As their men have been away for 3 years, Desir (Abbey Dalton), leader of the Viking women, decides for them to embark onto a voyage to the seas themselves to look for themBut their voayge seems to be doomed right from the start, as Enger (Susan Cabot), the Black Priestess, jealous of Desir's status in the tribe, makes an attempt on Desir's life, then their ship is almost crashed by the legendary serpent that lives in the Vortex, before it is crushed in a thunderstorm, & the stranded Viking women (plus Ottar [Jonathan Haze], their sole male companion) are taken prisoner by the Grimaults, who see themselves as being protected by the Serpent of the Vortex, and whatever spoils of the serpent's exploits are washed upon their shores they take as theirs.

& thus the Grimaults have taken the men of the Viking women prisoners & made them work in their mines. However, Stark (Richard Devon) fionds the Viking women a whole lot tougher to break than their male counterparts, & he can prevent them from breaking themselves & their men free only thanks to Enger, who has teamed up with him, but demands Vedric (Brad Jackson) - Desir's companion, whom she has long laid an eye upon - as a price for her treachery. When Vedric refuses her though, she asks Stark to kill both him and Desir.

When Stakr wants to burn them both alive as a sacrifice for the Serpent, Enger has a change of heart, & her prayer to Thor, God of Thunder, starts a thunderstorm that not only extinguishes the fire that's supposed to kill Vedric & Desir but also strikes down Stark's cowardly son Senja (Jay Sayer) by lightning. Impressed by this sort of divine power, the rest of the Grimaults flee, except for Stark, who is defeated (but not killed) in a fight against Vedric. Thwe Vikings then make for the sea, but Stark is of course furious enough to soon get his soldiers onto their trail, & only thanks to Enger, who finally gives her life for her people, can the Vikings reach the shore - & a boat conveniently lieing there - in safety.

Stark of course hasn't given up pursuit yet, but out on the open sea, his boat, not that of the Vikings, is taken down by the sea serpent ...

 

Of course, this movie had nowhere near enough budget to be really convincing as a period piece - let alone to feature convincing creature effects. It does however score high on the trash level, starring hosts of familiar b-movie actresses, hip 1950's hairdos & make-up included, who had just been in some sci-fi or juvenile delinquency or whatever movie the week before, in brief skins, and featuring easy-to-follow storyline steeping knee deep in pulp fiction (& not even trying for historical accuracy - which in this case is a good thing) & a very straightforward direction.
