    How does one rate a film like this?

    It is too cool and too good to be so-bad-that-it-is-good.

    It is too violent and sexy to be a children film but too silly to be taken seriously.

    It is too cheesy to work as an art house film but way to strange and poetic to be your standard sword and sorcery genre film.

    It has moments of pure poetic beauty and moments of utter silliness and B (or even C) film…

    Better than I expected it to be (such a low rating here). Plenty of boobs and well done gore. Cinetamography is a bit off, because of the overuse of fog machines and overall dark scenes. Just expect a campyt movie, and you won't be disappointed too much.

    A savage wasteland of fantasy.
    Another great one from Lucio Fulci.

    Even if you had all the acid in the world it'd be impossible to remake this movie.

    Exactly what you'd expect from a Lucio Fulci-directed Swords and Sandals flick.

    No plot, lots of atmosphere, even more gore and...well, that's about it. I obviously dug it but I'm a sucker for shit like this to begin with.

    Lucio Fulci made some weird and entertaining movies during his 30+ year-long career. Of course, he made some clunkers too. Conquest, arguably a member of the latter category, is a barbarian/sci-fi hybrid that left this viewer wanting with regard to both genres.

    This movie does have enough elements to theoretically make for one heck of a ride; You've got monsters, a barbarian hero, mystical weapons, decapitations, a snake-priestess and plenty of slimy goop. For whatever reason though, whether it's the…

    In most senses, Lucio Fulci’s Conquest, a sword and sandal cheapie intended to cash in on Conan the Barbarian, is a lousy adventure movie. The plot is practically nonexistent, consisting of a series of violent happenings with little sense of progression or escalation. The characterization is similarly lacking. The heroes are a pair of generic he-men on a quest that’s barely explained, and the villainess, a nude woman with a gold mask, a pet snake and an army of bearmen…

    I ordered this on Amazon and was totally prepared for it to become one of my favorite movies of all time. It's not. It is gloriously dumb, inexplicable, and atmospheric Fulci, though, and that's enough.

    A caveman with stone nun-chucks and pretty boy with a laser bow join forces to defeat an evil naked witch and her throngs of dog-men.

    At least I think that was the plot, honestly it was hard to tell what was going on at all through the endless fog and smoke billowing into every shot. Every scene is either enveloped in a cloud or shot at night and often it's both. This might not have been an issue if not…
