Storyline

408 AD. The Visigoths led by Alaric invade northern Italy. At Ravenna, they have to battle, and they are stopped by the power of the Roman legions and the cunning of the emperor's sister, Galla Placidia. As the Goths lose many warriors in the cruel battle, Alaric vows bloody revenge. When the Visigoths return to Ravenna, Galla Placidia manages to send them against Rome instead, and remains alone in her home city with a handful of soldiers. The Visigoths exert their revenge on Rome, attacked and sacked, but then Placidia is captured by Ataulf. The Roman Emperor of the West, Onorius, sends Olympius, consul of Rome, to negotiate Placidia's freedom. It comes down to a single duel between the courageous consul and Ataulf. Ataulf loses, and is honor bound to let Olympius free one of the women prisoners. The consul chooses Sabina, his lawful wife whom he had married for political reasons but for whom he had become in love. Galla Placidia, who longed for Olympius, is therefore forced to ...

A kinky peplum!
16 June 2001 | by ZarSee all my reviews

For it's time - 1960 - REVENGE OF THE BARBARIANS is surprisingly erotic. Not only does it star voluptuous Daniella Rocca who oozes sex, it also contains two rather kinky scenes of females being whipped, the second even leading to a bit of s/m love-making, preceding Mario Bava's controversial film on that very subject, THE WHIP AND THE BODY, by two years.
