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.

Star Crystal

Directed by Lance Lindsay

Creature Film, Sci-Fi Horror - Rated R - 92 Minutes - 1986

Though it falls victim to a few slow patches, there's a lot to recommend in Star Crystal, an ambitious sci-fi adventure that makes a few wild leaps from track to track and often prompts the question, "How did we get HERE?" The spaceship model work is on par with the opening credits of MST3K, and the closing theme song comes from a more sincere universe. (Available on YouTube)
