By the Gods!

Reg Park turns into a monster in HERCULES, PRISONER OF EVIL (1964)

This is such an odd entry in the PEPLUM genre. The original title was URSUS AND THE TERROR OF KIRGHIZ, which is not very marketable. Even if there were Ursus movies prior to this one, it's so different than the other Ursus movies that there's really no connection. And it certainly is not a Hercules story. The film is in some sort of strange limbo. I feel a new title is in order. Many scenes were taken from THE SEVEN REVENGES (1961). To make things even more bizarre, scenes from this film were edited into a porn film in the 1970s called THE EROTIC ADVENTURE OF URSUS!!!

Coming soon to all PEPLUM TV channels!
