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!
