      Jamy S Dr Strange merged with Warlock in the best possible way, Full Moon at its best, if Stan Lee sold them Marvel movie rights in the 90's we'd be in a better world Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/21/23 Full Review Allan C Corny low-budget Full Moon Features knock-off of Doctor Strange. Producer/co-director Charles Band originally had a deal with Marvel to produce a movie version of Doctor Strange in the same era as the famously awful low-budget Roger Corman 90s Fantastic Four movie adaptation. Jeffrey Combs (a Charles Band regular) plays the titular character, a modern-day wizard living in uptown Manhattan, who battles cosmic horrors (mostly Brian "COBRA" Thompson) unbeknownst to the mortals living around him. Sound familiar? Although clearly a ripoff, it's an endearing direct-to-video corny good time. Don't watch this film if you're looking for a Marvel style of film (unless it's the 70s live-action Amazing Spider-Man TV series your expecting), but watch this if you're into other Full Moon films like DOLLMAN, PUPPET MASTER, or OBLIVION, you'll dig this movie. On a related note, NICK FURY: AGENT OF SHIELD is my favorite of the corny 90s Marvel adaptations (BLADE is obviously the best [and not corny] adaptation), which I actually prefer over most of the big-budget polished MCU films. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/18/23 Full Review Duane U Hard to believe its been thirty years! Originally intended to be an adaptation of Doctor Strange, rights issues forced Charles Band to change the script and combine it with an unproduced screenplay he had written. The result is a fun, entirely charming and extremely entertaining fantasy/adventure superhero movie. Doctor Mordrid is hands down my favorite Full Moon feature and, in my opinion, Jeffrey Combs best performance. I own both the remastered Blu-ray and HD Digital . I've probably watched this more times than any other Full Moon release. I really wish we'd gotten a sequel. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/25/22 Full Review Audience Member Before the Multiverse, before the MCU, there was Mordrid. Long ago in the ancient time of 1992 a sorcerer from an alternate dimension of sorcerers, would be Earth's last defense against the forces of evil. He would be pretty bad at it tbh, but he's played by Jeffery Combs so it all works out. Bask in the glory of a superhero franchise that never was. Check out our podcast to hear more anchor.fm/foundonshelfpod/episodes/Doctor-Mordrid-1992-e1hkv5t Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Leave it to Full Moon to make a Dr. Strange movie years before Marvel got a chance. Well, you know, unless you count the Peter Hooten-starring TV movie version. Charles Band has the option to make a Dr. Strange movie, but the option expired before production started. Yet to ensure that this movie has true Marvel DNA, the production art — back when the title was Doctor Mortalis — was by Jack Kirby, the man who pretty much invented everything the House of Ideas started with. Supposedly, another pitch, Mindmaster, became Mandroid. Kirby was never paid and ended up suing. Anton Mordrid (Jeffrey Combs) has been sent to Earth by the Monitor to keep tabs on an evil wizard named Kabal (Brian Thompson, the Night Slasher from Cobra), a man who plans on stealing a trove of alchemical weapons and opening the gates of Hell. Mordrid has been waiting 150 years for this battle and the time is finally here. This is a pretty big movie for Full Moon, featuring a scene where prehistoric skeletons battle in a museum and lots of magic combat. Keep your eyes open, because one of Kabal's monsters at the end is a werewolf from The Howling. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review robert p Originally meant to be a Dr. Strange movie but Marvel read the script and said no way! So what you got is Doctor Mordrid a cheesy knock-off of Dr. Strange. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
