Ancient Greek muscleman Maciste turns up in 17th century Scotland to battle the forces of supernatural evil and save an innocent woman accused of witchcraft. As the film opens, a witch is burned at the stake. She invokes a curse on the land and promises to someday return. Fast forward a hundred years to the 17th century, where the townspeople are up in arms because a female stranger (with the same name as the witch) has made a home in their community. They have captured the young woman with her husband and are ready to burn them at the stake. At this point, unexpectedly, a man - clad only in a loincloth - rides into the village [he's superhero Maciste and is not bound by traditional barriers of time and space]. He has come to save the wrongly accused and restore order to the village. Maciste discovers that to save them, he must destroy the original witch's curse. And to do that, he must jump into a pit. journey to Hell and force the witch to revoke the bad vibes. It's not an easy venture.

He was generally credited as the man who 'brought style to exploitation cinema' but is probably best known for discovering (and training) Mario Bava. Riccardo Freda died from a stroke at age 90 in December 1999.
