Photo of the Day

José Greci and Daniela Rocca in REVENGE OF THE BARBARIANS.

This is hands down Daniella's best role and she shines in it. Everything is great in this film: it's serious and yet it's very tongue-in-cheek. The cast is great and everyone, including José, gave good performances. This is the type of PEPLUM movie Hollywood would have never made. Only the Italians. Highly entertaining and recommended.

This movie has a great dance sequence with Daniela Rocca who is stunning and very sexy in it.

I am glad to see someone else who appreciates this movie. I wrote a long review of it on IMDb (one of only two user reviews).

It is absolutely top drawer and somewhat true to the actual history that it covers.

Daniela Rocca is sexy enough, but Evi Marandi in her turn as Sabina, her maidservant, is really enchanting and buxom.

Robert Alda is astonishingly unrecognizable as Atawulf, one of the titular barbarians, and he does a bang up job with the portrayal.

Great underappreciated peplum gem, no doubt about it.
