At the height of the Sword & Sorcery craze, Maestro Of Gore Lucio Fulci (ZOMBIE) attacked the genre like no filmmaker had ever done before. Jorge Rivero (RIO LOBO), Andrea Occhipinti (NEW YORK RIPPER) and the luscious Sabrina Sellers (CANNIBALS) star in this surreal epic of brain-bashing barbarians and breast-baring maidens, filled with eye-popping cinematography, jaw-dropping violence and a pounding score by Claudio Simonetti of Goblin.

So, this topless sorceress lady Ocran (Sabrina Siani; Aenigma, White Cannibal Queen) in a metal mask and her monkey-mask-wearing amazons summon a platoon of werewolf-monkey-wookie men to ravage a small tribe of aborigines. To show that they mean business, these furry mongoloids rip a naked woman in half from the legs up and present her severed head to their naked leader, who then unceremoniously eats the brains right out of it before fornicating with a python...I think...it's not very clear. Within just 10 minutes of running time it's apparent that the gore, completely pointless nudity and nonsense are set to an "11" in this exploitative gorefest.
Armed with his magical bow that shoots six magical arrows at once and penetrates stone, our hero Ilias is charged with ridding the land of evil...I think...it's not very clear. That's about all the plot we're handed. Like any adventure movie, he finds an ally during his "quest." Along the way, he meets Mace (Jorge Rivero; Werewolf). Mace fights some wookie-werewolves with stone nunchucks and some mean WWE moves. Mace always seems to save Ilias' ass during their frequent and regrettably lame confrontations with Ocran's forces. In fact, Ilias always seems to get his ass kicked unless he's firing arrows at a distance. Wuss!
Throughout the film Ocran continues to sick her wookie-werewolves on Ilias and Mace, she periodically rubs snakes all over her body while dreaming about a weirdly faceless Ilias killing her, and she promises her body to some powerful warrior (Zora) if he can kill Ilias. I have no clue why Zora and Ocran are in cahoots...or even where, who or what Zora is...it's really not very clear! We also encounter Mace's evil doppelganger, some weird web-covered stone people, acrobatic troglodytes and some random swamp zombies--being that this is a Lucio Fulci movie, I guess that had to happen. For whatever reason, it seems that Mace does just about all the fighting as if this was his quest...or is it...it's really not clear!
What's really random about this movie is that Ilias is killed, beheaded, and his body burned..but "his soul lives"...W T F? We only know because Ocran tells us. So Ilias, speaking from the spirit world, tells Mace to smear his ashes all over his face to anoint himself with Ilias' power. But Ilias was a wuss, remember. He really just should have said "Yo, Mace, enjoy the magical bow, bro." Mace was always fighting his battles for him and saving his hide anyway. So he's really absorbing Ilias' worthlessness as a warrior. Right? That's how I see it anyway.
Oh, right, and for whatever W T F reason everyone has the ability to teleport when it suits them. Oh, and Mace shoots an arrow through a mountain to hit Ocran in the face. Oh, and Ocran has a face like a zombie from Planet of the Apes under that mask. Oh, and...well, it's official. Everything about this movie is stupid.
They really went for it with the combat choreography, even though the fights were destitute. A lot of difficult moves are hilariously executed with God-awful technique in slow-motion. The gore was fun, though presented inconsistently. My favorite gore was when Ilias was poisoned and covered in pus-looking abscesses.
If you're in the mood to be cynical and tear something apart to make yourself feel better, then this is the film for you!
Nostalgia is a powerful force for me. Also, I like things that do not follow the "mold" so-to-speak. If Conquest stands out in anything, it doesn't follow expected story traits. Also, there is extreme gore and nudity.
In finality, there isn't much in the way of extras, the transfer is reasonable but not excellent, the plot is weak & acting is non-existent...but...it's different, weird and exotic.
The DVD quality quality is very good, but the film is so heavy on misty atmosphere at times that it may annoy some people because some may think it interferes with the picture.
