The Bloody Pit #9 - The BEASTMASTER Trilogy


THE BEASTMASTER is one of the most beloved Guilty Pleasure films of the 1980s. Countless screenings of it on cable in the late 80's and early 90's cemented its place in the hearts of film fans all over North America and possibly the world. It easy to understand this movie's place in the memories of wide-eyed young men - if you were looking for a fun adventure tale on a rainy afternoon you could do much worse. The film sports lots of small scale action, pretty women, real animals doing odd things and a sword wielding hero running through the whole thing kicking villainous ass at every turn- what is there not to love!

Sadly, not all of us came to the BEASTMASTER party early but luckily co-host Jeff Nelson is a longtime fan of the film and is willing to defend it from --- those who might sneer. But will Mr. Nelson's fandom hold up as he and I examine all three movies in this series? That's right- there are three Beastmaster movies and we are gonna cover all of them! So set back, relax, keep an eye out for thieving ferrets and join us as we discuss the madness of THE BEASTMASTER TRILOGY. We even touch on the television series as best we can considering we've never seen a single episode.

If you would like to comment on the show or fill in any of the gaps in our knowledge please drop us a line at thebloodypit@gmail.com and we'll be happy to respond. Maybe next time out we'll talk about the ATOR trilogy.
