Mythica 3: The Necromancer Now Available

Posted by Rampant Coyote on May 11, 2016

Mythica 3: The Necromancer… the best of the trilogy IMO… is now available at Wal-Marts nationwide as of… yesterday, I guess…  It’s also available digitally from Arrowstorm Entertainment.

If you haven’t seen the rest of the series, it’s well worth it. Yeah, they aren’t Star Wars or Lord of the Rings,  but are surprisingly good for low-budget indie movies. The first one is kind of the story of an archetypical D&D party with some interesting party members and one with a scary secret… she’s actually a necromancer, with little control over her deadly abilities. The second film went both darker and more epic, as Marek’s abilities proved to be both key to victory and a deadly threat to those closest to her.

This third film takes things in a bit of a grittier direction, but in the process really explores the main characters in more detail. It’s a ground-level adventure that leads to an unexpected and game-changing confrontation.  It also features more screen time with Kevin Sorbo than the previous two movies combined, but I still take exception to the marketing that says he’s “starring” in the shows.

Epic fantasy is not something that mixes well with “indie,” but I think Arrowstorm managed to pull it off. Unless the first one leaves you cold, I recommend checking out all three. The Necromancer is the best of the bunch, a strong middle chapter before moving on to the last two films.

    I’m curious, but I don’t usually rewatch movies, so I’m not sure I want to shell out the $15 a pop or $40 for 3. What did you mean by this though? “The Necromancer is the best of the bunch, a strong middle chapter before moving on to the last two films.” Isn’t The Necromancer the third of three? It sounds like you’re describing a #2 of 4 or #3 of 5.

    It was the third of the original trilogy. They filmed all three films back-to-back, Lord of the Rings style, and then completed them one at a time. While they had plans for more films, I think they designed the series so that, if it didn’t do so well, they could quit on #3.

    However, after the success of the first film, they began working on #4 and #5. Those were also filmed back-to-back, and #4 (Mythica: The Iron Throne) has just been completed.

    So yeah – it’s the third of five.

    The first two are available for streaming on ConTV, and the first one is available for rental on Amazon. You can also get the DVDs through Netflix (now DVD.com).

    So… there are other options.

    We watched the first two on your recommendation, and really enjoyed them. Looking forward to the third one.

    Spoilery question:
    In the second one when Marek touches the tattooed elf she has a short vision of some sort. They didn’t revisit that in the rest of the film that we saw. Do you know what was up with that?

    I’m gonna have to go back and re-watch to remember the details of it. Can’t remember if it foreshadowed anything from the third film or not.
