Review: Welcome to the world of tomorrow gone wrong.

The story tells of Lea (Linda Corwin), a survivor of the global armageddon and the self-titled nymphoid barbarian. What is a nymphoid barbarian (aside from a ploy to get teenage boys into the movie theatre)? Well, it's just like a normal barbarian, but as Lea says in the intro spiel, "sometimes my juices start to flow..."

We follow Lea on her bikini-clad journey through this barren landscape, fighting off strange penis-shaped dinosaurs, rape gangs, and a 'Skeletor' wannabe (Alex Pirnie), aided by a mysterious masked stranger (Mark Deshaies) and the erstwhile hero of the piece, Marn (Paul Guzzi).

It's not a journey that takes Lea very far, to be honest. And here's why...

I love Troma.

You know Troma. The cheesiness, the tackiness, the blatantly clear intent to wring every possible sexual innuendo out of every script, the gallons of fake blood, it all yells 'TROMA' from the rooftops.

This is really no different. In fact, the cheesiness and tackiness are probably overdone, leading to it appearing cheap rather than cheesy - even for Troma. There's little or no dialogue, the effects are terrible, the acting poor, the plot risible, and the climax rather flaccid.

Yep. It's a Troma. So in that respect, they hit the mark with all of the above.

It's just.... well, if anything, this is probably Troma-lite, with pretty much no nudity, very little gore, the lack of dialogue leads to no memorable lines (aside from Lea's introduction) and the monsters are on a level where they would have been rejected as unusable by the makers of Flesh Gordon, for pity's sake.

Is it worth watching? Probably, yeah. But only for shits and giggles. Because I doubt you'll get much more out of it, and it's no Toxic Avenger, that's for sure.
