Name That Trauma:: Rob M. on a 3-D Jewel Thief

June 27th, 2017 by unkle lancifer · 4 Comments

It’s an early 80’s film (between 1981-1984). The film is essentially a one man show. I think it was originally in 3D. It’s a low budget sci-fi flick. The protagonist is a thief of sorts. He’s trying to steal a gem or gems from a church that has large number of booby traps. The entire movie is him navigating a series of traps to reach the alter where the jewel[s] are. I think he ultimately gets killed in the end. I’ve been searching for the title to this flick for a long time.

UNK SEZ: Hey, Rob! Not every piece of the puzzle fits perfectly but so much of what you described sounds like THE TREASURE OF THE FOUR CROWNS from 1983. I wrote a review about the movie way back HERE, you can watch a trailer HERE and check out the incredible head-spinning scene below! Let us know if we caught the appropriate culprit!

    My only other guess would be METALSTORM: THE DESTRUCTION OF JARED-SYN which is Sci-Fi, 3-D and involves crystals. But the booby trapped church makes me think it must be TOTFC.
