Trivia

Mark Forest's bare-chested torture scene, in which he's spreadeagled beneath a cluster of dangling, about-to-drop spears, may have inspired two similar scenes. Robert Culp, in the 1967 episode I Spy: A Room with a Rack (1967), and 'Sam J. Jones', in the 1987 movie, Jane and the Lost City (1987), underwent similar ordeals. See more »

Quotes

Morakeb: [supervising the torture of Goliath] I know of only one thing worse than physical pain, and that's waiting to be killed. Yes, he might suffer badly waiting for the mortal blow, or he might be lucky and receive it from the first spear.

One of the best of the genre
18 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Way above average for this type of thing. Lavishly produced, with plenty of truly rousing action sequences and a real sense of fun helped in no small way by the presence of Mark Forest. Forest had charisma to spare, with his teen idol good looks (impaired only slightly by a prematurely receding hairline!) and herculean physique. Most of all he really seemed to get into the action and fight scenes and in this film he's ably supported by the stunt choreographers, who bring a sense of humor reminiscent of the old Burt Lancaster epics (THE CRIMSON PIRATE etc.) or the early Jackie Chan. In addition SINS OF BABYLON is directed with real flair. Highly recommended for those into peplum.
