So what does Conan the Barbarian have that Deathstalker doesn't? Well, his film had a budget, a good director calling the shots, a wonderful set designer, and an amazing soundtrack to compliment the action. What he doesnt have (and this is debatable) is the wonderfully cheesy attitude that this tacky Argentina produced shit fest has..that and Lana Clarkson and Barbi Benton.

Made during the sword and sorcery craze during the early 1980s, DEATHSTALKER is a hoot from start to finish, featuring a hilarious wooden performance from leading man Richard Hill and plenty of gratuities T&A. You've got to love the heroic "close up" shots Hill gets whenever the filmmakers want to let the audience know what a bad ass he is.
