JoBlo: THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER: a look back from 1982: The Greatest Geek Year Ever!

I think it’s generally accepted nowadays that 1982 was perhaps the greatest year for geek cinema that ever was. Just think about all of the classics that came out: STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN, BLADE RUNNER, E.T: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, John Carpenter’s THE THING, CONAN THE BARBARIAN, and many, many more. Oddly, there’s never been a great in-depth examination of this year, until now with the legendary sci-fi chronicler Mark A. Altman (Sci-Fi Universe, Nobody Does it Better: The Complete, Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of James Bond), Roger Lay, Jr. Tom Vitale, and host Scott Mantz unveiling a feature-length doc – 1982: THE GREATEST GEEK YEAR EVER!

The project, which is currently being funded through Kickstarter, will take a deep dive into the makings of all of those classics, and even some more obscure favorites, such as the infamous MEGAFORCE and another hidden gem from that year, Albert Pyun’s THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER.

Now, this movie is interesting. A low-budget CONAN THE BARBARIAN clone, this movie came out just a few weeks before that and grossed an amazing $39 million and only about $500k short of what Conan did. Insane, right? Yet, the film is often forgotten these days, so the good folks behind the project have sent us this exclusive clip digging into the history behind the film. Check it out!
