It has all the usual cliches (like the attack on Dar's village which is a scene that's found in almost every one of these) and production values only slightly above the usual Italian contributions.
The film starts as a straight-up Period Horror (Coscarelli's knack for the genre is as obvious here as it was in his previous film) as an evil priest, Mayak, and his coven of witches use dark magic to steal the unborn child of the Queen (and King) from her belly and transfer it to the womb of a cow.

A topless Tanya Roberts helped as well You'll just have to watch the movie to see that scene...I'd never seen John Amos in anything other than the TV show Good Times, so I was surprised to see him here, and he's real personable and likeable too.
