TRAILER TREASURES: WARRIOR OF THE LOST WORLD


I need to write about this 1983 film at length sometime. I had a big-box VHS tape of it that was missing the cover art, so someone had inserted an original full-page magazine advert for it into the case instead. I hope I still have it in storage somewhere, otherwise I may weep.

The film was very silly indeed, even being ridiculed on Mystery Science Theater 3000 once upon a time, but I loved it. A basic Mad Max rip-off with some added spiritual stuff and a Nazi organization enforcing a 1984 utopian society subplot, it starred Robert Ginty and the late Persis Khambatta in a loud, weird and fun science fiction action movie with a talking motorbike, explosions, 80s punk gangs and more explosions. The trailer was a hundred times better than the actual film, but I loved it anyway.
