By the Gods!

Mireille Granelli, as Amiko, in HERCULES - PRISONER OF EVIL (1964)

Amiko is central to the movie's story, which is a combination of horror / gothic / PEPLUM. It reminds me of a FRIDAY THE 13TH type of film, lots of shots in the forest at night with a monster lurking about. Originally, the hero of this movie was Ursus but was renamed Hercules for its English release. Ursus or Hercules, it doesn't really matter since he's almost secondary to the story. Reg Park plays Hercules, who's controlled by witch Amiko, who turns our hero into a monster. Mireille made two other films before retiring from the world of cinema. I recently completed a Fan Dub of this and uploaded it to PEPLUM TV.
