Alternate Versions

Embassy Pictures included this among a group of sword and sandal/mythological muscleman epics they put into a U.S. television syndication package called "The Sons of Hercules." The title was changed to "Fire Monsters Against the Son of Hercules." The beginning and ending scores were replaced with a theme song titled "The Sons of Hercules" which was used on all of the films in this syndication package. Some lines of the English dubbed dialog was replaced (using another actor) so that Maxus refers to himself as being a "son of Hercules." After the opening credits, a shot of clouds was inserted and a narrator would explain that the main character in each of the films was a "son of Hercules." See more »

Maciste In The Ice Age
15 December 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This particular peplum is a prehistoric item as Maciste goes back to the caveman era and helps out one tribe which has been dislocated by the Ice Age to settle on some new lands. It seems as though the other tribe that was there before isn't happy about these late arrivals hunting in their forests and want them removed.

Bodybuilder Reg Lewis of Mae West's review plays the legendary Maciste here. He's got to deal with all kinds of prehistoric beasts including a multi-headed hydra. One thing I swear I can't understand is how Maciste avoids pneumonia when he insists on going in his usual loincloth while everyone else is bundled up in animal skins. But his body is what the movie-going public is paying to see.

Nothing here you haven't seen in One Million BC and a few hundred other successors.
