The false king holds the true princess in captivity, and plots to have Deathstalker killed, and Deathstalker must fight to free the princess. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

The best of the sword and sorcery flicks!
1 May 2000 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

This movie is packed with everything you would expect in a sword and sorcery film(except explicit sex)!

There are twenty-five breast shots, twenty-seven butt shots, six sword fights, fifteen impalings, two amputations, one arrow in the neck, three beheadings, on horse dragging, one eye-candy, one finger food, one mud wrestle, one pig face, one magical trans sexual operation, two bitch slappings, one crotch stabbing, one head smashing, and one draw and quartering.

It doesn't get much better than this!
