In this epic our hero travels to Egypt and finds his friends living under an oppressive queen. Chelo Alonso is excellent as the evil Smedes who rules her land using fear, intimidation and death.
There are many plot points that reminded me of old serials from the 40's including the use of a medallion that can make people into zombies.
Maciste finally leads a revolt and the evil queen is killed and then the land is returned to normal. The scenery for this film is also eye catching as this takes place in 11 BC Egypt, and looks very unusual for a peplum film of this kind.
The print from Mill Creek is very splicy, but it will have to do until someone decides to treat these films with the respect they deserve.
