Time for another round of "name that obscure, weird movie I saw as a kid"!

I saw this when I was 6 years old, on a trip to India during the summer before 1st grade. So, this would've been around 1988. My parents left me with someone (an uncle?) who took my brother and I to a movie theater and showed me the only movie that was playing in English. I feel pretty certain the movie was British, or had actors doing British accents. It was set in Midieval times and had a group of knights as the main characters. There weren't any typical fantasy elements, though, and I recall it was a really grotesque, gory horror movie. It wasn't gory or R-rated until the last half hour of the movie, when the knights went exploring down into the depths of a cave by torchlight. I just remember a lot of fighting, and a whole bunch of bad things happening in terrifying ways. Most memorably, people's limbs were being hacked off, but they were still alive. The main character(s) were very much lacking in limbs by the end of the movie, and there was lots of blood. So, very dark, British (?) Midieval horror with loss of limbs. Yep, a weird movie by anyone's standards, but especially for a wide-eyed 6 year old. Was I hallucinating this?
