Storyline

A monster marauds the land ruled by Prince Regent Zerah, who seized power 10 years ago through the assassination of the Great Khan, fears that local hero Hercules (Ursus) may wrest the throne from him. To solidify his power, Zerah plans to marry his cousin, Amiko, daughter of the Great Khan. Amiko, however, loves Hercules. Meanwhile, Hercules, while attempting to find and subdue the monster, is badly injured by the monster. Zerah takes advantage of this situation through attacks and pillage but Hercules recovers, defeats Zerah in combat. Zerah now reveals that Amiko is not the daughter of the Khan. The daughter is Katya (Kato), a young woman rescued years ago and cared for by Hercules and his followers. The truth revealed, Amiko now openly uses her sorceress-powers to turn Hercules into the monster, just as she'd enchanted various other men in the past. Hercules (now the unwitting monster) prepares to kill Katya on Amiko's orders. When Hercules' brother, Ilo, brings about the death of... Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Antonio Margheriti and Deodato debut
1 August 2008 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Quite rare stuff. Two masters of Italian horrors Antonio Margheriti and young Ruggero Deodato directed this film in 1964. It has a lot to do with antique fairy tales and the screenplay is really original. Ursus is the prototype of Conan and other muscled heroes of fantasy movies. He is real hero in this film, fighting against evil, black magic, selfish king with a small number of friends, like Robin Good. Good fighting scenes really liked them. Good costumes and rather progressive score. Bewitched fighters turn in to werewolves like monsters. So this is a real epic fantasy with wise dialogs and 60s colors.
