When I saw the listing in TV Guide (remember when TV Guide used to list what was on TV for the whole night?) I thought I was in for a treat--it was made in the mid-1980s and was about a computer programmer and sword-and-sorcery fantasy and an evil wizard played by Richard Moll.

Somehow it managed to be terrible in spite of all this.

When a B-movie can’t even be enjoyable with all that going for it, what hope is there?

I have nothing to add just that this looks like some Buck Rogers fun.  Hopefully a DVD of it is in the future.  I want to see it!

I bought Dungeon Master at a yard sale for $1 or $2.
I like science fiction movies . . .
But I've got to say this movie was pretty bad . . . I've seen worse but I can't remember what! lol

I was hoping it would at least be as much fun as Trolls....

Tempted to pick up a used VHS but maybe a DVD will come out sometime.  Trolls 2 has gotten a lot of wom...possibly thanks to the rifftrax that was done for it.  So...maybe there's a little hope there....

I've seen some people on this site refer to the band in the band scene as (L.A. punk/HC icons) Black Flag, but it is actually (the more straight heavy metal/shock rock) W.A.S.P., led by the acerbic Blackie Lawless-the song they're doing is 'Tormentor', which I believe is off their second album 'The Last Comand'-don't mean to sound like a know-it-all, I just love this movie and both of the aforementioned bands equally!

It's kinda weird how it's a mashup of seven directors.

Yep, couldn't finish it. OMG his freaking computer hacker glasses, the tight ass running shorts, his hot GF jealous over his female computer AI, WASP!!!

It's in that twilight region between so bad it's good and so bad it's bad.

This one definitely gets 3 drops of slime from me!  I recently picked it up on laserdisc because it deserves to be seen on a 12" hunk of plastic that needs to be flipped over halfway through.  Yes, it is awful but it's also a heck of a lot of fun.  And, you know, W.A.S.P.!

well, what can I say about this piece of... I remember seeing this as a double feature with the Beastmaster when I was 12and I thought it was great, I saw it again afew weeks ago and I could not stop laughing. I think the metal band in this movie is W.A.S.P. but I'm not quite sure.

Yes it was W.A.S.P. and the movie is not half bad.  I really love seeing the Boom mike in the to middle and top right had of the screen.  That was priceless.  This is a movie worth watching if you have some down time and do not mind bad acting, poor continuity and quality.

THIS runs this film every other week, or so it seems.  It's on right now.

Some of the FX are okay.  The models, masks, and puppets have enough detail to be convincing.  The laser blasts need work; they should have used practical lighting in addition to animation.

I saw this early this morning on AMC and I wish I'd read this review before I saw it.

I can't remember Adam Savage from Mythbusters being in this.  Wink

Ending Credits - I feel like someone (a very large someone) has been sitting on my head.

That's how I felt at the end.  Buggedout Buggedout
