Ironmaster - An Umberto Lenzi Bash of Barbarism!

To know Ironmaster is to love it!  Director Umberto Lenzi takes a screenplay that not only includes work by Dardano Sacchetti, but also from uber-nut Alberto Cavallone and puts together one of my favorite Budget Barbarians of them all.  DeAngelis Brothers music, George Eastman towering over all as Vood and some nasty effects by Paolo Ricci ensure a good time if you are looking for something a bit different in your diet of smashing swordplay.

  1. IRONMASTER is everything good in the world wrapped in a Low Budget Barbarian lion skin. Seriously- I love this film and could hardly believe how solid it was when I finally got to see it. Great entertainment!

  2. I could not agree more Rod, have you seen Cavallone's MASTER OF THE WORLD? Not really similar, but made the same year by the writer of this one. Another bit of bizarre caveman fun.
