Trivia

The role of the Bear Creature was actually played by a costume designer named Lucas Gunn. He worked on several aspects of the costumes used in the movie, but this was his very first creature design, as such he wanted to play the extra role of the creature (a very short role to be sure). After the movie released the part in which the bear creatures head is toyed with by the twins, became a fan favorite spawning several common references in internet memes etc. See more »

Sword and Sandals.
16 November 1998 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is terrible, but almost so bad it's good. I've seen a lot of bad movies like this but this one at least knew to be silly. Most of these sword and sandal pictures take themselves too seriously. This movie is just plain silly. If you like the ones that are so bad that they end up becoming cult movies, then you might like this one.
