‘Conan the Destroyer’ Movie Summary

The story begins when the evil queen of Shadizar confronts Conan and his fellow traveling thief, Malak. After Conan slaughters about a dozen of the queen’s guards and gives a horse a Mongo-of-Blazing-Saddles punch, the queen tells Conan that she has a quest for him: Conan must find and return to the queen the horn that will resurrect the god Dagoth. After brief haggling, Conan agrees to complete the quest in exchange for the queen’s promise to bring back to life Conana’s lost love, Valeria.

Conan only needs to escort the queen’s virgin niece, Jehnna, to the magic gem and the horn of Dagoth. To ensure that her niece remains a virgin, the queen entrusts Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain, the man who bedded 20,000 women, to accompany Jehnna, Conan, and Malak. This the first of many poor choices the queen makes. Unbeknownst to Conan, once he obtains the magic gem, Chamberlain must murder him.

Conan’s quest is difficult. A powerful wizard guards the magic hidden within a fortified castle. Conan and his band of seekers happen upon a group of cannibals that have somehow managed to capture Conan’s favorite wizard, Akiro. Conan rescues Akiro, and Akiro agrees to help Conan with his quest; although, if Akiro’s spells are no match for primitive savages, how much help will he be to Conan?
