Deathstalker (Rick Hill) is a mighty warrior on a quest to find a mystical sword and to save a kingdom ruled by an evil sorcerer.

Argentine actor Víctor Bó would next be cast as Strymon in 1985's Barbarian Queen.

Richard Brooker (Oghris) previously appeared as Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part III (1982).

Rick Hill's later films included 1987's Warrior Queen and 1991's Deathstalker IV: March of the Titans (in which he would again be cast as the title character). In 1998 the actor appeared in the TV series Mowgli: The New Adventures of the Jungle Book (S1.E6).

Filmed on location at the Aries Studios in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the film spawned three sequels: Deathstalker II (1987), Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell (1988) and Deathstalker IV: Match of the Titans (1991).
