“Tales of an Ancient Empire” Trailer!

Two of the most influential swords-and-sorcery films when I was growing up were Hawk the Slayer and The Sword and the Sorcerer. They were perfect fodder for my D&D-soaked brain, and Cinemax and HBO showed them with enough frequency that I can still recite parts of them by memory today. And more than a few of my campaigns had a River Shale, too. Last year, I mentioned that sequels were in the works for both films, and now we’ve got an honest-to-goodness trailer for Tales of an Ancient Empire, the long-awaited sequel to The Sword and the Sorcerer!

Kevin Sorbo! Vampires! Decapitations! This could suck (but as vampire-swords-and-sorcery movies go, could it even approach the awfulness of Bloodrayne II?), but it might be a fun ride. Time shall tell.

  1. Thanks, David. I embedded the YouTube version rather than the Vimeo.

    But b-grade awful fantasy films are half the fun of the genre. It might not be Lord of the Rings, but hopefully it won't be The Barbarians, either…

  2. Conan the Destroyer was the film I saw over and over again. Although I have to admit I can't remember much of it anymore. I think I'd find the special effects not so special anymore. Second runner up would be Krull. Anyone else?
