Goatboy, twins sisters exposing themselves and zombies! Need I say more?

When I came across this film my first thought was "Ok, another Deathstalker knock off fantasy". But after watching the entire film I realized that this film did set its own pace and by pace I mean lots of BOOBS! It was the 80s and Fantasy Sci-fi films were being published by just about every production company at the time. Rating system back in the 80s was pretty much anything goes. And I mean anything! This film follows two twin sisters that have magical and physical powers given to them by a ancient wizard/god at birth to assist them on there journey. The two sisters meet a Goatboy and punch him square in the FACE! But later realize that the Goatboy and viking are both there to help them on there journey to defeat Traigon the evil wizard. Over all the movie is pretty fun to watch and gave me some good chuckles. I would recommend to anyone that enjoys low budget 80s fantasy films. I have to admit that this movie does have a lot of boobies scenes in it so that is always a plus for me.

"Filthy beast! I have no time for your disgusting desires!"

Having seen a handful of the cheapest sword & sorcery films produced in the mid- and late-80s, I was curious to see some of the bigger B-grade productions whose footage was so often stolen for smaller movies. SORCERESS is one of these, though dare I say that this ambitious adventure is less fun than all other mace & magic schlock I've seen. Intriguing at times and not entirely without fun, this movie is nevertheless bad in uncomfortable ways and clearly bears the signs of a troubled production. Aficionados of crudeness will probably get their kicks, but I was far from thrilled.

The story: Two twins imbued with great magical power (Leigh and Lynette Harris) are sought by an evil sorcerer (Roberto Ballesteros) as sacrifice to bring on a new world order.

As aforementioned, the film makes for uncomfortable viewing for a variety of reasons. Beginning with the basics, the acting is pretty bad from the start: not in a hammy way, but in a high school production kind of way, with the performers delivering every other line clumsily. The screenplay plays very loosely with violence, bringing about some relatively cruel deaths and plenty of violence towards women. A satyr sidekick played by David Millbern, costumed in a disconcerting half-mask and speaking entirely in bleats, wouldn't look out-of-place in a Rob Zombie movie. And despite clearly having a budget of some measure, the film's muddy video quality accentuates the overwhelmingly brown and yellow color palette (to be fair, this may have been cleaned up by the Blu-ray release).

Nevertheless, the scope of the movie is impressive, and the detailed sets and costumes reveal the underlying talent of director Jack Hill, who as a longtime exploitation filmmaker knows how to get the most out of his resources. The picture is also rife with a kind of unbridled creativity: the weird characters, odd dialogue, goofy fight scenes, and especially the acid-induced finale featuring a floating head and a winged lion puppet speak of a creative freedom that would soon be all the harder to come by in studio pictures. Sadly, all of this strangeness does not translate into endearing characters, much less any character development. It's even harder to care about these virtual caricatures with the amount of scene-hopping that occurs – so much that film loses all sense of time and ends up glossing over what one would think ought be important scenes (e.g. the twins setting out on their quest). Simply, it's hard to invest in the film.

This one's minor cult status indicates that there are plenty of viewers who would disagree with that last statement, but despite my love for B-cinema, I can't bring myself to love this one. Director Hill fought an uphill battle in making this movie, and sadly, the battle scars are evident. Save yourself the trouble, unless you know what you're getting into.

"Death is only death, SWINE!"

Sleazy sword-and-sorcery fantasy as only Roger Corman can produce it, "Sorceress" is good fun provided that you're not too demanding. It delivers a generous amount of amusement and fun, especially when it comes to the ridiculous dialogue, and its delivery. For the most part, it doesn't do that much to stand out from the pack of other, similar films during this time. But that all changes when it gets to the climax, a full-on assault of cheese and spectacle, complete with light shows and otherworldly creatures.

A large part of the charm, of course, lies in the casting of luscious twin sisters Leigh and Lynette Harris, playing warrior women Mira and Mara. It seems that one of them needs to be sacrificed by power-hungry villain Traigon (snarling and hammy Roberto Ballesteros). They take the fight to him, aided by such characters as the hunky young Erlick (Roberto Nelson) and the proud Valdar (Bruno Rey), a guy who wouldn't look out of place in a Lord of the Rings feature.

That's really all you need to know, so you can discover the silly pleasures of this lowbrow feature for yourself. John Carl Buechler handles the creature duties, creating a likable "goat man" sort of character as well as a variety of ape-like beasts. The music is liberally borrowed from the earlier New World productions "Battle Beyond the Stars" and "Humanoids from the Deep". The action scenes are basically decent. The Harris sisters aren't exactly very good actresses, but this viewer can't imagine many fans of this type of thing caring all that much.

The sad postscript is that this turned out to be the final directorial credit for exploitation master Jack Hill ("The Big Doll House", "Coffy", etc.), who had a falling out with Corman over the matter of the editing. In the end, Hill retained a producing credit under his name but the direction was credited to a pseudonymous "Brian Stuart" (the names of Cormans' sons).

If you like fantasy features to be on the cheesy, sleazy, low budget side, watching this will be a no-brainer.

Seven out of 10.
