Trivia

Mark Forest's bare-chested torture scene, in which he's spreadeagled beneath a cluster of dangling, about-to-drop spears, may have inspired two similar scenes. Robert Culp, in the 1967 episode I Spy: A Room with a Rack (1967), and 'Sam J. Jones', in the 1987 movie, Jane and the Lost City (1987), underwent similar ordeals. See more »

User Reviews

A lackluster Italian muscleman "epic" responsible for one of the greatest exploitation movie posters of all time.
13 March 2003 | by TheVidSee all my reviews

This Mark Forest (Lou Degni) vehicle is par-for-the-course peplum, but American International was able to pack them in at the boxoffice with the stunning poster accompanying this film's US release. If you're into movie poster art, then look for this piece on Ebay; it's the definitive exploitation teaser for this genre.
