I really feel like Netflix has allowed me to find the jackpot of Cheeseball movies. Yesterday, I watched Barbarian Queen which starred Lana Clarkson and now I have Deathstalker which also features Lana Clarkson. I do want to say one thing before I continue and that is I didn’t realized yesterday that this Lana Clarkson was the same person that was killed by legendary music producer Phil Spector. This Argentine-American film stars Rick Hill (Liar Liar) as Deathstalker, a fierce swordsman that stands alone in the wannabe Game of Thrones world he lives in. He is sent on a mission by a witch to recover two very important artifacts, a chalice an a amulet. He already has a sword, but when you link that with the two artifacts, it’ll make you invincible. On the way, he is invited to a tournament at a evil sorcerer’s castle named Munkar (Bernard Erhard), where they will fight to the death during the day and rape his slaves at night. The film also stars former Playboy Playmate Barbi Benton, Richard Brooker (Friday The 13TH Part III), and Victor Bo (Barbarian Queen).
If you love endless amounts of gratuitous sex and breasts, then this may be the film for you. These types of films were pooping up everywhere due to the success of Conan The Barbarian and believe it or not, this film had some success to it. The film’s sword fighting action is a lot better than what you’ll see in Barbarian Queen which also stars Lana Clarkson, but the acting is still a little cheesy. The movie has everything you would want from a fantasy film with troll like creatures, wizards, sorcerers, and plenty of women in bondage. There’s even a guy with the head of a pig in this film, you can’t get any better than that. I do want to say that I found Bernard Erhard to actually be a very good actor in this film, he was convincing enough to me. On a scale of 1 being close to an A-List film and 5 being the cheesiest film of all time, I am giving this film a 3.5
