  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Yor, the Hunter from the Future, also known as Yor's World, is a film released in 1983. It was directed by the famous Italian B-movie director Antonio Margheriti and starring Reb Brown of Space Mutiny fame. The setting is a mixture between prehistoric and futuristic, borrowing elements from numerous popular franchises of the time. It has a growing cult following, and has been released on DVD in Germany.

The movie opens with Yor (Reb Brown) jogging around the stone towers of Cappadocia, Turkey while a very cheesy rock ballad plays in the background. In a nearby village, Kala, a seemingly primitive cave-woman, and her older protector Pak are hunting. Suddenly, they are attacked by a triceratops. Yor appears out of nowhere and kills the dinosaur with his axe. Yor is befriended by the village and together they cut the choice meats to be feasted upon in a celebration.

While Yor is there, a band of cavemen with bluish skin attack the village. Only Yor and Pak escape. Yor immediately swears to get Kala back. Yor and Pak track the blue cavemen to their lair where Yor shoots a giant bat with his bow and arrow. He then uses the dead bat like a hang glider to storm the lair and sneak out the back with Kala before flooding the cave... yes, you read that sequence of events correctly.

Kala and Pak decide to follow Yor in his adventure to find his origins. Along the way, they find a mysterious society of sand mummies, lead by a blonde woman; with an amulet similar to Yor's.

Eventually, Yor (in an effort to discover his true origins), makes his way to an island surrounded by storms. There he discovers that his parents were from a small band of nuclear holocaust survivors. An evil man named the Overlord has taken control of the remaining nuclear technology with his android army.

The 90 min movie of Yor that most viewers know of was edited from a four episode Italian TV mini series. Reviewed by The Spoony One here and Something Awful here.
