Synopsis

Barbarian Queen
When Amazon queen Amathea's (Lana Clarkson) hubby-to-be is swiped by a marauding warlord (along with most of the other local men) and her lovely little sister Taramis (Dawn Dunlap) is raped, the vengeful Queen sets out with two other lady warriors to set things right. ~ Phillip Erlewine, Rovi

The Deathstalker
Richard Hill is Deathstalker in this sweat-drenched Sword-and-Sorcery romp. Armed with the Sword of Justice, which renders him invincible, Hill takes on main villain Victor Bo. Barbi Benton is the delectable damsel in distress, whose costume budget must have come to about 18 cents. This Argentine/U.S. production was released in Argentina as El Cazador De La Muerte. It must have developed a following, or why else would there have been a Deathstalker II, Deathstalker III, and Deathstalker IV? ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Deathstalker II: Duel of the Titans
Quite different from the original Deathstalker, this fantasy sequel finds the title character (here played by John Terlesky) as a medieval contract man. Deathstalker is hired by a beautiful princess (Monique Gabrielle) to regain her throne, stolen by an evil wizard. ~ John Bush, Rovi

The Warrior and the Sorceress
Borrowing themes established in Yojimbo and its Italian version A Fistful of Dollars, this action/fantasy film features the exploits of Kain (David Carradine), a drifter/holy-man/martial arts expert who comes upon a village divided into three parts: two clans fighting over control of a water well, and the impoverished masses who suffer at their hands. Since this village is on an imaginary planet with two suns that circle across the sky, water is a premium commodity. Sorceress Naja (Maria Socas) is alternately the captive of either one or the other of the embattled clans and obviously needs to be rescued. Just like Sanjuro, the samurai in Akira Kurosawa's classic film, Kain pits the two clans against each other so his own job of finishing off the bad guys and saving Naja will be less strenuous. The most memorable aspect of this low-budget film is a dancer who is not wearing a double-breasted suit, but should be. Like the two suns and the two clans, she also has two of each. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
