Ator, The Fighting Eagle

Please choose a format above.

Miles O’Keeffe, everyone’s favorite Cave Dweller from the MST3K episode of the same name, is back, and he’s Cave Dwell-ier than ever!

Miles reprises his role as the dopey, well-coiffed warrior Ator, which is pronounced all different kinds of fun ways depending on which chopped-up segment of dubbed Italian cinema you happen to be looking at.

This installment gives us Ator’s origin, and boy is it creepy! Suffice to say the first thing we learn about Ator is that he wants to marry his sister, and, uh, everybody is pretty much fine with that. Everybody except the evil spider priest, who is mostly focused on gently caressing spiders in the abandoned community college amphitheater he calls home. Does the evil spider priest call to mind the evil snake priest from the popular Conan the Barbarian, released shortly before this movie? No! Of course not! What a strange question!

Ator goes on a quest to save his sister-wife and continue their morally questionable marriage, with the aid of a bear cub who is sometimes there but a lot of times not there, for unexplained reasons. Also unexplained: why the movie is called Ator, the Fighting Eagle or what a “Fighting Eagle” is. The phrase seriously never comes up at all.

Strap into your animal skin hang glider and soar to new depths with Mike, Kevin, and Bill. It’s Ator, the Fighting Eagle!
