The film opens with a guy ready to force himself on a bound
female. Enter a bunch of ugly savages and the guy takes off. Enter Deathstalker who kills
everyone but the bound female who is very quick to show her thanks as well as her breasts.
Deathstalker winds up saving a witch from the evil Munkar's men, who then goes into this
spiel about the powers of creation-a sword, an amulet, and a chalice. Munkar has the
chalice and the amulet but the sword is in a cave. Deathstalker goes to the cave where he
short, really ugly dude who tells him he's been living under a curse. Enter this tall,
really ugly guy. Deathstalker gets the magic sword and makes short work of the tall, ugly
guy. Here's where it gets really interesting. Deathstalker turns into a kid and leads the
short, ugly guy out of the cave where he falls in a pool of water and reverts to his human
form. Deathstalker reverts too. It didn't make any sense to me either. DS meets up
with a guy going to Munkar's tournament with the winner becoming Munkar's heir. They in
turn meet a topless woman also going to the tournament. Munkar's plan is for the
tournament fighters to kill each other and he offs the winner thereby eliminating all
threats to his rule, which, as far as plans go, is a pretty good one. All the entrant's
are at Munkar's place. Munkar shows off Princess Codille (Barbi Benton). A fight ensues.
Later, Munkar transforms one of his henchmen into Codille in order to kill DS. The plan
fails but leads ultimately to the death of the before mentioned topless woman. The
tournament begins, leading to some pretty good fight scenes. If you think DS wins the
tournament, you'd be right. Big finale. Deathstalker vs Munkar. Munkar throws illusions at
DS. DS throws Munkar to the rabble who are in the mood for some old fashioned drawn and
quartering. Exit Munkar. Deathstalker destroys the three objects of creation. The end.
"I've taken some treasure here and a girl from valley and I'll share them with
"This isn't your day is it" Deathstalker to the guy he just killed
"This isn't my day either" Deathstalker after his coitus is interrupted
"Heroes and fools are the same thing"
"I live in this damp cave trapped eating mice, moths, bugs and you come here looking
"That doesn't sound like much of a prize to me, inheriting everything from a sorcerer
who never dies"
"It's gone" uttered during the man-into-woman trick
What a great movie. A kickin' soundtrack, swordfights, magic, a satisfactory amount of
tits and ass to please any barbarian, in
short, everything you need for a sword and sorcery epic. Well worth the watch.

Summary: Best reason to see this film: Lana
This is the first of a 4-movie series, and it is the best of the lot. Rick Hill does a
job as a leather-clad adventurer on his way to a warrior's tournament. He comes upon
an evil guy dragging a flaxen-haired but dirty-faced slave girl through the woods. He
the evil guy, frees the slave girl, and she allows him to pull down her filthy slave
and kiss her. That's the first nude scene, and it ain't much.
A bit later Rick has teamed up with another warrior and an older gentlemen also on their
way to the tournament. They come upon some soldiers ransacking a farm, and in a
decent fight scene they manage to kill the soldiers and rescue the family before moving
on. Later that night they realize that they are being followed, so Rick's buddy scouts out
into the darkness. He finds Lana Clarkson wearing little else than a mask, a robe, and a
pair of boots. And a very large broadsword. And brother, am I glad.
When I rented this, the only name I recognized was Barbi Benton, long-time Playboy
bunny, Hugh Hefner mansion mistress, and somewhat-famous actress (she even had a
top guest starring role on an episode of the original "Love Boat"). The downside
Barbi doesn't really show us much, er, talent. The real looker is blonde-haired Lana
Clarkson, who is very pleasing to the eyes and also knows how to swing that
broadsword. Now that's a woman!
As you might have guessed, in an outfit like that Lana was eventually gonna have a
soft-porn scene with Rick, which is actually well-done as far as "R" movies go.
scene lasts about as long as it took you to read this paragraph.
They arrive at the castle where the evil king is having a great feast the night before the
tournament. As a prelude to the next day's entertainment, he brings out Barbi (who is
wearing a sheer white gown) and chains her to a rock at the top of some stairs. The evil
king announces that whomever gets to the top can have his way with Barbi. Naturally,
our hero wants in on the action, defeats all comers, and upon reaching the top of the
stairs has a change of heart and releases Barbi. Such a waste of potential, in my opinion.
I think it would've been interesting for Rick to have Barbi, to have Lana get jealous
about it, and have her and Barbi duke it out in the tournament bare fisted (and eventually
bare-chested), with the winner getting Rick. Oh well. They didn't ask me to make this
>From there the movie pretty much goes downhill. It's an ugly downward spiral that
continues through the next three movies. Lana Clarkson fans will enjoy this film because
you can fastforward through the dialogue and get to the nude scenes. Rick Hill fans
looking for a good plot will be better off watching him in "I, The Jury" with
Assante, where he plays a crazed professional killer who has a thing for redheads.
As for Barbi Benton, get a back issue of "Playboy". She really doesn't
to this film. And I never really cared for her as a model, either.
