Hercules vs. Moloch (Italian: Ercole contro Moloch also released asd 'Conquest of Mycenae is a 1963 Italian/French international co-production peplum film written and directed by Giorgio Ferroni and starring Gordon Scott.[3][4][5]


A deposed prince arrives in a city ruled over by a cult that worships an evil monster as a god. He becomes a gladiator and his feats in the arena earn him a place on the queen's royal guard, but secretly he plots to lead a revolution and destroy the creature that has enslaved the people.



Hercules vs. the Moloch was released in Italy on December 21, 1963.[2] It was released in the United States by December 15, 1965.[2]


From contemporary reviews, the Monthly Film Bulletin reviewed a 91 minute dubbed version.[1] The film stated that the plot was "completely routine" and its ending was "over-extravagant", the "Herculean hero is at least credited with a distinct measure of intelligence" noting that "the question of sheer physical strength is reated ambigulously [...] There is no penny-pinching in the staging; hundreds of extras are used for the big battle scenes, which really do succeed in giving the effect of an army and not merely a platoon."[1]
