The Blade Master (1984)

aka Cave Dwellers, aka Ator: The Blade Master

How bad is it? It's one of the worst Conan the Barbarian knock-offs.
Should you see it? Yeah, and the MST3K version actually points out some things I missed.

This is a sequel to "Ator, the Fighting Eagle" which gets recapped early in this film. The original, though bad, was better than this, and the sort-of third in the series was better made. Ator must storm a castle to wrest control of a super weapon from the Snake God, with the assistance of a wizard's daughter. There's bad dialog and worse acting (especially by Lisa Foster) and some anachronisms (tire tracks and sunglasses). The best parts involve a truly terrible giant snake puppet and an attack by hang glider.
