Worst Fantasy Adventure Movie EVER!!, 2 November 2002
Author: Perry Mercer (Blackace) from Glendale, AZ

Let's see..this movie came out in 1982 so I was...17yrs at the time. 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.
