Desir (Abby Dalton) and Vedric (Bradford Jackson) are being sacrifice for their taboo love in SAGA OF THE VIKING WOMEN AND THEIR VOYAGE TO THE WATERS OF THE GREAT SEA SERPENT

Typical Roger Corman cheapie that's fun to watch nonetheless and with a fantastic title. Some of the actors are sorta bad but Susan Cabot (not pictured) is good as usual. The one thing which diminishes the film's worth is the location. Though some might find the locations cool to watch the California landscape is not very Viking-like but then they're supposed to be in some unknown Barbarian land.

I came across this funny summary of the story at IMDb:

"In the Viking era, somewhere in the North Atlantic area, the Viking Women are awaiting the return of their Viking Men from a hunting expedition and, growing tired of the long wait, the Viking women, led by Desir, (and, possibly desire as Viking Nights are long and cold), set sail in search of their Viking Men. In the course of the journey, their ship is destroyed and a handful (of the best-looking ones) are washed upon an island. There, they find their Viking Men, who are being kept prisoners in a large rock quarry by a primitive band of Viking-era Barbarian Warriors. With much resourcefulness, they rescue the men-folk and all set sail for Viking Land, pursued hotly by the Barbarian Warriors. But the pursuit party is destroyed by a Viking-era Sea Monster, who then turns its attentions upon the Viking Flotilla, but Vedrick the Viking tosses a sword at the Sea Monster, which instantly deflates it."
