(955) MINOTAUR Wild Beast of Crete (1960) Peplum Monster
(955) MINOTAUR Wild Beast of Crete (1960) Peplum Monster

"The Gargantuan Lusts of a Half-Man Half-Beast"

Original Italian Title TESEO CONTRO IL MINOTAVRO (Teseo Against the Minatour)

director: Silvio Amadio
starring: Bob Mathias Rosanna Schiaffino Alberto Lupo Rik Battaglia Susanne Loret Nerio Bernardi

In ancient Crete, a monster called the Minotaur (half bull, half man) is sedated with constant virgin sacrifices from the evil ruler King Minos. A Greek prince named Teseo is determined to help the oppressed community, kill the monster and stop the sacrifices.

Although he appeared in numerous American television shows, here is USA Olympic Gold Medal winner Bob Mathias in his only starring role for a feature film. In the late '60s, he ran for congress and became a member of the US House of Representatives from California for three terms, 3 January 1967 - 3 January 1975. He then became the Deputy Director of the Selective Service board in 1976. Mr Mathias died from throat cancer at age 75 in September 2006.

After this debut feature, filmmaker Silvio Amadio took his projects into a more perverse direction. He is best known for two Rosalba Neri AMUCK! and A SMILE BEFORE DEATH. In 1974, Amadio helmed THE MINOR and - as a result - he became obsessed with actress Gloria Guido. He would direct her next five films before they split their ways. Mr Amadio died from a heart attack in August 1995 at age 68.

An Italian film in English language; widescreen format (16:9), uncut (92 minutes), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT; extras include selected theatrical trailers.
