The menace of death's dreadful helm now displayed to our dear Queen Pasiphae. Receive, oh Minotaur, the sacrifice of our virgin youth in tribute to thy vast glory. For this, grant but this wish; Lord of Evil take not from us our queen's life.

Well made, good looking " Sword And Sandal" fantasy with famed athlete Bob Mathias in his sole acting role and he gets to show off some of his athletic skills.Rosanna Schiaffino is lovely in both twin sister roles and for it's time and aimed as a family entertainment. it is at times quite violent.The actual monster itself, isn't seen fully until the film's last four minutes and although it does not have the Bull head as in the legend, it is a passable effect. Entertaining film.
