To maintain his powers, the evil wizard Traigon must sacrifice his firstborn child to the god Caligara. His wife, however, has other ideas and runs away after giving birth with her twin daughters.

Trivia

Director Jack Hill asked that his name be removed from the credits for two reasons: (1) the special effects, around which much of the script had been written, ended up being much less impressive than producer Roger Corman had promised, and (2) Hill had written a role for his friend Sid Haig but Corman refused to hire him at the last minute.

Really bad, but strangely entertaining
8 March 2002 | by Grinder79See all my reviews

Fans of the sword and sorcery genre might want to take a look at this laughably inept masterpiece about a pair of buxom twins fighting their evil father. This film has it all: bad acting, terrible dialogue, awful special effects, and of course, gratuitous nudity. As another reviewer mentioned, the dialogue appears to have been dubbed, even though the actors were clearly speaking English to begin with. This just serves to make the film even more amusing. Equally amusing is how initially nobody can tell that the twins are really girls, even though this should have been obvious to anybody with at least one eye. All in all, a fun film for fans of the genre. I give it a 7 out of 10.
