The soundtrack of Armando Trovajoli also stands out, with jazz connotations that harmoniously match the fantasy. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
Bava's innovative color cinematography sparkles in its own right, but becomes even more impressive when you realize what a limited budget the director had. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Typical Hercules/Machiste nonsense not made better by the overrated Bava direction.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 3/4 -- An eerie, surreal vision of the afterlife as only Bava could have envisioned it. Full Review
From the Front Row
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The acting (aside from Lee) is wooden and the script extremely choppy, but the film is elevated by Bava's renowned eye for atmospherics. Full Review
The mightiest mortal challenges the wrath of the gods to save the woman he loves from becoming a hideous creature of the damned. Italian gore maestro Mario Bava is up to his usual tricks, transforming violence and death into something aesthetically interesting. The inimitable horror thespian Christopher Lee gives a typically stellar performance.
