Merlin: The Return

Please choose a format above.

Merlin, the legendary wizard is stuck inside a terrible nether dimension. Meanwhile, the former stars of Wayne’s World, Highlander, and The Young Ones are stuck in a terrible movie about Merlin, the legendary wizard.

Merlin wants to escape the nether dimension, which makes sense because the nether dimension looks like a black light barfed glo-sticks all over a Spencer’s Gifts. Unfortunately, his arch foe Mordred wants to leave too. Assisting him is Tia Carrere who has built an interdimensional portal. (She was hoping to be able to travel into Mike Myer’s house to beg him to make Wayne’s World 3.)

Eventually, King Arthur, Lancelot, Merlin, Mordred, and all their armies wind up in modern day… Uh, England? America? South Africa? Wherever it is, they have what is undoubtedly the fakest Stonehenge in film history. Spinal Tap wishes their Stonehenge looked this fake. There are ghost-skeletons in this movie that look more realistic than this Stonehenge and ghost-skeletons aren’t even a thing!

Join Mike, Kevin, Bill, Sir Gawain, but NOT The Green Knight for Merlin: The Return!
