What's the name of that sci-fi movie from the 80s or early 90s where they have to save a princess from a huge spider?

The spider kept the princess trapped in some room in her web or something.

There was a cyclops type creature that died squished in between some doors when he was holding the door open for his friend.

It was a group of people, and at the end of the movie the evil mountain or whatever exploded as they were riding away from it.

Anyone know?

    Krull (1983) immediately comes to mind. – Oliver_C Oct 17 '16 at 20:37


You can watch the complete movie here:

At the end you can see the mountain exploding (the sequence starts ca. at the 1:50:20 mark). Ca. at the 1:08:50 mark starts the spider's lair part, and ca. at the 1:12:10 mark you can have the first glimpse at the huge white spider. And ca. at the 1:32:20 mark you can see the one-eyed cyclops type dude.

On this Krull Wiki site there are pictures of the giant Crystal Spider.

And here is Rell, the Cyclops.

  • Note that the princess was not at all held captive by the spider, but after all this time it's no wonder some details would be confused. – Todd Wilcox Oct 18 '16 at 2:10
