DEATHSTALKER IV: MATCH OF TITANS"I could be so much more fun to you alive than dead, if you'd just untie these straps" - Deathstalker
After suffering through "Deathstalker III" with its non-entertainment value and the schmuck they turned the title character into, the one thing I wanted most in the world (of B-movies that is) was for the original Deathsatlker Rick Hill to return and portray the character he helped created in the lovable original B-movie romp. The B-movie gods must have listened as "Deathstalker IV: Match of Titans" showed the return of Hill in the title role. Holy fucking shit, that means this is the going to be the best "Deathstalker" sequel ever... right? Who would have guess that the overall product would be even worse than that sequel that calls itself "Deathstalker III: The Warriors from Hell".
The plot is essentially a tack-off of the original film (which rip-offed "Enter the Dragon") with an evil sorceress (a women this time!) holding a tournament for all the best fighters in the nation to attend. Of course Deathstalker must oblige to uphold his selfish duty of being the best fighter in the land. The sorceress has her own plans and uses the tournament as a means to kill all the fighters, turning them into stone warriors to do her own bidding.

|Stock footage alert!|
|The make-up job on these stone warriors is impeccable!|
