Dragonslayer

Buy Tickets

(1981) dir Matthew Robins w/Peter MacNicol, Caitlin Clarke, Ralph Richardson [109 min; 35mm]
DRAGONSLAYER is a cult classic which no doubt scarred a generation of pre-teens who thought they were going to see a goodnatured, Disney fantasy flick… Not so much… Filmed in Wales and steeped in the post-Roman, pre-Christian history of Great Britain, DRAGONSLAYER presents a world where magic and monsters are frighteningly real. MacNicol plays a magician’s apprentice who must become a hero to defeat an aging, embittered dragon and release the country from a grip of dread.

35mm print courtesy of the American Genre Film Archive and Ant Timpson.
