Hercules (Reg Park) must fight a monster made of stone, retrieve a golden apple from the Tree of Hesperides, and brave the horrors of Hades to rescue his beloved from the clutches of evil Lyco (Christopher Lee, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars: Episode II). Oracles, witches, and vampires abound in this delirious blend of sword & sandal adventure, horror, and psychedelia. Maestro Mario Bava's first color film is awash in a sea of primary colors and eye-popping imagery. Fantoma is very proud to present the original European cut of this widescreen wonder for the first time in the U.S.
The mightiest mortal challenges the wrath of the gods to save the woman he loves from becoming a hideous creature of the damned. Italian gore maestro Mario Bava is up to his usual tricks, transforming violence and death into something aesthetically interesting. The inimitable horror thespian Christopher Lee gives a typically stellar performance.
