While fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings saga wait for the mega-bucks Amazon series, they can indulge in a campier version of the famed fantasy tale. If you love the cheesy films mocked by Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax, you’ll likely appreciate the shlocky goodness of a 1991 Soviet television version of the LOTR trilogy. 

From the school-play-style costumes to the home computer-like special effects, this is a quirky bit of nostalgia that’s about as far removed from director Peter Jackson’s Hollywood trilogy as Moscow is from Middle-earth.
