Film: The Beast Master
The courage of an eagle, the strength of a panther and the power of a God. The epic adventure is back like never before!
-The Beastmaster tagline

A fantasy movie from Don Coscarelli that became best known for its repeated late-night airings on cable throughout the 80s and 90s.

Maax is a twisted cult leader out to steal the throne of King Zed, but when Zed banishes Maax, he sends one of his three witches to steal Zed's unborn son. Ripping him right out of his mother's womb with magic and placing it a cow's womb, she took him to die. But a brave hunter killed the witch and rescued the young boy. Naming him Dar, they find out at a young age that he possess the power to communicate with animals. But Maax sends his thugs called the horde to wipe out his peaceful village, thanks to a brave dog, Dar survived again and makes plans on using his powers to kill Maax to avenge his people and his foster father.

Followed by two sequels, including a television series that qualified as a somewhat vindicated-by-reruns show.
