Mill Creek is set to continue their current trend of fairly surprising Blu-ray release with a release of Yor, the Hunter from the Future scheduled for January 16th, just in time to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary.
Yor is based off a comic from Argentina and was directed by one of the Italian legends in Antonio Margheriti. The film was widely panned for it’s cheesiness but it has become bit of a cult movie and rightfully so. It’s silly fun and a must watch with a group of friends. Margheriti even described it as a party film and often said he would look for it in movie guides that rated bombs. Some times you just have to have fun with movies and you can certainly do that with Yor.
Below I’ve included not on the amazing trailer for the film, but a lyric video of the film’s theme song. If you haven’t seen the movie and thus haven’t heard the theme song I highly recommend you give it a listen now.
“It is before the dawn of time. Strange, savage beasts roam the earth, foraging for human flesh. Fierce tribesmen prey on the weak and innocent. Mystic sacrifices appease the gods. Yor (Reb Brown, Space Mutiny) is the mightiest warrior of his era. But his own past and true identity are shrouded in the mists of time. He knows he doesn’t belong in this world, but his only clues to the fleeting memories of his past are the gold medallion around his neck and the beautiful priestess held prisoner in a forbidden city. Armed to the teeth, Yor sets off on a quest, ready to blast away all manner of terrifying creatures along the way.”
