is 2000. The place is Torremolinos [a resort town on the southern tip
of Spain known for its vibrant and liberal nightlife, particularly numerous
bars and clubs]. It is a city nurtured by the sexual mythos of the '70s.
Such a city does not seem prepared for the wave of terror that is approaching...
Dr Malvedades and his karate zombies invade the city. Their mission is
to remove the hearts from five "recently fucked" virgins as
a sacrificial offering. Their attempt is to resurrect the fearsome monster
Jocantaro from the depth of the sea, a half-octopus half-spider crab that
destroyed Atlantis. The goal is to dominate the world.
(a boy who has vowed abstinence until his 23 birthday) and his friends,
the Catholic Surfers Against Sexual Excess, will join forces against
the Karate Zombies, armed with the martial arts techniques of Master Miyagi
[played by Jess Franco] and the hypnotic power of Dr Orloff [director
Pedro Temboury]. Things become even more dire when his voluptuous girlfriend
Danuta cheats on him and gets captured by Dr Malvedades. Jess is desperate
to rescue Danuta from the pending sacrifice but years of celebacy have
also made him very horny.
