Conquest (1983)

Fantasy. Italy/Spain/Mexico. Starring Jorge Rivero, Andrea Occhipinti & Sabrina Siani. Directed by Lucio Fulci.

VCL (Holland). English dubbed. Fullscreen.

Fulci's unique, fog-filled and freeform contribution to the sword and sorcery genre has it's fair share of detractors even among his hardcore fanbase (and their critique is valid on many points), but personally I love this film! I would recommend approaching in a similiar way you approach a good Jess Franco film instead of your typical Conan ripp off - don't worry about lack of logic, character development or the nonsensical "plot" and just try to enjoy the sinister, fog-filled atmosphere, the spectacular gore, the wonderful Simonetti synth score, the magic crossbows, wolfmen and Sabrina Siani's tits... Okay, so it doesn't make any sense, but neither did City of the Living Dead! 4/5
