UCM.ONE releases the film “Wizards of the Lost Kingdom” (also known as “The Magic Ring” in Germany) in HD on the label M-Square Classics as a limited media book with DVD and Blu-Ray together with a 16 page booklet. This legendary fantasy classic by Roger Corman from the 80s has an absolute cult status!
The first edited version of the film was only 58 minutes long, but Roger Corman wouldn’t be Corman if he hadn’t skilfully incorporated elements from his other fantasy films to ultimately reach the 79-minute cinema length.
After the evil wizard Shurka (Thom Christopher) has killed the king of a forgotten empire and his court magician, the young warrior Simon (Vidal Peterson), who is also well versed in the art of magic, sets out to defeat the powers of evil with the help of a magic ring. For he wants his kingdom, which is now enslaved by three sinister magicians, to be one again. On his adventurous and dangerous journey he meets the forest wizard Hurla, the good-natured monster Gulvak and the veteran fighter Kor (Bo Svenson). They join him to defeat the forces of evil together…
