I am Looking for a movie that was out around the late 70's early 80's.
It may be a Horror or a scary Sci -Fi for the time it came out. What I remember is this hooded cloaked Figure going into a room where a man and a pregnant woman were sleeping. The Figure cast a spell or something over both of them, to keep them from getting up. Then the Figure cast a spell over the woman and transfered the baby from her to a Goat or Yak, and the Goat or Yak baby to the woman. Then I remember the Figure walking to a fire with the animal in tow. Then the Figure splits the belly of the animal and gets the baby. I also think that the Figure burns an insignia on the baby, but that could be another movie altogether.
This is The Beastmaster, an excellent film starring Marc Singer as a man with the special ability to communicate with animals, and his predestined battle with an evil priest. And it it IS available on DVD, I have seen it at Suncoast Video plenty of times.

No the Beastmaster had the ability to speak with and control animals because of what happened to him, being transported to and born from the belly of an animal. He bore a mark upon his one palm that spoke of his ancestry because after the witch pulled him out, she burned the mark into his palm and then was killed by a wandering warior before she could sacrifice the baby. I know it's a weird beginning to a movie but this IS the movie that's being asked about.
