An Incredible Adventure Starring One of Cinema's Most Enduring Characters
5 August 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Maciste is one of the film industries most enduring characters which was introduced in Cabiria in 1914. Maciste in Hell is the 24rth film in the series which would run until 1927 before being resurrected for another twenty five films produced in Italy following the world-wide success of Hercules in 1958. Exploitation film-maker Jesse franco kept the character on screen during the 1970s. Maciste in Hell finds our burly hero lured to the underworld by the Devil who seeks to corrupt his virtue and thereby enslave his soul to damnation. This silent era black and white film is loaded with amazing visuals and impressive set designs that evoke a nightmare world of fire and brimstone. Fans of classic fantasy should make a point of seeing this excellent film which is in the public domain.
