It's easy to tell that this was made in the days of Italian horror. It's got the same fuzzy look, and probably even recycles a lot of the props and sets. Laura Gemser even pops up. It's terribly inept, but to its credit, it's never boring. Nothing like seeing a Lincoln Log in a loincloth just sort of bumble around from one encounter until the next, until eventually coming to an hilarious anticlimax.
Also, that rockin' spiked-barbell whip and ripped-ass sabretooth tiger aren't in the movie. To the film's detriment.
There's really not much left to say about this at this point. Other than maybe that William Atherton isn't commended nearly as much as he should be in this. The initial scene between him and Bill Murray has him twirling around the office with a wry smile, easily holding his own against Murray. But seeing it again in the theater really does refresh everything as though it's one of your initial viewings. Even the oldest jokes in it come across funny once again. And seeing Stay Puft on the big screen is giddy fun.
