What I’m Watching: Conquest (1983, dir. Lucio Fulci)

Watching Italian fantasy movie Conquest by Lucio Fulci (1983). It’s got a certain dreamlike appeal most Conan rip-offs don’t have. It’s also got dogmen who blow some kind of cocaine up each other’s snouts. Can’t decide whether it’s an oneiric masterpiece or a heap of very entertaining poo.

It certainly knows how to use fog machines and soft focus in order to hide a low budget. It totally subverts Campbell’s hero’s journey archetype too, which is nice.

Anyway, like most stuff I watch it’s free on Amazon Prime.
