Dragonslayer (1981)



Reviews and Comments

Slow going but ultimately satisfying swords and sorcery film about a dragon who terrorizes a village unless they offer continual virgin sacrifices. When a sorcerer's apprentice comes to slay the dragon, the residents are fearful and unappreciative. The special effects were amazing at the time and, to some extent, still are. Many of the dragon scenes are not just visually stunning, however, but genuinely terrifying.
