I know there were one or two films that had Carthaginian themes but this doesn't seem to be one of them. In the scene I saw, the hero denounced the rites as barbaric and the evil High Priestess gave a disdainful simper and commented on how little he understood.
I saw it on late late late TV around 40 years ago... would be fun to see the complete film at some point...

How many of these movies are available in decent looking transfers, in the right aspect ratio? The only ones I've seen are the Steve Reeves Hercules and Hercules in the Haunted World.

Hello everyone! I've written a peplum primer for the
Forces of Geek website. I emphasize the
fantasy movies. The article doesn't have
much of a thesis, since it's mostly descriptive. But I tried hard to make it the clearest and
most accurate sword-and-sandal primer available online.
Lots of great visuals too, and links to most of the films. Enjoy.
