Armed with magic bow and arrow, young Ilias (Andrea Ochipinti) leaves hisidyllic home to wander the countryside and find his destiny - much to the dismay of Ocron (Sabrina Siani) a masked yet topless evil goddess who has had a vision that she will be killed by an arrow of his magic bow ... so she decides to have the guy killed by her wolf-like minions before he can do any damage. Ocron's wolfmen are soon about to kill the lad too, when he's saved by loner Mace (Jorge Rivero), a man who claims he has no friends but is friends with all animals. And for a man he needs no friends, he is pretty friendly, too, asking Ilias to join him on his journey to nowhere-in-particular, sharing his food with him and saving his life every now and again.

Eventually, Ilias learns that Ocron isafter his life - but since he's vastly outnumbered by her men and she is no concern of him to begin with, he decides to return home rahter than take her head-on - a decision Mace only supports. But once Ilias is gone, Mace is captured by Ocron's men, and it's only thanks to Ilias' timely return that he is saved.

For the finale, Mace and Ilias decide it's time to put an end to Ocron's shenanigans, and they go against her palace - but get seperated and Ilias even gets decapitated ... but somehow, Mace gets his hands on Ilias' bow and uses it to eliminate all of Ocron's wolfmen and finally her as well.


Pretty much your typical barbarian flick, with little variations on the basic plot and virtually no surprises, with the only exception maybe being the decapitation of one of the heroes. The film was obviously made on the cheap, which is easily noticeable in the costumes, wigs, lack of sets and especially the poorly made wolf-masks of Ocron's henchmen, but at least director Lucio Fulci has the good sense to drown almost all of the film in mist so the budgetary constraints are not too clearly visible. And speaking of Fulci - one can't help noticing that the killings in this film are pretty gory, very much in style with Fulci's gore flicks he seemed to direct a dime a dozen in the early 1980's. That said though, Conquest is not one of Fulci's better films.

In all, Conquest is certainly not the worst barbarian flick ever - but that's not a good enough reason to watch it.
