Italian sword and sorcery epic from splatter director Lucio Fulci loosely inspired from the Hercules mythos about two warriors on a quest and a vengeful demon who throws all kinds of nasty creatures along the way to fill scenes of gory violence. Written by
When a man meets a man, you never know which one will die. But when an animal meets a man, it's always the animal that dies. I'm on the animals' side.
Isn't this an animal you're eating?
I didn't kill him.
That's a pretty strange law.
Not when you're hungry.

A young man named Ilias, equipped with his magical crossbow, is sent on a journey to overthrow the evil nude sorceress Ocron. Along the way he meets up with a loner type and the two encounter wolf-monsters, snakes, and zombies!
This is nothing we haven't seen before, it was especially inevitable being of Italian origin and all. Man, they sure knew how and when to jump on the bandwagon!
Anyway, I think the photography is what most people remember about this movie. It is at times dream-like, murky, colorful, hazy, beautiful, and out-of-focus. A mixed bag for sure.
The music is energy-charged and quite good, but certainly not composer Claudio Simonetti's best.
The zombie attack sequence is quite nice. Too bad there wasn't anything flesh-munching.
If you like highly derivative films, nonsensical plots, gore galore, and a woman who spends the entire movie nude this is for you!
