'60s B-Movie Caper featuring a jungle guide (Michael Latimer) kidnapped by a lost tribe of natives who want to sacrifice him to their god - a white rhino. At the moment of his imminent dispatch, however, he is incredibly thrown backwards in time to a kingdom of dominant, uniformly buxom and comely brunette ladies and their blonde slaves. Their leader Queen Kari (Martine Beswick) puts the hard word on the junglist but he turns her down and sides with the blondes, leading to his imprisonment. Escape from the shoddily built prison looks simple enough, but then there's the matter of escaping this prehistoric timeslice and getting back to the '60s.Produced under the title 'Slave Girls of the White Rhino', the film was a hastily conceived means of recycling the sets and costumes from One Million Years B.C. Producer and director Michael Carreras wisely wrote the screenplay under a pseudonym. The name he chose, 'Henry Younger', was a joke at the expense of Anthony Hinds, who wrote under the name 'John Elder'.

`Beware the lash of the savage goddess - ruler of a kingdom of women - where men are chained... tortured... and made slaves to desire!'

Hammer were infamous for coming up with a title, a tagline and a poster before they ever bothered with anything as mundane as a script, and never was this more apparent than with the truly bizarre quota quickie Prehistoric Women, which spliced their caveman pictures and recycled sets from One Million Years B.C. with the lost city/evil queen aspects of She to results so surreal even for the 60s at their most psychedelic that they almost defy synopsis. Alan Bates imitator Michael Latimer's big game hunter finds himself out of the frying pan and into the fire after a tribe of African natives in rhino masks try to sacrifice him because "Your presence has disturbed the spirit of the white rhinoceros!" when a bolt of lightning sends him back in time where Martine Beswick's evil white rhino worshipping Amazon queen and her tribe of `Dark Ones' (brunettes) enslaves all `Fair Ones' (blondes), who she forces to dance for her or sit on a statue of a rhino before being wed to the `Devils of Darkness,' and imprisons all men in a cavern of chains with Sydney Bromley...

There's no lost city or dinosaurs, but all the other lost world staples are there, from `savage rituals' that look more like bad floor shows at naff clubs (there are almost enough dance routines for it to qualify as a musical) to the obligatory slave revolt and intervention of Mother Nature in a bad mood (well, it rains and there's the odd bit of thunder), though they've rarely seemed quite so insane as in this: you have to wonder what writer-director and Hammer heir apparent Michael Carreras was on when he concocted this one.

You've got to admire Hammer films. Rather than wasting the sets and costumes left over from One Million Years B.C, they decided to make this loopy lost world film with them instead.
Hunting for a wounded leopard on an African game reserve, David Merchant(Michael Latimer)stumbles onto the land of the sacred White Rhino, and is promptly taken for sacrifice by an angry tribe, who treat him to some prime Hot Gossip moves, before dragging him into a cave where sits the statue of the fabled beast.
Feeling a bit horny, David touches up the Rhino, only for time to freeze, and a secret door to a prehistoric world opens up. Of course, being the inquisitive sort he enters, and discovers a world ruled by a tribe of shapely brunettes, lead by evil Queen Kari, played with great gusto by Martine Beswick. Blonde girls are kept as slaves, whilst men are locked in a cave, starved of light.
There are two reasons to fear for the future of this arrangement, as all the men are twenty years older than the females, and there are no children.
Kari wants David as a sex slave, he prefers blondes, and more hilarity follows, as he gets involved in local tribal politics.
Then, after much derring do, we get a 'was it all a dream?' scenario, and you'll be asking yourself the same question, after spending an hour and a bit in the company of this insane film.
4 out of 5 for sheer entertainment value

On hunting an injured leopard lovely-eyed Michael Latimer is captured by an African tribe, but mysteriously escapes into the distant past to discover two female tribes. Martine Beswick is the evil queen of the dark-haired tribe who have enslaved the blonde-haired tribe, whose leader falls in love with their rescuer. Running through all this is the legend of the white rhino; whose return will free all from spiritual bondage. Sounds great!

Taking the film seriously it is pretty poor; one of the poorest lost world films out there and definitely one of the poorest Hammer offerings; low budget including the re-use of a previous Hammer set (One Million Years B.C) and a story and script probably thought out in a couple of minutes.

However, some Hammer films should not be viewed seriously. It's great, camp fun. Just wait for the return of the 'real' white rhino (on wheels!)

This film is better than anyone would have you believe - why it has never been shown on tv is beyond belief. And why Edina Ronay felt it necessary to quit acting and turn her hand to dressmaking is one of the sadder untold stories of our world - not that her clothes are rubbish. - check out your local TKMaxx for evidence

Objectively speaking, this 1967 Hammer production must be one of the WORST films ever made and in principle I should be so ashamed that I actually watched it, that I shouldn't be even considering writing this review, even less making it public... But as I cannot help myself, so here it is. As this film is entirely spoiled beyond redemption by the very fact of its existence, this review contains only very limited SPOILERS.

Ahem... So here is the "plot". A man of present times is magically transported in the times of Prehistoric Women in which a tribe of dominant Brunettes keeps in slavery and exploits a tribe of Blondes...))) I am not kidding, this is really the main point of the "plot"...))) Incidentally there is no men in this society - well, actually there is some, but for almost all the film they are locked in a basement and peel potatoes...))) Oh, important point, from time to time some Blondes are sacrificed to the White Rhinoceros - which mean they are tied to a statue of a White Rhinoceros with a huuuuuuuuge... horn, of course, what were you thinking... and soon after SOMETHING comes to carry them away, kicking and screaming, into the jungle ...

The only merit of this film is to show a great number of hot chicks in bikinis, beginning with Kari, the Queen of The Brunettes, played by Martine Beswick, who indeed is a real vision of glorious splendor... Other than that this film just has a kind of scenario of a soft porn, from which would be removed all genuine nudity and all sex scenes.

This film can not possibly be watched without help of a considerable quantity of potent potables.
