DRAGONSLAYER has its weaknesses (too-contemporary young leads looking rather silly among great actors like Ralph Richardson, Peter Eyre and John Hallam) but the medievel atmosphere and the dragon itself are not among them. This is a fine, and often REALLY SCARY fantasy with a rich score by Alex North and, I believe, the most realistic and alarming dragon in all cinema history. Can we shoehorn this in on DVD before the REIGN OF FIRE release, just to give it a good headstart? I think REIGN's theatrical release might spawn interest in other dragon movies. But when it comes to DVD selling power, I worry it would steal sales from the 1981 Paramount/Disney classic because it is louder, more high-tech and bombastic (but far less scary and effective) and with recognizable flavor-of-the-month stars.
