Salmanak, nominally ruled by a Sultan, is actually controlled by the vampire, Kobrak. Kobrak has an ally in the villainous Astra, a beautiful woman who exerts influence on the weak-willed Sultan. Meanwhile Goliath allies with Kurtik, leader of the Blue Men. The Sultan's soldiers soon capture Goliath but he escapes, after rescuing Guja, and together the two flee to a cave in the desert. There they discover the waxed bodies of Kobrak's victims and reunite with Kurtik. Kobrak arrives, puts Goliath in a pit, encloses him in a bell, and tortures him with sound waves.

I happen to like these cheap made in Italy spectacles. When I was I kid growing up in the sixties they were constantly on TV. So the appeal of these films to me is primarily nostalgia. However, I must admit most these films, in fact just about all these films are pretty bad. These films were the "kung fu" cheapies of there day. No I would never say that this film is good, but as far these films go, this one is not bad.At least its got a rather bizarre plot with its evil vampire bent on enslaving man kind. The bluemen are also kind of strange. The film is well paced and there is lots of action. Many of these spear and sandal epics are talky and static. Also from watching this film one can at least see that Gorden Scott din't get to fat to play Tarzan!
