Golden Temple Amazons (1986)

How bad is it? It's one of the tamer, but odder and less competent, Jess Franco films.
Should you see it? Hmm. Okay. Mildest possible yes.

Written by Jesus Franco and at least partly directed by him, this is the story of a girl whose parents were killed by Amazons and seeks revenge when she becomes an adult. Though the film is supposed to be in Africa, the Amazons are white and the locations look like the Philippines. There's a lot of catfights and nearly continuous gratuitous toplessness, a pet monkey and a witch doctor, naked cave exploration and a surprisingly smutty elephant ride. It's tame by Franco standards, suggesting he was called in to fix a problem film.
