Pygar (Robert Woods) and his girlfriend Marcia persuade strongman Maciste (Val Davis) to accompany them to the jungle, to the village of Marcia's amazon tribe to steal the tribe's treasure. But once there, Pygar and Marcia are immediately made captives while Maciste is chosen be the queen (Alice Arno) to be the all-female tribe's stud - so Maciste has to shag himself through 32 women, repeatedly. Normally, the studs of the tribe are killed after they did their duty, but because Maciste fucks quite so well and never tires, the queen falls in love with him. All that fucking though got Maciste thinking: Pygar and Marcia only wanted to use him as bait for the amazons while they bag the treasure themselves, and they probably banked on him getting killed anyways ...

That the queen might have fallen in love with Maciste doesn't sit well with her former favourite Yuka (Lina Romay), who soon makes up an elaborate lie that Maciste has brought some kind of disease to the tribe, and sees to it that the queen and her tribe turn on Maciste. Meanwhile she frees Pygar and Marcia to help them get hold of the treasure.

In an all-nude one-on-one fight, Maciste defeats the queen, then exhausts her whole tribe in a big orgy, then he helps Pygar, Marcia and Yuka make their way to the cave the treasure is hidden in. Marcia dies somewhere along the way, but Pygar and Yuka make it in ... and out witht he treasure, only to be killed by the amazons.

The queen decides to make Maciste king of the amazons, but the next night, when all are sleeping after another orgy, Maciste makes an escape ...


Of course, this is little more than a silly softcore sex film that doesn't have much to do with the Maciste films of old and is more interested in showing women in the nude than anything else - yet on a directorial level, Jess Franco makes this film better than you expect it to be: The film's camerawork, including its many odd angles, zooms, shaky pans and the like, borders the hypnotic, which is only supported by very atmospheric colour compositions, Franco's unapologetic voyeurism is refreshingly honest, his tongue-in-cheek narrative approach is pleasingly unmoronic, and that most of the women are very pretty in all their nakedness doesn't hurt one bit either.

This all makes this film not exactly great - it's still silly as hell -, but you'll probably enjoy it more than you expect.
