This film hasnt gone up for me and I am still digesting it, and I had to write about it after a good night sleep. This film is crazy and probably the gayest barbarian movie out there. Now... The young orphans Kutchek and Gore have been adopted by a tribe of clowns, jugglers, and entertainers. The tribe is led by the queen Canary and its wealth stems from her magical belly stone. The evil ruler Kadar desires Canary and her stone, and attacks her clan's caravan to gain possession of them. Before the clan's defeat one of the clansmen sneak away to hide the stone. Canary is locked up in Kadar's harem, Kutchek and Gore in his quarry to be trained as gladiators, and the rest of the clan is to live as outlaws in the woods.
This film is shot in Italy and is probably a spaghetti movie as we call it. It is so bad and strange that it is good. The main characters are doing a very great and stiff performance. Imagine 2 Arnolds for the price of one. If that isnt gay, I dont know what is...
I just have to give this film 9/10 pukes...
Long live the barbarian brothers and for their work of geniusness s-s-sss
