The Beastmaster (1982, USA / West Germany)

The Beastmaster (1982)

Don Coscarelli will always be famous with horror fans for his Phantasm series, but for me personally there’s two films that truly define him as a director. The wonderfully underrated 2002 horror/comedy Bubba Ho-Tep and the 1982 action/fantasy tale The Beastmaster.

The Beastmaster is a piece of trash cinema that is often forgotten for how amazing it is. It epitomises what sword & sorcery films should be. It’s shambolic storyline and ropey acting only adds to its charm.

“Don’t move. The beast is fierce. But if we show no fear, we might escape.”
