The Secret of the Sword

"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea.

Frankenstein Conquers the World Trailer

Frankenstein Conquers the World came about after Willis O'Brien tried to get a film off the ground using his King Kong monster against Frankenstein's Monster. A script was written but never used.

I would have loved to have seen that film. I am a huge King Kong fan and would have loved to have seen O'Brien given one more chance to bring life to the character that he birthed.

The film that came out of all the backdoor dealings was Frankenstein Conquers the World aka Frankenstein vs Baragon. This is a fantastic film that many have heard about, but not many have seen because the disc has been out of print for a long time now. The film is just a lot of fun and has some great effects work by Eiji Tsuburaya, who birthed Godzilla, and would top himself in the effects department with this films sequel War of the Gargantuas.

Check out the trailer and then find a copy of the film.
