4.0 out of 5 stars A rare Full Moon gem June 7, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
I find it to be utterly disappointing that this movie never received as much recognition as I feel it deserved. If any movie from Full Moon Studios was ever able to propel it to the level of a major motion picture studio, this was it.

To begin, the main antagonist and protagonist are two of the most underrated actors in Hollywood. Jeffery Combs is brilliant, as has been recognized for years by many movie critics and sci-fi/horror fans. He uses every ounce of his star power in his role as the enigmatic Doctor Mordrid. He makes the character believable.

His opposite, Kabal, is played by the delightful Brian Thompson, who seems to be destined to forever play bit parts in sci-fi movies and TV shows. Fans will recognize him from The X-Files, and also from a cult classic (but unfortunately short-lived) series from 1992 called Kindred: The Embraced. (If you have the opportunity, watch it...you won't be disappointed.) In Doctor Mordrid, he plays a twisted counterpoint to Combs, but seems almost a sympathetic villain. His motivations appear to be confused, and one almost seems to feel sorry for him at points.

Doctor Mordrid has very credible special effects, a well-developed story line, believable and likable characters...what more could one ask for?

On the whole, I found this movie to be wildly entertaining, and isn't that the point? It has a great premise (based on Dr. Strange) but rather than folding the project when they lost the rights to use the Dr Strange name, they instead forged on and completed what I feel was a watershed film in the sci-fi genre. Compared to many of the multi-million dollar turds regularly forced down our throats by Hollywood (e.g. Battlefield Earth) this low-budget masterpiece uses on time-tested story-telling elements and wonderful character archetypes, portrayed with excellent acting, to show us once again how truly entertaining a science fiction movie can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Master of the Unknown!!!!!!!! May 20, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Two begins from another dimension; two sorcerers with immeasurable powers. One has sworn to destroy the Earth; the other has vowed to protect it. Their timeless battle has crossed over from the fourth dimension and only one man will reign in the end...
Doctor Mordrid (JEFFREY COMBS) is the chosen guardian who can protect the Earth from eternal darkness; Kabal (BRIAN THOMPSON) is his vengeful enemy whose implacable wrath has escalated with time. Kabal has arrived on Earth and is planning to use his infinite powers to unleash a horde of hellish demons to devour and destroy humankind.
Bound by hate and a mystical amulet that holds the powers of life and death, the immortal wizards will meet for the last time. Their centuries-old rivalry has matured into the ancient struggle of good versus evil. Now, their battle takes on majestic proportions as Mordrid and Kabal give life to prehistoric skeletons and begin their final conflict...

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant, goofy little movie November 14, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a movie, not a book. Doctor Anton Mordrid is a wizard protecting Earth while moonlighting as an apartment building owner and lecturer on the Occult. Jeffrey Combs plays Mordrid with obvious enthusiam. Combs is a terrific actor who deserves some mainstream success. He can currently be seen on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as Weyoun. This film has good acting, a female lead who is NOT a mindless bimbo, only one scene with nudity, and decent special effects. Give it try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another vintage classic from Full Moon September 24, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I think I can state with utmost certainty that Jeffrey Combs can do no wrong. Much like Bruce Campbell, Combs is one of those actors who will always be remembered for giving 100% in every role he undertakes. And, like Campbell, he will always be known for certain characters he brought to life. One of these for Combs is Doctor Mordrid, a sorcerer from another dimension who has vowed to protect Earth. And regardless of whether you are a fan of magic or not, you’ll love seeing Combs don his blue wizard’s robes for battle.

I read somewhere Charles Band had the option back in 1992 to make a Doctor Strange movie, based on the Marvel comic character, but the option expired before production could begin. As a result, Band rewrote the script, made many changes, and wound up making this film instead. I’m glad he did, too, because I think I enjoy this one much more than I would a Doctor Strange adaptation.

DOCTOR MORDRID is shot well and looks much like many of the Full Moon films from back in that day. The sets and the production design are obviously lower budget, but they still look great. I particularly like the floating castle where Kabal was imprisoned. This looks wicked onscreen, and the set pieces that accompany it are nice as well.

The acting is pretty good, although Combs certainly steals the show. I do have to give credit to Yvette Nipar, however, for she plays a great love interest for Combs’ character. And, screen vet Brian Thompson gives his usual over-the-top performance as the psychotic Kabal.

The special effects in DOCTOR MORDRID are very good for this time period, with several magic-casting scenes that are impressive displays of technical wizardry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Mordrid March 12, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jeffrey Combs is magical as Doctor Mordrid. I loved the Mastodon fighting the Tyranosaurus Rex. Brian Thompson as Kabal was a great nemesis. The romance between Dr. Mordrid and Samantha Hunt was a good element to the movie. I liked the raven Edgar Allan as well.
