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.

Awful
18 May 2007 | by (the rock) – See all my reviews

HERCULES, PRISONER OF EVIL is one of the worst Sword & Sandal films ever. It's unspeakably bad. The first thing is it's not even a Peplum. The setting is old Europe, not Ancient Greece or Rome. The story, about a witch wanting to become queen, is crap and confusing. The acting is bad. The production values are non-existent. Reg Park is somewhere in there. The "monster" is not scary but embarrassing. The shriek it makes is hilarious, not scary. I saw this on the Retromedia DVD of HERCULES AND THE CAPTIVE WOMEN (that one is good) and the transfer was really bad. The soundtrack wasn't even in sync with the crappy image. All in all, a thoroughly unpleasant viewing and not just because of the bad transfer. I was entertained by other good S&S films even if the DVD transfers were mediocre. A good transfer wouldn't improve anything about this awful film.
