So a ten/eleven year old me sat down in the mostly empty cinema room in the little cinema of my home town in South Wales, looking forward to watching Hawk the Slayer...
Thank you! It's been driving me mad trying to remember Farrah Fawcett in Hawk. I checked her imdb page and saw Saturn 3 and I thought maybe you were thinking of Logan's Run but I couldn't see how you would confuse either of those with Hawk.So a ten/eleven year old me sat down in the mostly empty cinema room in the little cinema of my home town in South Wales, looking forward to watching Hawk the Slayer...
After the usual commercials - all together now...dada, dada, dada, dada, dadada, dada, dada, dadaaaaaaaa, DA! - the film starts. Only it's not Hawk the Slayer, it's some sci-fi flick with the woman from Charlie's Angels.
I can't have walked into the wrong film as there's only two screens and the other is not showing anything. Huh! the projectionist has put the wrong film on! Ah well, he'll realise soon enough.
Pity, as it's quite good. And that woman from Charlie's Angels is wearing a lot less than she does on TV. A lot less! This is really good!
I then proceeded to watch the hugely enjoyable, but completely bonkers Saturn 3. And then Hawk the Slayer - learning only a few years ago that in the UK the two films were shown as a double bill.
I do remember enjoying the film, but Saturn 3 had more of an impression on me - and is one film I've seen a few times since.
The man that produced it tried for years to get a sequel made.I have very fond memories of this movie. It has all the tropes, it is absolutely cheesy but in a good way if that makes any sense. And Jack Palance as the baddie. What else do you need.
Never knew there was a sequel.
Each to their own.A 1980 fantasy film staring Jack Palance and John Terry . This film is bad and cheap looking and a positive joy to watch. I so wanted a sequel to this film .
