Thanks! GoingEtheric, have you seen the movie "Army of Darkness" (1992)?
It's about a search for the Necronomicon during the dark ages with lot's of knights, wizards and magic, i've not finished it yet but it is well made and the effects are cool also.
"A man is accidentally transported to 1300 A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home."IMDBhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106308/
