The New Barbarians (Italian: I nuovi barbari) is a 1983 Italian post-apocalyptic action film directed by Enzo G. Castellari.

The film was released in U.S. theaters by New Line Cinema as Warriors of the Wasteland in 1984.


In the year 2019, after a nuclear war, humanity is reduced to a few starving groups. A ruthless gang called "The Templars" constantly raid settlers in an attempt to exterminate everyone in order to purge the Earth. A former Templar, Scorpion, along with his allies, prevents a small band of religious colonists from being massacred by the Templars.[1]


In November 2011, Rifftrax released Barbarians (under the "Warriors of the Wasteland" title) with their characteristic humorous audio narration embedded into the video. The film is available as a downloadable video file or via VOD.[2]
