A Carnivàle Of Sex, Violence And Outrageous Style From Jess Franco!
In the tradition of BARBARELLA and DANGER: DIABOLIK comes this swinging '60s action orgy as bisexual super-villain Sumuru (the luscious Shirley Eaton of GOLDFINGER) launches a diabolical plan to enslave the male species with her army of lusty warrior women. But when Sumuru kidnaps a fugitive American playboy, she crosses a sadistic crime boss (Academy Award® winner George Sanders of ALL ABOUT EVE and VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED) and ignites a battle of the sexes that will bring Brazil to its knees in more ways than one.
Richard Wyler (THE BOUNTY KILLER) and Maria Rohm (EUGENIE) co-star in this kinky cult favorite from producer Harry Alan Towers (THE BLOOD OF FU MANCHU) and director Jess Franco (VENUS IN FURS).
