Tagline: In the Dark Ages, Magic was a weapon. Love was a mystery. Adventure was everywhere... And Dragons were real.

Plot: A ferocious firebreathing dragon terrorizes the sixth-century English countryside, but the kingdom of Urland is strangely at ease--the king has made an evil pact with the dragon, offering to sacrifice virgins twice a year in exchange for peace. The unfortunate victims are culled from the kingdom's poorer families, but when the king's own daughter is next in line,

a powerful wizard (Sir Ralph Richardson) and his youthful apprentice (Ally McBeal's Peter MacNicol) are called in to slay the dragon using their arsenal of magic and sorcery. Blending moody atmosphere, realistic set design, stunning battle sequences, and an absolutely terrifying dragon, DRAGONSLAYER stands out as the best of all the '80s dragon films.
