Synopsis by Robert Firsching

Buffed bodybuilder Steve Reeves, in his first sword-and-sandal epic since Hercules, stars as Emiliano, who seeks revenge when his village is destroyed and his father killed by marauding barbarians. Taking the name "Goliath," Emiliano straps on an animal mask and fur-covered loincloth for his raids on the enemy camps, as well as romancing the chieftain's daughter (Chelo Alonso). More brutal than most similar films, this exciting adventure from veteran director Carlo Campogalliani also features Livia Lorenzon and a brief appearances by King Kong star Bruce Cabot.
