Strongman Maciste must battle the one-eyed Cyclops monster that is ravaging the land of Sadok, while at the same time fending off the advances of the evil Queen Capys, who wants to do a little ravaging of her own.
Two strongmen set out to hunt down a murderous sea monster. Their ship is wrecked and they end up in the Holy Land where Hercules is assumed to be Samson who is a wanted man. The two team up to survive.
Maciste arranges for himself and his new friend Bangor to be captured by a mysterious band of white-clad marauders and taken to an underground city. There the two are forced to turn an enormous wheel along with other captives as part of a gold-and-diamonds mining operation. The underground city's queen, Halis Mosab, takes note of the handsome, muscular Maciste and chooses him to be her consort if he can meet such challenges as saving the kidnapped Princess Saliura from a gigantic ape.

Maciste, Son of Hercules is at it again. This time he is fighting his lamest foes yet - The Mole Men. The Mole Men must live underground and not to be caught above ground because if they go out the sunlight will kill them. They are pale with white long (wigs) hair, look like humans.
Someone somewhere must have been making a killing off these films... money that is. Italy pumped out several of these in just a few years time, 7 years (1958 to 1965) before the spaghetti westerns took over. Apparently the it didn't matter the story or foes or how well it was filmed, the audiences must have just wanted to look at muscle men on screen doing whatever at that time.
Awful movie, one of the worst peplum of the time era.
