This question already has an answer here:

I once saw a movie(sci-fi/fantasy) that I can't remember, but I know I liked it. I was really small and can't get any of the plot back together, but it was fairly old-ish movie (my guess would be 70's ~ 90's).

The only clues I remember are:

  1. Hairy legged horses (like furry legs)
  2. Star-like metal weapon that appeared multiple times
  3. Group of people going from A to B, looking for something
  4. One of the heros was a cyclops that died during the film by being squeezed between rocks
  5. It wasn't animated.

If it rings any bell to anybody it would mean the world to me. Thanks a lot!


Somebody marked my question as duplicate of this one. While it points towards the same answer, the question was different. I didn't remember any teleporting castle and therefore my question wasn't answerable simply by using search.

    @SeanDuggan even though that question has also Krull as an answer, the wording structure of the question and the clues are completely different. If I searched with my clues all over the website, this question wouldn't have popped up, I'm afraid. – Michal Dec 16 '15 at 14:05

    @Michal all the more reason to mark it a duplicate so that the next person to go searching can have twice as much information to compare when determining if it is the movie they are thinking of. – Matthew Green Dec 16 '15 at 14:43

    @MatthewGreen Linked for that reason absolutely yes, but duplicate may lead to deletion no? – Michal Dec 16 '15 at 14:58

    @Michal No duplicates don't get deleted. They are more like signposts. They only get deleted if they meet the usual requirements which this question is way past. scifi.stackexchange.com/help/duplicates – Matthew Green Dec 16 '15 at 15:09

This could be the 1983 live-action movie Krull - which includes:

  • the Glaive, "an ancient, magical, five-pointed throwing weapon";
  • a series of journeys, with the ultimate goal of reaching the Black Fortress;
  • a cyclops (called Rell), who "sacrifices himself to hold open the huge spaceship doors long enough to allow the others to enter".
  • Definitely this. – Valorum Dec 16 '15 at 13:34
  • YES! Thank you! – Michal Dec 16 '15 at 13:35
  • @Michal: you're welcome! – user3069 Dec 16 '15 at 13:38
  • Krull had a space ship?? That's one wild 80s "fantasy" movie, I just remember it being slow, like s-l-o-w slow – Xen2050 Dec 16 '15 at 15:54
