This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

A firm favourite on video and a regular fixture on bank holiday TV during the eighties, we’re excited to bring back the awesome fantasy Krull.

“Excalibur meets Stars Wars”


Journey into a mystical time and place that belongs to neither the past nor the present, where extraordinary creatures of myth work their incredible magic, ruled by the horrific, omnipotent ‘Beast’. This is the planet of Krull! Prince Colwyn (Ken Marshall) sets out to rescue his young bride, Princess Lyssa (Lysette Anthony), who is being held captive by the Beast, but slayers and aliens oppose his every turn. Colwyn must first reach a faraway cavern to recover the legendary Glaive, a flying blade capable of phenomenal powers. Featuring early screen appearances from Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane, Krull is a visual treat thanks to David Cronenberg’s regular cinematographer Peter Suschitzky (who also lensed The Empire Strikes Back).
