Krull script
Krull (1983)
Synopsis: Krull is a 1983 British-American science fantasy film directed by Peter Yates and starring Ken Marshall, Lysette Anthony, David Battley and Freddie Jones. It was produced by Ron Silverman and released by Columbia Pictures. Krull's distinctive features include an unlikely union between the science fiction and fantasy genres, a robust score by James Horner, early screen roles for actors Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane, and its surrealistic set design within the castle presented as the "Black Fortress". Although it was a commercial failure when released, it has since achieved status of a cult film.

QUEEN:

What news from our friends?

TUROLD:

Barak is still strong in the north,

and Tendo holds the high passes. But

the great desert forts have fallen.

QUEEN:

Freylag's stronghold?

TUROLD:

It has been taken, Freylag and all

his people slaughtered.

QUEEN:

It is only a few weeks and already

half our strong places have fallen.

TUROLD:

The attacks are unceasing: by night,

the Dark Ones; by day, those of our

people who have sold themselves to

them, those traitors who are called

the Slayers.

QUEEN:

It is the way of all invaders. Those

they would conquer they divide,

buying allies with promises of land

and power.

TUROLD:

We will hold. Their power is not

unlimited.

EXT. GLOOMY FOREST ROAD - DAY

Two mounted SLAYERS ride along the road. Their horses and

armor are black, as are their cylindrical, flat-topped

helmets, pierced with a T-slot for vision. Their weapons are

long-swords and maces.

Two more Slayers ride out of the forest and join the black

column. At a road up ahead wait three more, who swing in

behind the column as it passes.

Forest noises die at the Slayers' approach; the only sounds

we hear are the clink of metal and the heavy thud of the

horses' hooves.

INT. TOWER STAIRCASE - DAY

Colwyn mounts a narrow, circular staircase toward a wooden

door.

INT. TOWER ROOM - INTERCUT

LYSSA, the Queen's seventeen-year-old daughter, stares

across the circular room at the wooden door, listening to

Colwyn's approaching footsteps.
