Muscle-bound Ator and his mute East Asian sidekick travel from the ends of the earth to save his aged mentor from the evil, mustachioed Zor.
Director Joe D'Amato made the movie very quickly, in an effort to cash in on the popularity of Conan the Destroyer (1984). D'Amato made the first Ator movie in response to the success of Conan the Barbarian (1982).
Thong, the fish is ready!
In the final scene, when Ator rides back to the ends of the Earth, tire tracks appear in the background.
The most famous version of this film (seen on Mystery Science Theater 3000) is the Film Ventures International version, called Cave Dwellers. Includes footage from the movie Taur the Mighty in the opening and closing credits.
