It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good sword and sandals flick from The Asylum, and Dragon Crusaders delivers the goods. Asylum Hard Knocks alumni Mark Atkins (Battle of Los Angeles, Princess Of Mars) pulls out all the stops available for a two week shoot and creates an interesting movie both on the page and on the screen. A group of knights stumble onto a village being attacked by pirates and decide to help out (the villagers, not the pirates). After boarding the pirate’s yacht they’re accidentally cursed by a witch. One by one they begin to turn into gargoyle-like flying creatures. In order to break the spell they must defeat the evil wizard and his dragons.
