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.
