Three underachieving friends are thrust into the world of LARPing and must battle Derek the Unholy in order to obtain a passing grade in one of their college courses.
Lloyd the Conqueror is a good-natured, light-hearted comedy that pokes fun at the world of LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) without being mean-spirited or disrespectful to the real community of Larpers. Three underachieving college friends, Lloyd, Oswald and Patrick, (the well cast Evan Williams, Scott Patey and Jesse Reid) are forced into the world of LARPing to battle the evil and very experienced Derek (played to unlikeable perfection by Mike "Bubbles" Smith). To even the odds against them, the three young men enlist the aid of nerdy but lovable Andy (Brian Posehn) and strong-willed Cassandra (Tegan Moss). Throw in a rag-tag band of hardcore Larpers, both good and evil, a Centaur and a Unicorn and hilarity ensues! Kudos to writer Andrew Herman, writer, director and producer, Calgarian Mike Peterson and his producing partners, Robert Peterson, Rob Ohlson, Matt Kelly and Brendan Hunter (aka Klaus, one of the Larping Danes) who made this low budget independent film into "The little movie that could!". Lloyd the Conqueror is a feel good, laugh out loud film which I highly recommend. Go see it; you won't be disappointed!
