Monstervision's Joe Bob Briggs Looks At

The Dungeonmaster (1985)

(From Joe Bob's Ultimate B Movie Guide)

The first movie in history to use seven directors--they kept firing em until they got it right!-- this weird alternate-universe tale stars Leslie Wing as a whiny nagging bimbo in love with computer nut Jeffrey Byron, but Jeffrey is more in love with his computer Cal. So the devil zaps em both into a nightmare so he can test his evil powers against Cal and maybe get some nookie. So the devil keeps chaining her up and making Jeffrey save her. First he has to fight a giant Buddha statue, then he goes in a cave where the population has intestines growing out of their faces and a bunch of midgets attack him with pitchforks. Then the devil goes for Leslie Wing's groceries, and Jeffrey has to get real mean and say "I reject your reality and I substitute my own!" Then they all go listen to some punk rock music and chain up Leslie Wing again, and the devil says "You have spirit, woman. And then they get zapped to ANOTHER cave, where everything is frozen, and get attacked by some wax statues, followed by a horny-toad monster, an avalanche and a Road Warrior ripoff scene.

A man lies dying on his hospital bed and asks his wife to come close. He says, "I cannot rest in peace until I confess. I slept with your sister, your best friend, and your mother."
"I know," she replies, "That's why I poisoned you."

Elvis has left the building, and he took Joe Bob with him. Has anyone seen this copy of the Dallas Slimes Herald from 1985? I think he had a longer review in it.
