My favorite cult classic movie memory is from the 1980's. It was one of those B-movies they show on HBO or Cinemax late at night. Its a Quest movie. Swords and Sorcery. Possibly apocalyptic scenario. Lots of scantily clad babes. Lots of macho dudes. They assembled a team to go on a quest for some reason. Dont remember what.

The best scene is when they try to cross a bridge. There is a guy standing there who won't let them pass. So one of our heroes takes his sword and chops the guys arm off. While we're distracted, the arm becomes a clone of the man guarding the bridge. Awesome movie. Probably cheeseball. Might be British but its def not Monty Python.

According to Wikipedia, this film is post-apocalyptic, occurring “23 years after an event called ‘The Cancellation.’”

An IMDB review mentions the bridge guard:

Mix together sword-and-sorcery and post-apocalyptic elements, add a dose of political allegory (note the Communist and Nazi symbols), a contemporary music score and some surreal moments that seem to have come straight out of Monty Python (a bridge guard who multiplies every time you chop off one of his limbs) and you have this bizarre film that is neither a straight adventure nor exactly a spoof.

And of course, the lightly-dressed women:

It suffers from an overly episodic structure, but it benefits from Sandahl Bergman and Quin Kessler as the two muscular, beautiful Amazon warriors who are as proficient with a sword as with any other weapon.
