To maintain his powers, the evil wizard Traigon must sacrifice his firstborn child to the god Caligara. His wife, however, has other ideas and runs away after giving birth with her twin daughters. Before dying, she hands the girls over to the warrior Krona who promises to raise them as great soldiers. Twenty years later, Traigon returns and begins hunting down his daughters once again. Will the twins, with the help of the Barbarian Erlik and the Viking Baldar, be able to defeat their father? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Director Jack Hill asked that his name be removed from the credits for two reasons: (1) the special effects, around which much of the script had been written, ended up being much less impressive than producer Roger Corman had promised, and (2) Hill had written a role for his friend Sid Haig but Corman refused to hire him at the last minute.

Quotes

Krona: I did not train you men in my arts so that you would hunt down and butcher women.

Worst Fantasy Adventure Movie EVER!!
2 November 2002 | by (Glendale, AZ) – See all my reviews

Let's see..this movie came out in 1982 so I was...17yrs at the time. Now..my cousin, who was only 12 at the time, had saw The Sword and the Sorcerer with me just a few months earlier and we were looking forward to the sequel to that movie. Unfortunately Lee Horsley decided to do Matt Houston instead. Anyway..we were looking for another Fantasy Adventure movie that was similar. After seeing the trailer of Sorcerer and watching those HOT twins Mira & Mara snatching some arrows out of the air, we just had to see this film. That turned out to be the biggest mistake of our lives. Not only was ALL the action sequences shown in the trailer, but the whole movie was just over 70 mins. long. People who have reviewed this movie on IMDb didn't mention that. The plot was just stupid and the special effects were the cheesiest I've even seen. The final battle with the Griffon and Huge Head was silly and dumb. I was so angry when I left the theater and my cousin was like, "That's it? That movie was terrible." Hopefully you will not be able to find a copy of this video on VHS. It's not even worth 5 cents to see. The people who created this film should be force to watch it for 36 hours straight as a lesson to not release HORRID movies to the public. Stay far away from this stinker. Rent a copy of "The Sword & the Sorcerer" on DVD instead. A much better film with decent action and an understandable plot.
