Paul (Tomb of the Werewolf) Naschy stars in this god awful medieval movie as a degenerate Baron searching for the all powerful “Philosopher’s Stone”. To get it, he has to sacrifice some virgins. (Hey, a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.) In the meantime, he also tortures men on the rack, decapitates people, whips them, makes a dude wear a hot iron crown and rapes farmer’s daughters. It goes down the shitter fast when for some reason it stops being a medieval torture movie and becomes a third rate Robin Hood rip-off. (Complete with a Little John fight scene!) The cheesy sword fights and sub-Medieval Times Theme Park production values were too much for me to take, not to mention the fact that it’s as boring as a llama turd. Incredibly, it’s worse than Naschy’s werewolf movies.
