I have posted the Conan The Destroyer Germany DVD Review!

CONAN THE DESTROYER: SE REGION 2 GERMANY REVIEW

I found a review for the Region 4 DVD of Conan The Destroyer. It was from DVD net. Find the link on the main page.

I have updated the DVD Screenshots page with screenshots of Sarah from Conan The Destroyer SE DVD.

The  Conan The Destroyer SE

I have updated the French Conan The Destroyer DVD with links to a couple of reviews, that include some great screenshots. Both reviews are in French, and you will need the translator for it.

I have updated the Conan The Destroyer Region 2: Germany DVD with the Official Front and Back Cover for the DVD. I also posted a link for review on the DVD.

The good news is that Conan The Destroyer SE is coming to DVD. However it's for Region 2. There are 3 versions, one from France, Japan, and Germany. I have created a separate page for DVD.. Please take a look.

The Region 2 DVDs are enhance for widescreen and include English 5.1 However the bad news: No uncut version, and no interview or commentary by Sarah.

I read this from DVDFILE.COM. I have petitioned for a US version. I am trying to get that done. The great news is that Conan The Destroyer SE region 2 is finally getting released in February 2002. Fans that have a region 2 or a region free DVD player will be able to play it. Composer Basil who did the music for both Conan movies, was interviewed last July for the DVD. I am not sure if the new version is the uncut version or not. We will find out!

A special note for Sarah Douglas Fans about the petition for Conan The Destroyer Uncut.

In 1982, Arnold Schwarzenegger played the title of Conan in Conan The Barbarian. It was based on Marvel comics of the Barbarian, Conan. The movie was a huge hit for many fans. It was also very violence and had a lot of sex. It was given an "R" Rating, and was very successful with an "R" Rating.

In 1984, Arnold returned as Conan in Conan The Destroyer. The studio wanted to release a gentler Conan and made the film rated PG. It backfired, and none of the fans were happy with the cuts including myself. Even Arnold has stated that it was a mistake. Arnold would later have major success with the first Terminator movie. After that film, he never had to do another Conan film.

Sarah Douglas has always been my favorite actress since Superman 2. She was just amazing as the Evil but beautiful Ursa who hated men and wanted to destroy the world. She certainly made life difficult for Superman. Of course Sarah had a great breakthrough performance for her role as Ursa. She would later become famous for playing villains. She has done a great job doing that.

While she was filming Conan The Destroyer, she would fly from Mexico to Burbank, Ca to film the nighttime soap opera Falcon Crest. She would fly back and fourth between the two jobs. She was certainly busy during those days.

There are two items that she mentioned to me. First was that character was never kidnapped so she could do the Conan Movie. She would travel back and fourth. The Falcon Crest producers gave her special permission to do both. Second: She never did a nude scene with Arnold. She was able to keep her clothes on during the love scene. This is what Sarah told me about scenes from Conan. " Don't know where anyone got the idea that I did nude work!! Far from it...I am way to British and conservertive!! I was fully clad in Conan and even had my crown on during love scene with Arnold!!" Regardless of this news. I am still interested in the uncut version.

Sarah also express her thoughts in Starlog 1986 about her favorite scenes that were left on the cutting room floor. She had a love scene with Arnold and seduces a statue.

I knew about the cut scenes when the movie was released. I read about in magazines. I even read the official novelization for the film. Even the comic book has some cut scenes.

I have had alot of major success with this Unofficial Site on Sarah Douglas. I have met so many people, both fans, and friends, and even family. They all like this site very much. They learn more about Sarah from this site then anywhere else. I even had Sarah respond to a few questions here and there. When I started this site, I wanted to know about a couple of items. I wanted to know what happened to Jack O'Halloran. He was MIA since 1994. I certainly found out what happened to him. He is a great guy and I have helped him connect with both Terence and Sarah. I also got to see a very rare movie that Sarah did back in 1977. Her first leading role called The Brute. Its one of her best roles. I am glad that I got to see it.

Those items were easy compared to getting the uncut Conan The Destroyer released on dvd. I have been petitioning at the home theater for the uncut version of Conan. I have had many people sign up for it. I want to thank everyone who has posted and saying that they want the uncut version. I also got great news that there is going to be a region 2 SE release of Conan The Destroyer on dvd. A special thanks to www.dvdfile.com Which I hope with this petition, and the future release of Conan region 2.. that anything is possible. This internet is a powerful tool. getting the uncut version of Conan is possible. We just need to show Universal that there is an audience for the film. You might be an Arnold fan, A Conan fan, A Sarah fan, or just a fan of fantasy films. I ask you come and join us as we petition for the uncut version of Conan. We need a least 100 votes or so.

CONAN

THE DESTROYER SE DVD

COMING TO REGION 2:

Here is the link to register for Home Theatre forum.

HOLY S#$*#(*!!!! I have been trying to get a SE of Conan The Destroyer released on dvd. The good news is that the SE is coming. The bad news, that its only on Region 2. This is an awesome start! The dvd will be enhanced for widescreen, documentary and other extras. Perhaps some deleted scenes? Plus a brand new cover. A very special thanks to www.dvdfile.com for the info. MGM is releasing the title overseas. No plans from Universal to release a SE here in the states! Hopefully we can change their minds.

I have had few people post for the uncut version of Conan The Destroyer on DVD. I still need more votes for the Uncut Conan The Destroyer. Thanks again for helping out.

Over at the Home Theatre Forum, there is a petition for the UNCUT "R" rated version for Conan The Destroyer. Hopefully if many fans can write and say that they want to see the "R" rated Conan The Destroyer. Many of Sarah's favorite scenes were cut to get a PG rating. This includes a love scene with Arnold. Sarah has mentioned that she was NOT Nude in the love scene with Arnold. I have always wanted to see the uncut version of Conan, ever since I saw the movie. Hopefully Universal will see the post at the home theatre forum and make a new DVD of Conan. You will have to sign up and be members for the home theatre. It's very easy to do. Sarah talks about her cut scenes from Conan in the 1986 Starlog Interview. I have had a few fans write to me about getting a copy of the "R" rated version of Conan The Destroyer. This is not just about me. I know that many fans want to see the "R" rated version. Thank you for the support.

DVD screenshots from Conan The Destroyer. I also have screenshots from Sarah's other movies on DVD which includes, Dracula, The Demolitionist, and Voodoo.
