Storyline

Argolese saves Telca, daughter of King Tedaeo, from a marauding lion. In gratitude the King offers Telca's hand in marriage to Argolese but only if the strongman can slay a dragon which has been laying waste to part of his kingdom. Argolese kills the monster but when he returns he finds that Tedaeo has been overthrown and imprisoned, along with Telca, by a warlike people known as "the Demulus" who rule from a city inside a mountain. Argolese infiltrates this city but is captured and sentenced by Queen Ella to be pulled apart by elephants. Argolese survives this ordeal and Ella suggests an alliance between them. Argolese remains true to Telca but then Ella is killed by the jealous Melissia who becomes the new queen of the Demulus. With the aid of a diminutive ally named Barbar, Argolese frees the followers of King Tedaeo and then releases a lava flow into the city. Both King Tedaeo and the usurper Queen Melissia die in the turmoil but Argolese, Telca, and others escape out of the ... Written by Anonymous

"Hercules falls for the daughter of a deposed king whose kingdom is held in thrall by an evil queen. The Queen captures our hero and orders him torn apart like a wishbone by wild elephants. He survives, and the queen falls for him, but he is true to his love. The queen's subjects rise up in arms and her realm is engulfed in a volcanic eruption. Somewhere along the way, Hercules and his chubby comic companion fight off lions, bears, and an angry dragon," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

Re-titled "The Land of Darkness" for US TV viewing as two parts of "The Sons of Hercules" series (with a mighty catchy theme song). A patchily-edited lion fight signals, early in the running time, that you're not in for high quality product. With his golden beard, Dan Vadis (as Ercole aka Hercules) looks a little like the lions they used, and none are too ferocious. Silly John Simons (as Babar) is Mr. Vadis' gluttonous comic sidekick, and shapely Spela Rozin (as Telca) is the attractive leading lady.
