Trailers From Hell: THE SWORD & THE SORCERER (1982)

I have a lot of (probably) misplaced affection for this film and this look at the trailer by the movie's editor indicates some of the reasons. If only they had produced a quick sequel or two! And where is the Blu-Ray o this one?

I love this film and have from my first viewing in a theater in '82!

A sequel of sorts was released a couple of years ago. But it really has nothing to do with this film.

I, too, freakin' LOVE this movie!

I struggled my way through the 'sequel' and was disgusted by its incompetence. What a mess!

Yeah, Tales of an Ancient Empire didn't turn out well. I've seen three different versions of it---well, four, actually---and the first was, IMO, the best. Albert Pyun screened it at Fright Night Film Fest in 2010 and 2011, I think it was. What Lionsgate released wasn't even his edit of the final film, and it's the worst version. That's not to say any of them were good, but the first edit, was the best.
