Hell-bent on becoming the ultimate ruler of the universe by sacrificing his firstborn, the powerful conjurer of illusions and master of the Black Arts, Traigon, makes an unholy pact with the evil deity, Kalghara. However, fate has other plans, and as the magician's wife gives her last breath to protect her newborn twin daughters, Traigon dies. Nearly two long decades later--imbued with the unlimited white force of their mentor, Krona--the dauntless warrior-sisters, Mira and Mara, embark on a dangerous mission to avenge their slaughtered mother and to defeat the resurrected warlock once and for all. Who shall live and who shall die in the final clash between good and evil? Written by Nick Riganas

I'm sorry but what is a "Girl Children ?
12 August 2018 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

The impact of Conan The Barbarian on the Sword and Sorcery genre is so huge that non movie take on the same idea after it can be called original and the same can be said for Sorceress(1982) but instead of being a cheap rip off the movie try it best to be as entertaining as possible and succeeded when it so damn funny and memorable.Twins hot girl who don't know about "The birds and the bees" and when one of them get down to business the other can experience too ?
