British jungle guide and big game hunter David Marchand (Michael Latimer) is on safari in Africa when he is captured by a tribe of natives who want to sacrifice him to their (papier-mâché) white rhinoceros god.
Just as he’s about to be killed, however, the site of the sacrifice is struck by lightning and David is thrown backwards in time to a kingdom of beautiful big-breasted brunette women who keep a tribe of equally-buxom blonde women as their slaves.
David rejects the advances of the cruel and treacherous Queen Kari (Martine Beswick), who wants him to be her mate, and sides with the beautiful Saria (Edina Ronay) and her enslaved blonde compatriots, which leads to his being imprisoned in the dungeon.
The surprise ending makes absolutely no sense at all. In fact, the entire film is sheer hokum from start to finish – but it’s fun hokum.
Slave Girls was shot in just four weeks using sets and costumes from One Million Years BC (1966) in an attempt to wring some extra profit from the earlier film, which had been a very expensive production by Hammer standards.
After Slave Girls was deemed to not be of Hammer’s usual quality, it was edited down from its original 90-minute length and released as a support feature on a double bill with The Devil Rides Out.
Released in the US as Prehistoric Women.
