The bad guy has one of his henchmen, wearing a bird-shaped helm, attack his wife with a "talon", a claw-bladed weapon. The bad guy states that if his wife will not tell him which was child was firstborn then he would assure that she will never have children again. Given the vantage point of the scene it might look like the henchman was raping the woman but apparently he was using the talon to give her the Aunt Jemima treatment.
what...why...why is it called that?

Re: What's this 80's sword/sandal/sorcery movie?

Anyone recall a knock-off of Star Wars, but set in a fantasy setting? It's not Krull, I know that much.

I recall the main guy was named Hawk (or Raven? Crow?) and he gathers an elf, a dwarf and a human to help him defend or rescue something. There is an Obi-won/Merlin type guy... one of the heroes has a repeating bolt gun, the elf is a good marksman with a bow...

Found it!

Hawk the Slayer

Among its many dubious distinctions, Hawk the Slayer is the only sword-and-sorcery movie to feature Silly-String® as a medieval weapon! This splendidly wretched British fantasy also boasts such magical wonders as an automatic fast-action crossbow and an archer who shoots instantly replenished arrows in rapid succession, never missing his target! At the lowest ebb of his career, Jack Palance is gleefully hammy as Voltan, the disfigured (i.e., irredeemably evil) elder brother of Hawk (John Terry), who swears vengeance after Voltan kills their father, kidnaps a virginal abbess (Annette Crosbie), and threatens a nunnery for ransom. Add an ultracheesy '80s soundtrack (imagine Rick Wakeman playing roller disco) and some respectable British thespians (Patrick Magee, Roy Kinnear, Harry Andrews), and you've got a poor man's Willow with a dash of Krull, laughably awful and surprisingly entertaining. Fully aware of its own low-budget absurdity, Hawk the Slayer is a Bad Movie classic, guaranteed to satisfy connoisseurs of garbage. (Trivia note: Terry survived his titular heroics and was guest-starring on the popular TV series 24 when this DVD was released in late 2002.) --Jeff Shannon

I finally found the movie! It's called The Lamp aka The Outing from 1987. Here's a link to the scene:

When I think of 80's sword and sandal movies, I don't typically think of them being set in the 80's. Thanks for the update, I've never even heard of that movie before now.

You're welcome. I first thought it was a S&S movie because every other movie with a guy in a black iron helmet in it is usually a S&S movie. I had no idea I was watching an 80's horror movie when I first saw it at the age of 10 or so.

Since my posts in this thread I've seen The Lamp/The Outing for the October Horror Movie Challenge and I would have never put this thread and that movie together. Jinn for the win!
