    The Archer: Fugitive From The Empire (1981)

    Made for TV Sword & Sorcery movie. I don't think it's ever been officially released on DVD. Anyone else remember this? I don't remember much about it but I do recall it was actually pretty decent.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I do remember renting this movie on VHS under the title "The Archer and the Sorceress".

    I remember loving this movie when it first aired and being disappointed the follow-ups they mentioned that first night that were supposed to be coming never materialized.

    I remember when it originally aired, I really liked it but yeah it was a busted pilot. It was available on VHS in the 80s and I rented it a couple of times.

    I'm weak - anyone have a good source for sketchy region one versions? I don't have anything that plays imports anymore or I'd buy one through amazon.

    I remember it airing and my thinking we'd get a series (or series of TV movies). For its budget it wasn't bad, especially for my age, but it didn't launch the new franchise at all.

    That's actually a way better title.
