Fairy King of Ar

Please choose a format above.

Fairy King of Ar is a delightful journey into the magical land of fairies. It starts with Grandma dropping dead and dad contracting emphysema. And once you get a look at the fairy “special effects”, we think you’ll agree it gets even more depressing from there.

When former leading man Corbin Bernsen discovers an ancient gold mine on his family’s property, he thinks it could be his ticket out of doing movies like Fairy King of Ar. But the mine is said to be inhabited by goblins and the townspeople fear that entering it could unleash a terrible curse. So Corbin does what any real American dad would do: send his kids in first!

Meanwhile, Malcolm McDowell continuously trespasses on the family’s property, literally assaults the children, and tries to bash a fairy’s head in with a shovel. This is the comic relief character. At this point it should be obvious that Grandma got off easy.

Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for goblins, fairies, giants, and perhaps the longest bike chase scene in any movie since Time Chasers in Fairy King of Ar!
