Trivia

Along with the scenes culled from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), the scenes where the Wizard character's wife/Queen is changed into an old hag then a spider, the swirling yellow vortex that turns men into burnt, shambling zombies, and another character turns into a werewolf (actually a hairy ogre) are all taken from Bert I. Gordon's The Magic Sword (1962). Any fan of TV's "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (ep. #411) will recognize the scenes immediately. See more »

Absolutely worth watching!
6 January 2004 | by (Istanbul) – See all my reviews

One can not put this movie into any categorie because it has created a new categorie in film world. It might be classified as cult-scifi but in a very different way. Some people might think that it is a comedy but it is absolutely a very very serious movie which is made under very difficult circumstances. Very very low finance has forced the producers to use incredible items, and creativity is at the extreme measures. If you are interested in extra-ordinary movies, don't miss it.
