G | | Adventure
The captain, crew, and passengers of an old freighter-all of them with dark secrets to keep-find themselves adrift in a mysterious land full of monsters, conquistadors, and killer seaweed.
Final film of Jimmy Hanley.
The choice is yours. It is simple. Either join us and tell your companions on the boat to do likewise, in which case all of your supplies will be turned over to us.
Nick, chief engineer: Or else?
El Supremo: We shall kill you. Then kill your companions and take the supplies.
Sarah: He'll kill...
At the beginning of the film the captain performs the eulogy for El Supremo and they then bury him at sea. On top of the wrapped body lies a sword. Ss they tilt the body the sword falls towards the water. As the body hits the water there is no sign of the sword at all or the splash ripples it would have caused.
The Warner / Seven Arts US release was pared down by 8 minutes or so, of slightly more adult material and released with a G rating. It would have otherwise gotten the M rating, which later morphed into GP and then PG. When Anchor Bay released the VHS and DVD editions, they found an uncut print and cut the material back into the film. You can notice these scenes as they are of slightly poorer quality than the bulk of the film.
