LES GLOUTONNES /THE GREEDY/EROTIC EXPLOITS OF MACISTE IN ATLANTIS (1973)

Here's a reprint of my brief review of LES GLOUTONNES, Jess Franco's Z peplum from 1973. Actually this and YUKA, made with same cast, on the same locations, are good, no-budget fun. Originally published by the wonderful Club Des Monstres!

Directed under his French name feather Clifford Brown, this is a fascinating mess due to the fact that Robert de Nesle, or somebody, took a supposedly "serious" movie and made it into a delirous collage of peplum, adventure, comedy, erotic and Fantasy patterns. It's Wal Davis as Maciste vs. Robert Woods as the evil Caronte who attempts to overthrow and kill the Queen of Atlantis, played by Alice Arno. Maciste prevails with the help of "the gobblers" the women of Atlantis. Howard Vernon makes an appearance as Cagliostro (see LA MALDICION DES FRANKENSTEIN), who watches the antics with his horny expectant, played by the puckish Rick Deconninck / Bigitoni. A very interesting, electic score by Robert Viger [?] Is a bonus. There's even a hardcore sex scene thrown in the mix. Mark Forest was supposed to play Maciste, according to Franco. The opening sequence of a misty valley and the first view of the stormy coast of "Atlantis" are outstanding images but unless you are a Franco completist you may hate this film. Franco aussi made YUKA (also 1973 with Davis / Wohlfaart Waldemar and Robert Woods playing the lead in Reviews another erotic "peplum" set in the Middle Ages. Robert MonellFor more reviews:
