10 Great Swords and Sorcery Movies For Conan Fans

During the 80s, the Sword and Sorcery genre intrigued the audiences. With the success of the movie, Conan-The Barbarian, the craze for this genre was heightened further. Indeed, this was a classic and contained the elements of a mass entertainer. There was action, magic, drama, and of course a muscular Arnold Schwarzenegger wielding a powerful sword. This not only catapulted him to the forefront of Hollywood but also sent the producers in frenzy about making more such movies.

All through the 80s, many such sword and magic movies hit the theatres. The general theme in all these movies remained the same. The muscular hero was to save a damsel in distress or seek revenge. Kingdoms would be at stake, mysterious wizards and magic would make the story mystifying, and eventually, there would be a satisfying conclusion. Not all of these movies set the cash bells jingling but some did make their way into being enlisted as cult classics. Here we have put together some of these sword and magic movies from the 80s that will certainly appeal to those who have appreciated this genre. So sit tight and enjoy the magical ride
