The cast and film crew began to secretly despair of Jesus Franco's notoriety for filming the production with little money at hand.
Centuries ago, an ancient race conquered this continent. Now their secrets are mine, and with this knowledge, I shall master the world.
The original cinema version was cut by the BBFC to receive an 'A' certificate with edits to nudity during the dungeon scenes and shots of Sancho's men attacking the women in the village. The 1994 Lumiere video release was more heavily cut and lost 1 minute 46 secs of censor cuts to shots of chained women, a scene where a woman is stripped topless and bitten by a snake, and shots of a snake being crushed by falling rubble. For the 1999 Warner video similar cuts were made though the cuts length was reduced to 44 secs via different edits. All the cuts were waived for the 2007 Optimum DVD.
