"Silence, Scum!"
23 October 2005 | by bilgeboybobSee all my reviews

I agree that this is one for the "so bad, it's good" shelf. the real fun with this movie though, is playing Spot The Actor. there are many respectable British TV character actors in this Fantasy Farce who probably leave this one off their C.V. (resume) I won't spoil it for you,but go back and have a look! Also, there was a rumour that the story was written up from a "Dungeons and Dragons" campaign. I don't know if it's true, but with dialogue like "Silence, Scum" and "I bring a message, the message of death!" I can believe it. And here's one for trivia buffs, one fight scene in this movie is actually quoted in a fight choreography book as being a good example of how to film sword combat!!!!

Worth 8/10 just for being so damned entertaining!
