About Kill Shit With Swords Movies
Kill Shit With Swords Movies are films that feature the immortal and phallic symbol of the sword featured in glorious battle. The sword has long been a symbol of power and honor in history, from the noble katana of the Samurai, to the lightning-fast rapier that hung on the belts of the legendary Musketeers. Swords have long been a part of film from the earliest stories featuring the likes of Douglas Fairbanks, to the more recent sword-clashing epics.
