Thanks to everyone who mailed in suggestions for future Dino Drac After Dark videos. Got some great ones!
Tonight’s was suggested by Brew Berry. Get a load of Krull, from 1983:
It’s a wacky sci-fi movie that I’ve still yet to see. Admittedly, whenever I bring up Krull, people tell me not to bother. Still, it looks like an amazing cheesefest and I don’t know if it has to be good to be good, if that makes sense.
Actually, I have tremendous nostalgia for Krull despite never having seen it, all thanks to its old videocassette:
I used to stare at that box every time we went to our neighborhood’s first video store, and it emotionally crippled me. That store’s horror/sci-fi section was suspiciously right next to to its rack of Disney movies, so there was no avoiding those creepy boxes.
For me, the Krull box was right up there with the Ghoulies box. Scared me to pieces, yet I was so weirdly enamored with it. No movie can live up to that art, but I hope Krull comes close.
PS: If you missed it, Dino Drac’s March Funpack is now on sale!
