Queen Demeter (Rosalba Neri) is using fear and violence to rule Mycene, and she even strikes fear in the neighbouring domains, demanding hostages from each domain in exchange for a treaty. But these hostages are not treated as hostages but are either sold into slavery or sent to the catacombs of Demeter's son Moloch, a horribly disfigured young man who hides his face behind the mask of a beast and relishes in hunting down and killing defenseless humans in his catacombs - and he is of course quite mad, yet his mother has declared him a god ...

Still, Glaucus (Gordon Scott), the son of the king of a neighbouring realm, decides to do something against Demeter's evil rule ... so he becomes one of Demeter's slaves, in order to try to attack her from inside Mycene. Soon enough, he has won the affections of Demeter and is her new darling who is even promised freedom and a military rank ... but then he crosses paths with evil commander Penthius (Arturo Dominici), who has designs on Demeter's kind-hearted stepdaughter Medea (Alessandra Panaro) - and Glaucus not only loses his freedom but is also laid in chains (which he is of course able to break at any given moment) and forced to fight in gladiator games - but he has also won the heart and ear of Medea, who promises him to help with the revolution, as does Demeter's general Euneos (Michel Lemoine) who has long planned to overthrow Demeter ...

Ultimately though, Glaucus is thrown into a hole to rot and Medea is to be sacrificed to the god and when tht fails she is handed over to Moloch as a toy - but too late, Euneos has already started the revolution, the army of Glaucus' father attacks Mycene from the outside, Glaucus is able to escape his hole ... and ultimately both Moloch and Demeter lose their lives and good triumphs over evil.

 

Given the number of peplums (= Italian sword and sandal movies) that were produced in the early to mid 1960's, Ercole contro Molock is nothing special. That aside however, the film isn't too bad either (provided of course you like peplums that is), as a few bizarre ideas - like the masked monster living in the catacombs beneath the city - make it worthwhile nevertheless, so if you don't expect anything too great you might as well be entertained.

 

By the way, despite the Italian as well as the English title suggesting otherwise, this is not a Hercules-film, the hero Glaucus only adopts this name to not immediately be recognized as a king's son.
