Former big-screen Tarzan Gordon Scott appears in one of many sword-and-sandal epics featuring muscle-bound, mini-skirted hero Maciste (aka Goliath, cinematic kin to Steve Reeves's Hercules), sworn to protect the helpless with his strength and swordsmanship. In this horror-tinged outing, the mythical hunk comes to the rescue when an immortal, shape-shifting vampire turns an entire island village into legions of shuffling zombie slaves. Our none-too-bright hero discovers nearly too late that the undead foe has taken on his appearance, which understandably complicates matters. Also known as Goliath and the Island of the Vampires, or simply The Vampires, in its U.S. release.
