After landing on the 13th moon of Jupiter, the men from Earth debark from their ship to find a forested area containing the last remnant of lost Atlantis: an old man named Prossus, a bevy of nubile young women eager for husbands, and -- The Creature. "The beast with the head of a fish," laments Prossus. "It must be destroyed -- yet it is indestructible!"Written by

Low-low-low budget nonsense. The crew of a mission to the 13th moon of Jupiter think they've hit pay dirt when they discover an all-female, man-hungry civilization, the descendants of the Lost Continent of Atlantis (who presumably developed space flight before they sank into the ocean). The Atlantian women need men for the usual reasons, and the spacemen think that's just fine.
The highlight of the film is when the Fire Maidens do their ceremonial dance to a lilting rendition of `Stranger in Paradise' (no, it's not sexy, just funny). But alas, things are not as rosy as they first seem for our love-struck astronauts. A mutant in leotards attacks them, and the women turn out to have some strange habits (they get their energy by lying around in flames!).
Slow pacing and an actionless story make this one tough to enjoy, even for fans of the `Journey to the All-Girl Alien Planet' subgenera. `A & C go to Mars' does it much better.
