The Treasure of the Four Crowns (1983)

This film is like Rembrandt without the art; it’s dark.

In the opening scene, as the credits roll, a man stands before a castle, armed only with a cigarette and a pair of gloves.

The eerie music informs us that we are in the presence of evil, as our hero spends the next 20 minutes fighting off more fauna than Indiana Jones would have put up with in the castle of Belmonte, which gets blown to pieces in the film, although visitors may rest assured that it is in fact still standing.

The only other attraction of the film is a soundtrack written by Morricone.
