 Filmtracks: Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time (Robert Folk)
Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time: (Robert Folk) You really have to wonder what original "Beastmaster" novelist Andre Norton thinks of the wretched path this concept has taken through theatres and cable television over a two-decade span.
Halfway along that road to rebirth (not to mention another sequel after this, and a television series), the film stayed in the theatres just long enough to receive an appropriately brutal slashing from critics, who didn't need much intelligence to notice all the ways in which corners were cut to meet a smaller production budget.
Folk's work on Beastmaster 2 is a little more understandable, however; even the trashiest old-world adventure films of the 1980's tried to compensate for their lameness by saving much of their budgets for overwhelming scores.

 Scifilm -- Reviews, THE BEASTMASTER (1982)
CONAN THE BARBARIAN was released in May, THE BEASTMASTER in August, and THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER somewhere in between (can't pin down an exact date on that one).
THE BEASTMASTER was co-written, produced, and directed by the creative team of Don Coscarelli and Paul Pepperman.
The film was successful enough to spawn two sequels: BEASTMASTER 2: THROUGH THE PORTAL OF TIME and BEASTMASTER 3: THE EYE OF BRAXUS, as well as a syndicated television series "BeastMaster" (though Coscarelli and Pepperman's involvement was limited only to the first picture).

 The Beastmaster   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Among the initial crop was The Beastmaster, which shared a few similarities with its forerunner, the main one being that the film was based on pre-existing material, in this case a novel by Andre Norton.
A lot of what makes The Beastmaster so enjoyable is that there are actual characters to invest in, something very few of the Conan copies - and neither of the official spin-offs - could manage.
Sure, much of the dialogue is hokey and the action scenes look rather rushed, but there’s a sense that the cast and crew were really enthusiastic about the film, which sets it apart from all the other rip-offs, even the official ones.

 DVD Talk Review: The Beastmaster
Certainly, "The Beastmaster" doesn't deliver in terms of acting, as the ferrets easily provide the best performance of the movie.
Not fairing too well in its theatrical release, where it faced competition from films like "E.T." and "Officer and a Gentleman", the film later became a home video and cable success, where it gained what seems to be a fairly major cult following.
Although not quite as impressive as the audio quality, the image quality is suprisingly good for a film that's nearly 20 years of age.
