Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn

Tagged: Film

Film (1983). Albert Band International. Directed and coproduced by Charles Band. Written by coproducer Alan J Adler. Cast includes Jeffrey Byron, Mike Preston and Tim Thomerson. 83 minutes. 3-D. Colour.

More Science Fantasy than sf, this 3-D exploitation movie, set in a tribalized future wasteland, is notable for the absence of metalstorms and the fact that the totalitarian wizard Jared-Syn is not destroyed. The hero saves his girl – after post-Mad Max fights with punk nomads and Cyborgs – from the lifeforce-absorbing wizard who exits via another Dimension. Aimlessly routine, the film shows little of the comic-book energy that characterizes some later Band productions. [PN]
