Trivia

When Ragewar had its release in the U.S., Empire Pictures changed the title of the film to The Dungeonmaster, mostly due to the popularity of the role-playing game Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. Due to this, the newspaper advertising for The Dungeonmaster carried a disclaimer that said "This film is not endorsed by, or associated with T.S.R. Inc., publishers of the Advanced Dungeon and Dragons game." See more »

it's movies like this that got me through high school
14 February 2003 | by (the keep on ther borderlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is vastly imaginative. So imaginative in fact that it took 7 directors to make it! The sets costumes and monsters all work well together to paint a fabulous picture of a computer warrior overcoming adversity through 7 different evil worlds. One of which is an evil heavy metal concert featuring the band W.A.S.P.This movie is filled with marvelous special effects including dueling magical dragons, a stone giant, disgusting undead warriors and a score of fantastic weapons originating from the computer wristband worn by the hero. A very action packed epic by a team of excellent directors including the legendery Charles Band!
