Several of the actors appear in very small costumes, including loincloth-only garb. Though the film appears to be set in a warm climate, it was quite cold on the set and the actors would have to find warmth in between scenes. See more »

I've never seen a... pilgrim... who could use a staff the way you did.
Ah, but sir; all pilgrims share a deep love of life; especially their own!

How can anyone not like the Beastmaster? It's what movies are all about
it's got a hero, his woman, a villain, sidekicks, animals,
loincloths, violence and much much more! It's one of the earliest of films that HBO would play about 4 times a day so it was almost always available. John Amos from Roots and Good Times cheeses it up but damn, do I have a soft spot for the guy. Dar looks like my brother Eric. Rip Torn is a villain with bad teeth! The freaky eagle/vampire things are nutty. It's got ferrets - FERRETS in co-starring roles! Plus a panther and hawks and B-dialog and swords and last but not least "crazy-eyes" herself, Tonya Roberts! Yowza! It's basically a goulash of afternoon delight. Straight B an 85 - 8 out of 10. Caw caw! Catch it one time or a dozen, you'll love it.
