APRIL MOVIE THON DAY 9: Quest for the Unicorn (2018)

I love that the cover of this movie looks like it could very well be a kid movie about unicorns and the actual film is full of gore, cannibalism and that trait that Heavy Metal and The Hitchhiker always had where breasts just have to appear every few scenes.

A widow (Karin Brauns) goes on a dangerous quest to meet a mythical wish-granting unicorn which just so happens to live in a Wishing Forest. And that’s where the cannibals live and a feral goddess (Stormi Maya) who devours the hearts of non-believers.

This movie is like a Nightwish tour shirt come to life for 80 someodd minutes. And the effects are way better than they need to be, the gross moments are more than gross and the women are all universally the kind of gorgeous that red blooded boys enjoy. It made me wish that the 80s era of deathstalkers and sorceresses never ended and we got more of these movies.

Directed by Leia and Jadzia Perez from a script by Jamie Grefe, who has also write some new Emanuelle movies that aren’t out yet, this movie feels like getting dosed outside an Amon Amarth show, making out with someone you don’t know and will never see again, then coming to at a Melvins show across town in the midst of drinking your third beer. It doesn’t have to make any sense for you to enjoy it.

You can watch this on Tubi.
