T.G.I.F. #59: DEATHSTALKER II: DUEL OF THE TITANS (1987)

TOTALLY GRATUITOUS AND INAPPROPRIATE FRIDAY is a spoiler-laden NSFW podcast where J Bryant and AngieBee discuss movies/shows you probably shouldn’t watch with your spouse, significant other, teenage children, parents, small children, buddies, children in general, siblings, folks you barely know, or ones with heart conditions. You’ve been warned.

In this week's episode of Totally Gratuitous and Inappropriate Friday, J Bryant and AngieBee discuss the campy cult classic DEATHSTALKER II: DUEL OF THE TITANS starring John Terlesky, Monique Gabrielle, John Lazar, and Toni Naples.

Deathstalker (John Terlesky) has a mission: to save the kingdom from the wicked grip of the immoral wizard Jerak and the evil Sultana. Together they have ruled the land by using an evil twin of the lovely Princess Evie (Monique Gabrielle). After rescuing the real Princess Evie, Deathstalker sets off to return her to her rightful place of power, but the swordsman’s battle has just begun.

Take a shot when…

…the sultry Sultana (Toni Naples) says the title of the movie. As in, Sultana literally says the title of the movie. As in, literally literally. DEATHSTALKER II. She says it. In the movie. Less than five minutes in. Includes the “II” and everything. Literally looks directly at the audience and says “I'll have my revenge... and Deathstalker too!” Not sure if that’s clever or camp, but it sure was memorable. Take that shot.

…you spot recycled footage from the first DEATHSTALKER film.

…homage, intentional or no, is paid to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

Take a double shot when…

…a direct reference to CONAN THE BARBARIAN is made.

…Pirate (Marcos Woinsky) uses some spare pocket change to dial up Jarek (John Lazar) on a magic payphone.

…homage, intentional or no, is paid to INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM.

Take a triple shot when…

…a direct reference to GOLDFINGER is made.

…Evie randomly smashes a pot.

…Deathstalker engages in a little light graverobbing.

John Terlesky points to the scene where Deathstalker is forced to wrestle the Amazonian wrestling champion Gorgo (Dee Boher of Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling fame) as the scene that really captured the tone of the entire movie. (IMDB)
