Name That Trauma :: Reader Gerard on a Disemboweled Damsel

Hey guys,

I’ve seen you help with some obscure movies, so I’d love to see if you remember this:

I saw a part of a film when I was very young, in the mid-‘80s maybe, and still to this day I have no idea what it was!

As far as I can remember there was some sort of hero – HE-MAN/BEASTMASTER/CONAN-looking guy, and a writhing captive girl, and they were trapped in a cave or dungeon. And as far as I can remember the bad guy thing holding them captive was a skinless body or a man made out of blood and guts (not unlike the really bloody uncle Frank from HELLRAISER perhaps) and he had like, glowing claws/fingernails – they glowed yellow first, and the captive girl started to sorta writhe in pain, then they glowed blue – and he sort of ripped the girls guts out… I think maybe like telekinetically, straight into his hand.

Now presumably at the point, I ran away from the T.V. terrified, I can’t have been older than 5 or 6 so its definitely the ‘80s… I’ve kinda always thought it was a more adult orientated sorta KRULL BEASTMASTER movie, but, well I thought I’d have seen it again by now.

Any ideas PLEASE?



UNK SEZ:: I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that you are talkin’ bout THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER!!!

    I think this has got to be the sword and the sorcerer!

    I love this movie!


    We made this game out of it back in the day…

    Crazy, this solved my trauma without even having to ask. The demon coming out of a pit covered in blood and the eyes on the wall have tap danced in my nightmares for the last thirty years. I fricking love this site!
