''Yor, the Hunter from the Future'', also known as ''Yor's World'', is a film released in 1983. It was directed by the famous Italian B-movie director Antonio Margheriti and starring Reb Brown of ''SpaceMutiny'' fame. The setting is a mixture between prehistoric and futuristic, borrowing elements from numerous popular franchises of the time. It has a growing cult following, and has been released on DVD in Germany.

The movie opens with Yor (Creator/RebBrown) jogging around the [[LandmarkOfLore stone towers of Cappadocia, Turkey]] while a very cheesy rock ballad plays in the background. In a nearby village, Kala, a seemingly primitive cave-woman, and her older protector Pak are hunting. Suddenly, they are attacked by a triceratops. Yor appears out of nowhere and kills the dinosaur with his axe. He is befriended by the village and together they cut the choice meats to be feasted upon in a celebration.

While Yor is there, a band of [[{{Mutants}} cavemen with bluish skin]] attack the village, and only Yor and Pak escape. Yor immediately swears to get Kala back, so Yor and Pak track the blue cavemen to their lair where Yor shoots a giant bat with his bow and arrow. He then uses the dead bat like a hang glider to storm the lair and sneak out the back with Kala before flooding the cave and drowning all the captives... yes, you read that sequence of events correctly.

Kala and Pak decide to follow Yor in his adventure to find his origins. Along the way, they find a mysterious society of sand mummies, led by a blonde woman with an amulet similar to Yor's.

Eventually, Yor (in an effort to discover his true origins), makes his way to an island surrounded by storms. There he discovers that his parents were from a small band of [[AfterTheEnd nuclear holocaust survivors]]. An evil man named the Overlord has taken control of the remaining nuclear technology with his android army.

The 90 minute movie of ''Yor'' that most viewers know of was edited from a four-episode Italian TV mini-series. Entertaining reviews by WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment ([[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2008/07/06/yor-movie-review/ here]]) and Website/SomethingAwful ([[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/movie-reviews/movie-review-yor.php here]]) share a general sense that when the movie is bad, it's almost insultingly stupid - but when it's good, it's fantastically stupid.

!''Yor: The Hunter from the Future'' has examples of:

* AfterTheEnd: A major plot twist
* ArtisticLicensePaleontology - At the beginning, [[spoiler:Yor kills a triceratops, a well-known herbivore that's trying to eat people]], although we now know it did indulge in carnivorous behaviour once in a while. How the heck a [[spoiler:Triceratops]] is around [[spoiler:in the future, after a nuclear war]] is left to the watcher to explain.
* AttackHello: Yor gets startled by an android guard walking up behind him and smashes its head in with a rock.
* {{Badass}}: Yor. He's the man, after all.
* BadassGrandpa: Pak
* BarbarianHero: Yor. He's the man!
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Yor's motivation is to find his destiny, whatever that is.
* BeardOfBarbarism: Pak has one
* BigBad: The Overlord
* BlatantLies: The theme song boldly proclaims that Yor "never sees the sun/he's always on the run" as he leisurely strolls through an incredibly sunny desert.
* BMovie
* {{Cavemen}}: Everybody.
* ChickMagnet: Yor. He's the man.
* CompilationMovie: As discussed above, it's made from a cobbled-together miniseries.
* DullSurprise: Pak looks very disinterested about shooting robots with a laser.
* EarthAllAlong: The twist.
* TheEighties: It was made in the '80s, and there's no mistaking it.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: They add nothing to the plot, really, but... dinosaurs!
* EvilOverlord: His name is even Overlord.
* ExpositoryThemeTune: It actually gives the entire twist of this being a future wasteland caused by a nuclear war, mixed in with some basic word salad. Well, it would spoil it if ''the title hadn't done the job already''.
* FlamingSword: During the fight with the mummies.
* GiantFlyer: Later doubles as a Giant Hang-glider!
* GonnaNeedMoreX: "We will need a lot more hemp before we're through."
* HiddenElfVillage: The mummies, sort of.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: The Overlord, impaled on an inanimate carbon rod.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Yor. Especially when shooting down the bat.
* InferredHolocaust: Yor commits genocide on five civilizations over the course of the film! Even the people he was trying to rescue, he drowns.
* KillerRobot: Overlord has an army of very slow, clunky ones.
* LargeHam: Yor. Reb Brown is not a subtle actor.
* {{Leitmotif}} / ThemeMusicPowerUp: The chanting of ''Yor's World'' any time something insanely awesome happens.
* LoinCloth: Standard issue.
* LowCultureHighTech: Cavemen with lasers.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: Yor has a habit of destroying any civilization he comes into contact with. And we're not just talking about the ones that antagonize him, either. To be fair, he was only coincidentally present at one of them.
* {{Mondegreen}}: See WordSaladLyrics below.
* {{Mooks}}: The Overlord's robots.
* {{Mutants}}: The blue guys. And, presumably, the dinosaurs, given the future setting.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Dinosaurs, robots, and {{Cavemen}} using lasers.
* NotableOriginalMusic: ''Yor's World'' is sung by Oliver Onions
* OlderSidekick: Pak
* OrphansPlotTrinket: Yor's mysterious pendant
* RailingKill: This predates the TropeNamer, [[SpaceMutiny another film]] featuring Reb Brown.
* RedShirt: Kala's tribe, and the fisherfolk on the beach.
* RockBeatsLaser: Rock decapitates robot!
* RuleOfCool: The only possible justification for a number of things in the film. Especially that glider.
* SchizoTech: Here we have cavemen armed with laser rifles shooting robots.
* SpoilerTitle - The film seems to present as a shocking twist the idea that it is set in a post-apocalyptic future rather than the past as a great revelation after the Overlord's technological minions appear. Despite the fact that it ''says in the title'' that it's set in the future.
* StockDinosaurs: This movie has a triceratops [[CriticalResearchFailure eating a caveman]]
* TakeOverTheWorld - The Overlord's ultimate plan. which leads to massive FridgeLogic regarding his army, which can probably destroy all other civilizations without even trying
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: He underhands it!
* TitleThemeTune: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q39f4YzK6sU&NR=1 Yor's world, he's the man! Yor's world, he's the ma-an!]]''
* WhosOnFirst: The title.
-->Yor! The hunter from the future!
-->I ''am''?
* WordSaladLyrics ("There is a man from future, a man of mystery!" and "He's gonna make all them white bees [[note]] (Possibly a {{mondegreen}} for the slightly less nonsensical "wild beasts")[[/note]] look tame tonight! With his FIIIIIIGHT!") And he never sees the sun, apparently...
** SoulCoughing, a band known for their own WordSaladLyrics, quote this movie in their song "Casiotone Nation". The bridge consists of a reminder that Yor is, indeed, the man.
