While traveling to Australia, American detective Mike Harber (Ross Hagen) finds himself stranded in The Philippines and obliged to assist in solving the mysterious disappearance of a famous Jai alai athlete. After hearing from a witness that the man might have been kidnapped by a group of beautiful, hearse driving women, Mike quickly finds himself a new target of the Wonder Women, a group of martial arts fighting assassins who work for the mysterious Dr. Tsu (Nancy Kwan); an evil genius scientist who’s been collecting able-bodied men for use in her bizarre body part transplant experiments!
Martial arts madness, dangerous chase scenes, insult-heavy dialogue, vague sci-fi twists, and a whole lot more nudity and violence than its very misleading PG rating would imply. Robert Vincent O’Neill’s WONDER WOMEN is a quintessential slice of early 70s drive-in craziness, featuring supporting performances from Roberta Collins, Sid Haig and Filipino exploitation stalwart Vic Diaz. Vinegar Syndrome is pleased to bring this eye-poppingly colorful B movie classic to Blu-ray, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative and featuring both its original domestic theatrical version as well as the complete, never-on-disc extended European cut!
