Krull (1983)

Krull Quote: “Rocks in our pockets and gravestones above our heads is all we’ll get from this journey.” – Rhun

Can you really call yourself a retro movies podcast without reviewing the epic ’80s film flop that refuses to die? At long last, Shat The Movies is digging its glaive into “Krull.”

On paper, this movie should have been the next “Star Wars.” It has a massive budget, plush set design, a rousing James Horner musical score, freakin’ lasers, a handsome lead, a strong princess, a wise mentor, mystical powers, an impenetrable stronghold, galactic consequences, a legendary weapon, and Liam Neeson. But “Krull” showed just how hard it is to bring fantasy concepts to the silver screen.

In this episode, the Shat Crew discusses how the “Krull” movie posters misled Big D, how less is more when it comes to special effects, why thieves and brawlers are so eager to join perilous quests, why geography matters in movies, and whether “Krull” delivered the worst action scenes in Shat The Movies history.”

Plot Summary: “Krull” On the planet of Krull, an evil creature called the Beast decimates the world’s army and kidnaps the lovely Princess Lyssa (Lysette Anthony), who is destined to become queen. Her brave beau, Prince Colwyn (Ken Marshall), leads a motley band of warriors, including Ergo (David Battley) and Kegan (Liam Neeson), to rescue his beloved. However, before he can face the Beast, Colwyn must locate a mystical weapon known as the Glaive, which he can use to slay the hideous villain.
