When Ragewar was released in the U.S., Empire Pictures changed the title to The Dungeonmaster, mostly due to the popularity of the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons. Newspaper ads included a disclaimer that said "This film is not endorsed by, or associated with, T.S.R. Inc., publishers of the Dungeon and Dragons game." See more »
In the 'Slasher' segment, Paul Bradford is found by the police, in an alley with a dead body. He is arrested, and put in the back of their car. When we next see him, the officers are just calling in the crime, and requesting back-up to the alley - but they are already driving. This means that the officers have simply left the body and the crime scene, without taking any steps to secure it or call it in.
In reality, the officers would have to wait for back-up to arrive before they could leave the scene. See more »

The 1984 U.K. EIV video release entitled 'Ragewar' includes a pre-credit dream sequence not included in the 1985 U.S. Lightning Video 'Dungeonmaster' release. The 1984 U.K. EIV release entitled 'Ragewar' cuts out much of Mestema's 'cat torturing' speech, as featured in the U.S. 'Dungeonmaster' release. See more »
Confused patchwork scifi/fantasy film from producer Charles Band
.Jeffrey Byron stars as a computer technician who, along with girlfriend Leslie Wing, gets transported to another dimension to do battle with Mestema (Richard Moll from TV's Night Court). Mestema is a Satan-like evil wizard who wants to pit his magical prowess against the technology of the hero. He does so by transporting the newly-outfitted computer tech to various scenarios that he then has to escape from/defeat the monstrous villains in his way. These scenarios include an ice cave filled with random statuary (a wolfman, a witch doctor, Jack the Ripper) that come to life and attack him; a cave with a little horned troll on a throne who commands zombie warriors; another cave (sensing a trend here?) with yet another horned troll; another scene takes place in a nightclub during a stage performance by the hairmetal band W.A.S.P., because why not? Each segment was written and directed by different people, 7 in all, which helps explain the lack of tonal consistency. Fans of garbage 80's genre cinema may find something to chew on, but most viewers should avoid.
