30 years after the "Golden Turkey Awards," I'm reviewing as many films described (by anybody)as so-bad-it's-good as possible.

Prisoners of the Lost Universe (1983)
How bad is it? It's one of the worst swords and sorcery films. Should you see it? If you're a fan of the cast, as I am. Otherwise, no.
I've always had a soft spot for Kay Lenz. In this, she plays a spunky TV news reporter, who with an electrician, gets transported into a parallel universe ruled by evil warlord John Saxon. This new world is Conan the Barbarian territory, where everyone conveniently speaks English. There's a guy in green makeup, a giant, a comic relief thief, mudmen with glowing eyes, zombies and a gillman. That should make for an enjoyable time, but it's slow, predictable, unimaginative and just thrown together.
