What is best in life? “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.”
Truer words have never been spoken by a sadistic barbarian overlord, and they truly shaped Conan and millions of his fans. When this rampaging epic of swords and squat thrusts was unleashed in May of 1982, the declining state of post-‘70s masculinity was suddenly corrected.
Arnold Schwarzenneger exploded into stardom in a hail of broken bones, dark wizardry, and superhuman combat. Aided by a fearless huntress and one of his ol’ Mongol buddies, Conan will face off against the nefarious Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones) and battle against the enslavement of mankind. One of the most sweat-powered films you’ll ever see, complete with the flat-out craziest giant snake in movie history.
