Fury of Hercules (1962) stars Brad Harris as the mythical muscleman. Herc’s ire is raised when he comes across the oppressed populace of a totalitarian country. The evil ruler (played by legendary French crooner Serge Gainbourg) seems to lead a charmed life: no one can touch him, but he can wreak plenty of havoc on those under his thumb. Hercules decides to put a stop to this, but it won’t be easy: it never is.
The evil Queen Tenefi demands a steady supply of young women be sacrificed to the God of Fire
Triumph of the Son of Hercules (1961) is an Italian sword and sandal movie. The mighty hero, Maciste, battles giant subterranean demons to save Anthea, the woman he loves, from being sacrificed to a volcano god. Evil Queen Tenefis, the sorceress who reigns over Memphis, the ancient capital city of Egypt, regularly raids the surrounding lands, rounding up virgins to offer to the volcano demons for ritual slaughter. Maciste arrives to put a stop to the holocaust, but Tenefis uses her magic powers to rob him of his memory and enslave him. When a mystic oracle gives Anthea the secret to breaking Tenefis’ spell over Maciste, the great warrior is free to lead a revolt against the queen. But the evil monarch turns the tables on Maciste by capturing Anthea, delivering her to the demons and certain death. In the bowels of the earth beneath the city, Maciste faces the greatest challenge to his superhuman strength.
