Trivia

The US distributor used the English language track that was recorded in Italy. This resulted in this film being one of the few in which the hero's name, Maciste, was used in the English dubbed version. For other films involving Maciste, when the English language track was recorded in the US, his name would usually be changed to a more familiar name such as "Goliath" or "Samson." See more »

An amazing adventure
16 September 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Engaging cross between witch-burning horror and heroic peplum sees Maciste, the film's muscle-bound, loincloth-clad hero, uprooting a tree and travelling into the depths of hell to lift a witch's curse and save an innocent woman's life. Along the way he has to battle various foes such as lions, eagles, giants, snakes, you name it. This is a thoroughly entertaining slice of escapism packed with action and cool special effects.
