The Lost Empire (1985)

Lost Empire, The (1985, USA) C-83m. SCOPE ** D: Jim Wynorski. Starring Melanie Vincz, Raven De La Croix, Angela Aames, Paul Coufos, Robert Tessier, Angus Scrimm. Engagingly silly fantasy adventure features three busty babes, who infiltrate island of mysterious Scrimm, who is said to have a pact with the devil. Really absurd little trash movie has amusing one-liners and C-movie veteran Wynorski's direction (his first) is not bad. Steals from every big movie franchise (INDIANA JONES, STAR WARS, James Bond, ) and throws in sex, violence, swordplay and prison action among other things. Which B-movie fan could resist? Wynorski also scripted and produced. Filmed in 1983.
