I’ve been reading a bit about a couple of genre films making major box office waves in Europe without being able to turn up much information about them until now. The first is a sci-fi film out of Germany, the second is a time-spanning Russian fantasy epic called Nightwatch and thanks to one of our readers we’ve now got a website and trailer to share. Thanks Gene! It aint Tarkovsky, that’s for sure, but if you’re the sort who’s still got a soft spot for Krull, Beastmaster and those old school low budget fantasy flicks this looks as though it could be a major guilty pleasure. Check the website here and the trailer here.

stop talking about krull anaway
Krull and beastmaster were and still are legandary. But Night Watch is a masterpiece. With a budget of 4 million they amazed the world with its special f/x and look. It grossed more than LOTR3 and the amount of Russians that saw it in the theatre equals the amount of Russians living in Russia. – FACT
Quentin tarantino was so amazed by the film that he travelled over to shake the mans hand.
The film has excellent visuals and its got a nice amount of blood.
This movie looks great. If only they had that five-pointed star blade throwing thingy from Krull in it. Then it would be perfect.
I’v seen this movie dudes… this is good one and russin one! :P allthought you wont get much untill you read the book
I don’t know why are you comparing it to Krull. It has much more of a horror twist to it. Also it has some great special effects, for a fraction what it would be in Hollywood. And the movie is already available in America.
Krull owned my teenaged ass back in the day. I love that film!
Hey, I own DeathStalker 2. I have seen all of them, but #2 is the best… actually it’s a bad film, but somehow I love its campiness.
Back to Nightwatch, in the begging I thought, ouch, a bad Lord of the Rings rip off. Until the battle ‘paused’. And then the setting switched. Wow, can’t wait for that film
I own Krull, Beastmaster(the movie) and a few other 80s low budget fantasy flicks (Red Sonia? Knights?). Not sure if its bragging rights, but there it is.
Looks hokey though. Not really sure what to think of it. Its not Krull, thats for sure.
