Hercules and the Tyrants of Babylon – 1964 – Italy

Hercules goes to Babylon to rescue his enslaved girlfriend, the queen of Hellenes (a.k.a. Greece). In the process, he frees a legion of slaves and destroys the city. However, Hercules and the Tyrants of Babylon actually has little to do with Hercules. Instead, the plot focuses on the machinations of the Babylonian royal family and the meddling king of Assyria.

Queen of Blood

Queen of Blood – 1966 – United States

Queen of Blood is an odd mix of creature-horror and space-faring sci-fi by American International Pictures. Director Curtis Harrington also made the dumb Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet (1965) under the pseudonym John Sebastian. Queen of Blood and Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet both feature John Cline’s beautiful otherworldly title paintings. Cline has no other credits that I’ve found, but his intricate watercolor work is highly original. The cast of John Saxon, Basil Rathbone, and Dennis Hopper isn’t shabby either.

Arkoff of American Releasing Corporation (later American International Pictures). The Beast’s production values are predictably skeletal, but the premise has imaginative flair courtesy of scripter Tom Filer who never wrote a screenplay before or since.

The Comedy of Terrors – 1963 – United States

Produced by Samuel Z. Arkoff, written by Richard Matheson, scored by Les Baxter, and starring Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, Basil Rathbone, and Rhubarb the Cat (a.k.a. Orangey—feline thespian of This Island Earth, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Village of the Giants)—The Comedy of Terrors is a potpourri of high profile talents. Predictably, it’s good too.
