By the Gods!

Tulia (Susy Andersen) and Aderbad (John Drew Barrymore) hypnotized Rhama (Ida Galli) into their cult in ROME AGAINST ROME (1964)

Another good film to watch on Halloween night. It doesn't have that many scary moments in it but it's super atmospheric and sinister, which Aderbad creating an army with deceased soldiers and turning them into zombie-like warrior, in order to topple Rome. A cool idea on a limited budget. I like it but I think it's one of the few PEPLUM film that could be remade into a great movie.

I'm not a fan of any remakes, except for a very, VERY few number (Carpenter's "The Thing", the 1970's "Invasion of the Body Snatches", for example.)
Any filmmaker remaking "War of the Zombies" (as I call it) will have to really "get" what the original movie tried to achieve, as pure entertainment. I find that almost every remake I've chanced to watch completely misses whatever qualities the original had.
