ATTN: IF YOU ARE ONE OF MY FRIENDS FROM THE "REAL" WORLD, THEN PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE TO READ THIS POST. I'VE WARNED YOU.
It's October and with it comes a huge list of epic greatness. In case you haven't read the intro to this thing, I'll be counting down 31 of the greatest Charles Band movies. Keep your internet dials tuned to Mr. Gable's Reality DAILY for new and exciting Charles Band goodness. I began this countdown with TEN Charles Band movies that I have yet to see. Now I present to you, the loyal Reality fans, 11 films that personally learned the art of Kick Ass! from Charles Band. Let's do this thing...
The Greatest Bad Movies Charles Band Has Ever Produced #17
Before I get started, I'd like to explain that little warning up there. My friends and I get together from time to time and we watch bad movies. We call them...Bad Movie Nights. We've watched some pretty terrible movies in our time but this would be one of the first (far before I became involved with BMN), or possibly the very first movie to ever get banned from Bad Movie Night for being so awful. Now doesn't that alone pique your interest? If the fact that a group of people whose soul purpose is to live for bad movies can't even stand The Dungeonmaster doesn't make you want to watch it...then perhaps this will...
Oh yeah, that's Richard Moll. That dude from Night Court. I prefer to remember him in House. Or this movie...maybe it's Spiders 2. Who cares, this guy is awesome! And he plays some kind of evil galactic trans-dimensional overlord or something. I think they call him a witch though. I don't exactly remember, it's been awhile.
What Dungeonmaster is exactly...is a mashup of several movies pieced together. It's kind of an anthology except the main character stars in every piece. I believe each part is written and directed by a different person. Including Charles Band! So what happens is this dude and his girlfriend are drug into a pit by Richard Moll. He wants to test this guy so he suits him up with full on NES armor and send him into several different dimensions full of those things that you saw in the trailer. I believe he has to survive or defeat the creatures to get his lady back.
My friends aren't exactly Charles Band lovers so it's possible...and highly probable...that's why they didn't like this movie. I liked it. It was pretty insane and so full of cheese. And for the extremely HIGH cheese factor, so high you'll gain weight watching this movie, I give The Dungeonmaster the #17 spot on the all time greatest Charles Band movies!
