Ator, l'Invincibile (1982, ITA) C-96m. *D: David Hills (=Joe D'Amato). Starring Miles O'Keeffe, Sabrina Siani, Ritza Brown, Edmund Purdom, Laura Gemser. Pretty ridiculous CONAN rip-off features incompetent O'Keeffe in a prehistoric setting as a prince destined for greatness, who must defeat evil spider sect. Must be seen to be believed. Score by Carlo Maria Cordio is rousing but belongs into another genre (the song during the closing credits is plagiarized from the FOR YOUR EYES ONLY title song!). Michele Soavi allegedly collaborated on the script with Joe D'Amato, who also photographed (as Federico Slonisco). Followed by three sequels! Also known as ATOR, THE FIGHTING EAGLE.
