Storyline

A barbarian named Kull unexpectedly becomes a king after an old king (whom Kull has just killed in a battle) gives his crown to him. But direct heirs of a killed king, trying to topple Kull and regain the throne, bring an old witch-queen Akivasha back to life. Their plan backfires, however, as Akivasha is going to allow their lords - demons - to rule the kingdom. The only thing that can stop her now is a breath of the god Volka.

Trivia

In the Finnish translations of the Kull stories, the character name 'Kull' was changed into 'Kall' to avoid unintentional comic elements (there is a Finnish word meaning 'penis' that resembles 'kull' quite a bit). This, however, was not done with this movie, adding its part to the unintentional comedy. See more »

Goofs

When Juba rips off Zareta's accessories, the right shoulder strap of her dress falls down. It is back up in the next shot, then down again later. See more »

Quotes

Tu: You see, m'lord, every noble has brought the prize of his house. Fanara, from the House of Balin. As pure as virgin snow.
Kull: [Kull looks closely at her] We've met.
[walks away]
Kull: She's not that pure.
Tu: Shh.

User Reviews

Fun to watch because it doesn't take itself too seriously...
15 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Unlike the "Conan" movies of the 1980's which were MEANT to be taken seriously at every turn and were UNINTENTIONALLY funny, "Kull" never attempts to be more than what it is: an action film with a healthy dose of humor, nice effects and nicely choreographed action sequences.

This isn't "King Lear" and it isn't meant to be. Just sit back and have some fun.
