Reb Brown and Corinne Cléry in YOR HUNTER OF THE FUTURE; directed by Antonio Margheritii

This PEP/Sci-Fi hybrid is universally regarded as junk. It is silly, crappy direct to home video stuff (even if it was actually released in theatres) but it's still entertaining in "it's so bad it's good" way. Reb couldn't act but he had a great physique/built straight out of Boris Vallejo painting. And Corinne, who was a Bond girl and starred in the controversial HISTOIRE D'O, gave the film a great 1970s Euro chic babe appeal. As bad as YOR is it still tops IMMORTALS in one way: it was actually shot outside, in location, with real burning wood, etc. Arf.

YOR was apparently a mini-series in Italy and there's a reportedly 4 hour version out there. Yes, 4 HOURS of YOR! Mind boggling if it's true.
