During the height of the Roman Empire a small barbarian village is raided by Roman soldiers as it prepares to celebrate the wedding of its king and queen. The villagers are either put to the sword or taken as slaves and gladiators. The barbarian queen Amathea and two of her warrior women manage to survive. They set off in pursuit of the Romans in hopes of rescuing the queen's sister and the king, who is being taken to the capital city to fight as a gladiator.

The film was originally released in 1985, and it had a brief run in theaters. It was later released on VHS home video, both in an R-rated theatrical version and unrated version that included a bit more sex and violence.

The film was produced as a campy B movie and had no expectation of winning the hearts of critics. Most critics remained unmoved by the film, and their reviews explained that the movie is no more and no less than what it intends to be. Some critics were kinder, claiming that the film delivers some campy fun. Others, however, were disturbed by the many scenes of sexual violence against women and exploitation of women.

Barbarian Queen II: The Empress Strikes Back was released direct to video in 1992. This ostensible sequel had no connection, in terms of plot and characters, to the original. The same can be said of Wizards of the Lost Kingdom II, which features a character named Amathea.

Barbarian Queen is an Adventure, Fantasy movie that was released in 1985 and has a run time of 1 hr 10 min. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.1.

Barbarian Queen is available to watch free on Tubi TV and stream, download on demand at Amazon Prime online. Some platforms allow you to rent Barbarian Queen for a limited time or purchase the movie and download it to your device.
