What’s this grindhouse movie about? A witch sends the warrior, Deathstalker, on a quest to find a chalice, an amulet, and a sword, two of which are held by the wicked sorcerer Munkar, played by Bernard Erhard. Deathstalker finds the sword easily and sets out to Munkar’s castle.
On his journey, Deathstalker meets a warrior named Ogrhis (Richard Brooker) who informs him of a tournament. Munkar has invited warriors to participate in contests until only one is left standing. And what does the winner get? Munkar’s kingdom. Along the way to the tournament, the pair meet Kaira, a female warrior (Lana Clarkson) who agrees to accompany them on their journey.
Arriving at Munkar’s castle, Deathstalker and the other warriors are invited to get drunk and rape Munkar’s harem slaves, including Princess Codille (Barbi Benton). Deathstalker isn’t to excited about the proposition and instead rescues Princess Codille. But, only briefly as Munkar takes her back.
The tournament continues for several days and Deathstalker searches for the other two artifacts at night. By then, almost all the other contestants have killed each other, and Deathstalker faces Munkar for the battle that will truly test their skills.
The film is noteworthy for launching the career of Lana Clarkson. Clarkson went on to work with executive producer Roger Corman on the films Barbarian Queen and Barbarian Queen II: The Empress Strikes Back. She also guest starred in an episode of the television show Black Scorpion.
