Edgar Rice Burroughs tale "The Land That Time Forgot" starring the great Doug McClure. This is a movie that was very formative to both of us as kids and we were delighted to see how well it held up. We follow this up with the direct sequel "The People That Time Forgot", also based on the writings of Mr. Burroughs and starring the son of The Duke himself, Patrick "Sinbad" Wayne. Although still enjoyable if for no other reason than nostalgia, it is by far the lesser of the two flicks. Crawl into the cave, pull up a rock and join us as we explore a couple of movies that molded us into the warped individuals we are today.

Welcome brave warriors, it's time to draw your broadswords and strap on your Birkenstocks as episode 49 of FFTC strides majestically on to the savage wasteland known as the internet! In this edition we delve into the corpulent genre of the Sword and Sandal epic. With dozens, nay, hundreds of films of this ilk available to us, we settled on 1983's Conquest by the ever nap-inducing Lucio Fulci. Lucio made some astounding films in his prolific career and this is most definitely not one of them. A ponderous romp through the smoke strewn corners of his back yard, this film includes dismal dialogue, a meandering storyline and, through some sort of witchery, he even managed to make copious nudity bland and uninteresting. Our second feature however, 1982's Sorceress directed by the mighty Jack Hill and produced by low budget wizard Roger "Gandalf" Corman is an ambitious low budget effort. This film too features ample T&A and side-splitting fight choreography but it does actually have a story to tell and is as plucky as it's two twin blonde leads! Lots of nice and cheesy old school FX from John Carl Buechler top off a fine party night camp fest. Huzzah!
