The Woman Hunt is a 1972 film directed by Eddie Romero. It was the last of several films Romero made for Roger Corman's New World Pictures and is an unofficial remake of the short story "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell.[1]

John Ashley said the film was originally called Women for Sale.[2]


Mercenaries Tony (John Ashley), Silas (Sid Haig) and Karp (Ken Metcalfe) kidnap women and take them to an island where a wealthy man named Spyros (Eddie Garcia) assembles a group to hunt the women. Tony begins to question what he is doing and helps McGee (Pat Woodell), Billie (Charlene Jones) and Lori (Laurie Rose) escape. Karp and Silas have a falling out and Karp kills Silas. Spyros' head of security, Magda (Lisa Todd), goes after the escapees but is killed in a trap. Billie and Lori are killed during the hunt and Tony kills Spyros. He and McGee escape to safety.
