When in the trapped spiked room, the spikes are obviously stopped or pulled by the actors when they grab them, especially by the actor on the floor who is supposedly having a spike pass through him. It's obvious he is pulling the spike toward himself. See more »

Much underrated gem
20 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

A much underrated gem this terrific children's fantasy picture boasts several fantastic performances from it then unknown cast, several of whom used it as a springboard to go on to become major Hollywood and TV stars later in their careers. Excellent special effects for the time in hindsight and with beautiful art direction, this film truly deserves to be dug out and dusted off and shown the respect it deserves. Admittedly the damsel in distress running away endlessly from the evil baddie is a bit tiring but the battle sequences are genuinely rousing and brilliantly directed. A true British classic!
