DEATHSTALKER poster art!

I will soon be force marching my way through this series of films. For no good reason. I wonder how far I will actually get before I give up and run screaming away? They look fun/bad in that way I love so much! (And there's nudity!)

I have a sentimental attachment to DEATHSTALKER and really enjoyed revisiting/reviewing it last year. Though if I remember correctly the second one (or maybe the third?) is largely a clip-show, so be warned. ;)

Ugh! I hate it when they barely make a new film and try to pass it off as a sequel. Still.... nudity.

You should also watch BARBARIAN, which is not just a 20-years-later remake of DEATHSTALKER, but recycles a ton of grainy, mismatching DEATHSTALKER footage.

Jim Wynorski's DEATHSTALKER II is actually a worthy tongue-in-cheek romp that bears no resemblance to the original. It's one of Wynorski's best films and is good fun.

III and IV are quite terrible.
