Added DiffLines:

* BigEater: Estrild. She is always eating and always hungry.
* CoversAlwaysLie: Par for the course with Corman's fantasy films. There's only four women in Amethea's band and two of them - Estrild and Taramis - aren't exactly warriors. And while their clothing is impractical, it's not that skimpy!
* EvilArmy: Lord Arrakur's men.
* EvilOverlord: Lord Arrakur.
* FauxActionGirl: Estrild. Despite supposedly being a barbarian she is... not a capable fighter would be the most polite way of putting it.
* GoGoEnslavement: Most of the harem girl costumes.
* LaResistance: The rebels trying to bring down Lord Arrakur.


Added DiffLines:

* ShellShockSilence: Taramis goes into this following her rape at the hands of Lord Arrakur's men and then Lord Arrakur himself.


* AccidentalInnuendo: The R-rated cut of the movie unintentionally makes this happen during Amethea's escape from the torture chamber. When the torturer attempts to rape Amethea, it is clear in the unrated cut that she is [[MurderousThighs squeezing his lower body between her muscular thighs]]. The R-rated cut eliminates all the shots below the waste depicting this, causing it to look like Amethea is [[GroinAttack crushing the torturer's penis]] with her [[SuperSexOrgans super-strong vagina]].



* FetishFuel: Between the harem girls, the well-oiled male gladiators, the warrior women, the bondage and the torture, it may be faster to list what fetishes aren't indulged at some point over the course of the film.

WordOfGod is that the movie was written to give a starring role to Lana Clarkson, who had proven quite popular and impressed Roger Corman himself in a minor role as the [[ActionGirl woman warrior]] Kaira in the original [[''Film/Deathstalker'']]. Given the timing of the film's release, it seems likely that it was also meant to capitalize on the release of the 1985 [[''Film/RedSonja'']] movie.

The movie opens on a barbarian village where Amethea is about to wed Argan. Busy with preparations for the wedding, the villagers are caught off-guard when they are [[WeddingSmashers attacked by Lord Arrakur]]. The village is completely destroyed, with the male survivors recruited as gladiators for the arena and the women - including Amethea's younger sister, Taramis - being taken for [[RoyalHarem Lord Arrakur's harem]].

Joined by her [[FauxActionGirl handmaiden]] Estrild and [[ActionGirl fellow warrior]] Tiniara, Amethea sets off on a quest to rescue her people and avenge the destruction of their home. Along the way to Arrakur's city, they attack an outpost where they discover a seemingly traumatized Taramis. Once in the city, they meet up with [[LaResistance a rag-tag group of rebels]], agreeing to help them as best they can.

Unfortunately, [[MurphysLaw things go wrong]] after Estrild attracts the attention of two guards and Taramis [[HappinessInSlavery turns herself into Lord Arrakur]]. The rest of the team are captured after that and Arrakur becomes obsessed with breaking Amethea even as Taramis becomes his [[GoGoEnslavement new favorite plaything]].
