10,000 B.S.

Let’s start at the end, shall we? Or, if you prefer, at the bottom of the barrel, so we can work our way upwards: Quest for the Mighty Sword (1990).

Here we have the third sequel to a movie nobody really wanted in the first place. We’ve got a plot that runs out of steam before it’s even got started… acting that gets worse on a logarithmic scale as the film progresses… a substitute Ator who’d much rather be doing comedy… leftover costumes from Troll 2… just about everything you’d need to push the whole “Sword and Sorcery” subgenre into obsolescence. Heck, the movie’s got Laura “Black Emanuelle” Gemser in it — but she stays fully-clothed, for Crom’s sake!

But the final indignity, at least as far as I’m concerned? Guess which famous story writer/director Joe D’Amato decided to rip off this time…!
