Deathstalker. Why is it so weird?


Im watching Deatstalker for DVD today and holy jeez the movie is just awkard with the acting, off the wall and feels more like a soft core porn poking fun at fantasy warrior adventure movies.

It's a Roger Corman movie, he made like 4 or 5 movies on the same set, in a short period of time, with hardly any money. Probably most of it went to Barbie Benton. There was a sword and sandal / sword and sorcery resurgence in the 80's and early 90's, probably kicked off by the popularity of Conan. Most of them lacked good writing, storytelling, and acting, so they made up for it with action and sexy men and women.
