Storyline

'Hell' is the name of the hero of the story. He's a prisoner of the women who now run the USA after a nuclear/biological war. Results of the war are that mutants have evolved, and the human race is in danger of extinction due to infertility. Hell is given the task of helping in the rescue of a group of fertile women from the harem of the mutant leader (resembling a frog). Hell cannot escape since he has a bomb attached to his private parts which will detonate if he strays more than a few hundred yards from his guard. Written by Rob Hartill

hilariously bad b-movie
2 February 2003 | by balesjasSee all my reviews

This is a must-see for all fans of 80's b-movies. It's also the biggest waste of a porn plot in the history of cinema. Come on, now -- the world is full of sterile men and you've got Rowdy Roddy Piper as one of few fertile men left to repopulate the earth, and there's one frontal nudity shot in the whole movie. Other than that, this movie is ridiculously bad with great b-movie lines such as "how about you try making love to a complete stranger in a hostile mutant territory, see how you like it?" How many other movies have a three- peckered frog king in them? None, I hope. It's tragically ludicrous and ludicrously tragic.
