One: We are the Templars. The warriors of vengeance. We are the Templars. The high priests of death. We have been chosen to make others pay for the crime of being alive. We guarantee that all humanity, accomplices and heirs of the nuclear holocaust, will be wiped out once and for all. That the seed of Man will be canceled forever from the face of the earth!

"Hate!...and Exterminate!"
25 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The always reliable Enzo Castellari shows that even with a budget of twenty lira he can fill a movie full of action, style, and see through body-armour.

It's 2019, and it post-apocalypse time! That means humble survivors roaming the landscape, pray to an army of gay psychopaths called the Templars. These guys, led by giant George Eastman, just want to destroy everything they see. Not the most long term game-plan, I must admit, but you've got to give them credit for sticking to such a crap idea with unerring conviction.

Up against them is Scorpion (Giancarlo Perle), a lone warrior driving through the land in his weird bubble car type thing, getting into scrapes with the Templars, and mutants, but always finding time to pick up female survivors. He's closely followed by Fred Williamson, another warrior who likes to team up with Scorpion, seemingly just for a laugh.

There's a caravan of survivors led by some religious guy heading in the direction of 'the signal' who are under threat by the Templars, and it's up to Scorpion and Fred the hammer, and for some reason the blonde kid out of House by the Cemetery, to do them all in. That's the plot.

The New Barbarians is one of those films where you can safely lock your brain in a box and store it under the couch. If you try looking for logic, or anything like that, you're watching the wrong film. If you want to see brain meltingly camp action, this is the one for you.

I'm a sucker for Enzo Castellari films. Even here, where there doesn't seem to be any budget at all, he still manages to fill the screen with slow motion explosions, decapitations by machine, gadget filled cars, exploding bodies and sexy Euro-babes. There's plenty of stand out moments, from the scene where George Eastmen 'takes Scorpions pride', if you know what I'm saying, to guy getting shot in the chest and exploding.

Plenty of b-movie actors here too - Massimo Vanni sports an alarming mohican and drives a car that has a deadly spinning blade, Ennio Girolami's car has a flamethrower, Giovanni Frezza lives in the world's weirdest caravan, and Anna Kanakis seems slightly confused as, out of gratitude for not being raped by Scorpian, she had sex with him in a plastic see-through tent.

Plus, Fred Williamson fires arrows at people that either make them explode or make their heads fly off into the air - How can anyone not like that? The now defunct Vipco released this in a great widescreen copy. Not the best of Casterrali's work (I think, from this era in his career, it's edged out by both Bronx Warrior films), but the man's got style and talent. Just don't take it too seriously (I get the feeling that those involved in making it weren't).
