In one of the most inappropriate movies of the ‘80s, a budding Kim Cattrall jump started puberty of youths all across America. The film required two rounds of editing to lose the X-rating that it initially received. The movie became an absolute smash hit at the box office grossing $160 million against a budget of just $4 million! Perhaps even more amazingly, the film succeeded despite terrible reviews from critics. Roger Ebert went as far as to call it one of the worst films of 1982. As always, never underestimate the simple minds of men.

There are two things that we remember from Beastmaster, the fact that the titular master of beasts has a pseudo magical power to control animals and Tanya Roberts. As the queen of b-movies in the 1980s Roberts was a teen boy’s dream and she says that she chose to appear in Beastmaster because there wasn’t as much focus on her. She told Fangoria:

I chose The Beastmaster because it gave me the chance to slip into movies without getting the whole book thrown at me. The movie wasn’t built around me. I was just an actor in it, and it was a good chance for me to be seen.
