Featured Subgenre

Sword and Sorcery

With the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons role-playing games in the '80s came a slew of films revolving around heroes with swords, saving damsels from dastardly dragons and evil wizards. While long a popular form for "B"-films, it wasn't until the sudden acceleration of special effects in the post-Star Wars world that the magic and monsters that make up the genre were rendered possible.

Flesh + Blood

Directed by Paul Verhoeven

Costume Adventure - Rated R - 126 Minutes - 1985

Rutger Hauer stars as Martin, the leader of a band of mercenaries who are seeking revenge on their former commander for selling them out after a previous conquest. Martin acquires a religious talisman, which he uses to garner a small following, as well as Agnes (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who was to be married to the son of their nemesis. It plays like a twisted Robin Hood story, packed with blood, guts, nudity, and plague. (Available on Tubi TV and Pluto TV)
