Tonight's Saturday Night Special is a sword and sandal film that could actually also be considered a monster movie! It's called "Goliath And The Vampires," and it has got some extra weird stuff going on!
We've been through this before, whether you want to call him Maciste, Samson, or Goliath, it doesn't matter! What matters is that he's one bad cat just short of being super human!
This evil character looks like a cross between Obama and The Rock!
One of the first all-girl bands!
You've got to love a movie that moves seamlessly between evil monsters and nicely choreographed dance numbers!
This evil apparition is called Kobrak as played by Guido (HYPNOSIS, BARABBAS) Celano! He is a vampire of sorts! The gorgeous gal doing his bidding is Gianna Maria (HERCULES, LUST OF THE VAMPIRE) Canale as Astra!
Kobrak is not your typical vampire! He doesn't choose to suck blood from necks because he has other methods!
Time to go to the club, and another dance number!
Now this just might be the most interesting piece of music that was ever in a sword and sandal movie! I guess they got the sand part right because this sounds like it should have been in a movie called something like "Beach Blanket Babylon!" And no wonder since the music in the American version of this film was composed by Dungeon super hero Les (BEACH PARTY, BIKINI BEACH, MUSCLE BEACH PARTY, HOW TO STUFF A WILD BIKINI) Baxter! Electric guitars B.C., I love it!!
Time to prepare the wench for his majesty!
Now this is a great shot! It looks like a guy breaking into a strip mall!
These cats were called the Blue Men! I think somebody in Vegas owes Ambrosiana Cinematografica Productions a little cash!
How'd you like to have this funny little monster nipping at your heels?
I'm almost done, and I haven't even mentioned the star of the show, Gordon (GOLIATH) Scott yet!
If you want to know a lot more about Gordon, then read this post of mine for the movie
"Danger!! Death Ray!" Out of all the guys to play Tarzan in the movies, Gordon Scott was always my favourite!!
He got caught, and now Goliath's on a bummer!
But this guy is no quitter! Talk about bringin' down the house!
Tricky Freakin' Kobrak comes back disguised as Goliath himself, and tries to cause a bunch of trouble! (Shows you the depth of Gordon Scott!)
Time for Gordon to go mano a mano with himself!!
When stripped of his mask, Kobrak turns out to be one ugly sumbitch!
Peace Out Citizens!
Maciste For President!
