Summary: Imagine if the epic tale of "Saint George and the Dragon" was actually better suited to the title "Saint Whiny Entitled Peeper and the Stiff Two-headed Prop Dragon". Now you have an idea of what this movie is.

History: When the evil sorcerer Lodac witnessed his little sister getting killed for her crimes, he vowed to make the kingdom pay. To do this, he kidnapped the princess and promised the king that she would be dragon-fodder in seven days. Those who would dare rescue her would face seven deadly curses, including a giant ogre and a shapeshifting hag. But fear not, because the princess' rescuer is...a pouty young apprentice who stole a magic sword and stuff from his mother. The princess is surely doomed.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: The ogre is stabbed in the heart after being rendered dizzy by our hero’s horse, the hag presumably gets turned in to the authorities, and the dragon is stabbed in the heart as well. Lodac is killed via sorceress-turned panther. For extra points, that was our hero's adoptive mother.

Powers/Abilities: The hag can transform into a beautiful maiden to fool victims, while the dragon can breathe fire from both heads.

Weakness: Anything conventional, though enchanted weapons do the work best.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-The hag is the worst out of the bunch ironically due to being plain hideous to look at. Everyone else is kind of a joke. The ogre is clearly a guy in a bad latex mask making half-hearted 'grrr' sounds, while the dragon can barely even move its heads. It sure does bleed a lot, though.

Trivia: -That hag was played by Maila Nurmi, who's known for playing the infinitely sexier horror host Vampira...and the lady zombie from "Plan 9 from Outer Space".

-Lodac was played by Basil Rathbone, who was known for playing Sherlock Holmes in the 30s-40s, as well as Shakespearian stage roles in the United Kingdom.

Glamor failure at its finest.
Unrivaled until the gun came into the picture. Then, we split the atom.

Before Ogres had layers, they had really bad masks.

Well, at least he looks menacing now.
