Saddle up your dragons because it’s SWORD AND SORCERY Month at Mondo Mondays, featuring a B-movie barrage of beefy barbarians, plucky princesses and sinister sorcerers!
“Feel the power!” A pair of greased-up, wise-cracking twin beefcakes seek revenge on the evil wizard who enslaved them as children, battling hordes of confused extras, giant rubber dragons and a script sent from bad movie heaven along the way in this hilariously cracked Sword and Sorcery epic made in Italy, produced by Cannon Films and starring the “internationally renowned bad boys of bodybuilding,” The Barbarian Brothers (aka David and Peter Paul), two massively muscled meatheads whose ridiculously casual “1980s Valley Dude” dialects never come within spitting distance of the Dark Ages. Sort of like a comical, magical Wrestlemania event filtered through the Italian Conan rip-off machine as driven by notorious exploitation filmmaker Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust), The Barbarians features what may be The Barbarian Brothers’ finest film performances (even topping their tour-de-force acting as bumbling truckers in Think Big), as well as juicy appearances by B-movie favorites like Richard Lynch (Invasion USA), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) and Big George Eastman (1990: The Bronx Warriors). And really, who can resist any movie that features a damsel in a cage commenting on the arrival of her two rescuers with “And look at the size of you two! This is Ismina’s lucky day!” (Dir. by Ruggero Deodato, 1987, Italy/USA, 87 mins., Rated R)
