In the Middle Ages, a swashbuckling knight named Ivanhoe (Ben Pullen) is enlisted to stop a power-crazed warlock (Jeffrey Thomas) from casting spells from an ancient book that unleashes other-worldly demons to do his bidding. Along the way Ivanhoe accumulates the services of a beautiful redhead skilled in martial arts (Charlotte Comer) and a dwarf with lucky charms (Peter O'Farrell). Unfortunately, Ivanhoe is too late in stopping the warlock from bringing back the dead as hideous sword-fighting monsters. Uh oh, looks like there might be some zombie sword fightin'. ~ Buzz McClain, Rovi
This movie had really bad special effects... semi-horrible dialogue... mediocre acting... and really great 80's music. It was so bad I am dieing to see the sequels!! You just have to be in the right mood I guess. I enjoyed it (well, laughing at it anyway).
Darkest Knight I/II/III are TV show episodes that never aired. It seems that each DVD has two 45 minute episodes, because the second 45 minutes puts you into a different story. This was very apparent in Darkest Knight III.
Unfortunately the cover is all that this movie/tv show useful for. It is an attempt to be hercules/xena esque episodes but it fails miserably.
The special effects are that of a low budget television show, read season 1 of hercules, but it never had the chance to air. It was pretty sad as it was ripping from multiple different stories and trying to consolidate it into one. Most apparent were Robin Hood and Ivanhoe.
