Storyline

The ever intrepid world-trotting hunk of a man Herc (Hercules to those who are not his friends) saves a beautiful maiden from the hands of an evil creature. She takes him to her home, Atlantis. Herc kicks some butt and saves her from her mother who wants to kill her and from some scary looking blond guys but unfortunately the rest of the inhabitants are destroyed. Do not worry because Herc escapes along with his son, the maiden and an annoying midget. Written by Splinter <dasplint@nauticom.net>

Alternate Versions

For the Woolner Brothers U.S. release version, under the title "Hercules and the Captive Women", the original score has been replaced by a stock score selected by Gordon Zahler. Zahler used much of the same music he had selected for the U.S. release of Kurt Maetzig's _First Spaceship on Venus (1962)_ as well as portions of the score from Jack Arnold's _Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954)_ .

A nice peplum package that compares favorably with Bava's previous effort.
13 March 2003 | by TheVidSee all my reviews

Here's another Reg Park Hercules movie on a par with Mario Bava's superb earlier film HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD. Director Cottafavi lacks Bava's visual flair, but serves up enough kitsch atmosphere and set pieces to keep things fun. Park's lunky presence and lunkheaded demeanor make him the perfect foil for the elegantly stiff Fay Spain, as the obligatory beautiful-but-evil empress of Atlantis. Cheesy monsters, a dwarf, bouffant hairdos and some deliberately-dumb, dubbed dialogue all combine to make this top-notch kitsch for peplum afficionados. And, let us repeat, "all hail Uranus!".
