A fire from the sky drops near by Samara. It deposits something evil. This evil horde demands human sacrifice. The queen of Samara (Jany Clair) is in cahoots with the evil ones in exchange for a chance to rule the world.

Only one man can save them by leading a revolt. Yep it is Hercules (Sergio Ciani.) I suspect the queen could smell Hercules and ordered a shower. Evidently it did not work so she will try to make Herc take a powder, and he would be mooning over her.

Looks like another full moon and time for a sacrifice when the sound is turned off it looks like they are all going to the showers. Will Herc help? If you look close Herc looks like Bob Vila of this old house fame, only a tad smellier.

O.K. one more time lets try sand blasting him.

Let my people go.

Format: DVD
In ancient Greece a race of evil aliens from the moon land on earth. For years they've terrorized the nearby city of Samar, demanding children for sacrifice. Now, the queen of Samar has made a pact with the moon men to conquer the world and become the most powerful woman alive. However when Hercules arrives he vows to put a stop to it all.

This is the second hybrid Peplum movie from director Giacomo Gentilomo (the first been Goliath and the Vampires), this time however he not only mixes both the Sword and Sandal and the horror genre but also that of the Sci-Fi movies as well.

I didn't really expect much when I went to watch this as a Sci-Fi Peplum didn't sound my cup of tea at all, but after watching the first ten minutes or so I actually started to enjoy it. Giacomo Gentilomo handles the film well even with its blatant low budget and poor special effects. The Moon Men themselves look ridiculous, their leader looks like a robot wearing a silver silk gown and his men are large rock creatures, that move slower than a old woman using a mobility walker.

Alan Steel (Sergei Ciani) is impressive as Hercules and as the athletic ability to pull off the exciting fight sequences but the best part of the entire film is when he is trapped and put between a large vice with huge spikes on either side, which resemble a Tyrannosaurus Rex's mouth and he has to try to stop it shutting. Another scene sees him fight against a Gorilla like monster with the fangs of a Sabre-toothed Tiger.

Overall a surprisingly good film that's enjoyable if you don't expect to much.

Fun and sometimes funny sword and sandal "epic" 25 July 2005
By Valnastar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film is actually a "Maciste" movie, but like most of the Italian films starring that character, the name was changed to one more marketable for distribution in the USA. In this film, Hercules must help the oppressed people of the kingdom of Samar overthrow their evil queen, who uses them as human sacrifices to her Moon Men masters (no, I'm not making this up, that really is the plot!). Treachery, mechanical traps, sword fights, funny monsters, actors in skimpy outfits and a convoluted scene of people struggling endlessly in a sandstorm are all hallmarks of this film. If you enjoy Italian sword and sandal pictures from the 1960's then you will love this stuff!

You may also be interested in seeing the MST3K version of this film. It is available in The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 7, wherein this film gets the treatment it deserves. This is one of the funniest episodes of MST3K ever ("sandstorm!"). Comments like, "This movie is equipped with airbags." at the sight of a voluptuous woman in a low-cut dress will have you howling with laughter. "I hate movies where the men wear shorter skirts than the women." says Crow. "Sandstorm, saaannnndstoooorrrrmm..." say the Mad Scientists. The sheer goofiness of the story, the costumes, and the fun action in the first part of the film, which is inexplicably followed by an endless scene of people struggling through a sandstorm near what should be the big climax, render this film a bit messy but loads of fun to watch. Wait till you see "Woodsy Owl." "Why is he wearing oven mitts?" asks Crow. You won't care; you'll be laughing too hard.

Whether you watch this film "straight" or with the MST3K treatment, it is silly, fun, and entertaining.

Alan Steel's moon in a short dress 30 Oct 2009
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
Note that the "top 100 greatest classic films" editorial appears on all RCE red box titles whether the movies are good, fair or laughably bad.

ABOUT THE MOVIE--
In that curious amalgam of the swords & sandals and sci-fi genres, HERCULES AGAINST THE MOON MEN, nicely-oiled Maciste (Herc) goes up against an evil queen who has made a pact with a group of alien visitors from Earth's satellite. Samara actively sacrifices her own people to try and awaken a lunar goddess and thus become the most powerful woman who's ever lived.

One thing is certain about our hero, Alan Steel: he looks darn good in that topless miniskirt while defeating Samara and her extraterrestrial allies.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.

(2.1) Hercules Against the Moon Men (France/Italy-1964) - Sergio Ciani/Jany Clair/Anna Maria Polani/Nando Tamberlani/Jean-Pierre Honoré

MOON MEN TRIVIANA--

After directing his 37th film, "Hercules Against the Moon Men," GIACOMO GENTILOMO quit the industry to devote himself to oil painting.

This is the fourth of seven outings for muscular SERGIO CIANI (aka Alan Steel) as the character variously known as Hercules, Maciste, Ercole or Samson.

French-born JANY CLAIR (Queen Samara) was a natural redhead. The last of her two dozen pictures played European theaters in 1965.

"Moon Men" is rated #96 in the 100 Worst Movies category at imdb.

"Hercules Against the Viewer" 5 Dec 2013
By Scott T. Rivers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Poorly dubbed Italian-French schlockfest starring the one-and-only Alan Steel (Sergio Ciani) as the immortal hero. Stretched out to a ridiculous 90 minutes, "Hercules Against the Moon Men" (1964) has few unintentional laughs and plenty of boredom. Veteran director Giacomo Gentilomo retired after completing this golden turkey . . . and who could blame him?

Amusing Movie, Terrible Transfer 1 Jan 2006
By Prosopopeia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Of all of the Italian sword-and-sandals movies, this has perhaps the silliest premise--in fact, the whole notion of Hercules fighting "moon men" only appeared in the English-dubbed version (the Italian original is about "Maciste," a strongman character in Italian movies back to the 1914 *Cabiria*, and there was nothing about aliens from the moon). It is moderately entertaining, and very low budget, as was typical for these movies. I say moderately entertaining, but only if you like this sort of thing, i.e., cheesy genre movies--if you're looking for another *Casablanca*, this isn't it. Most of the sword and sandals DVDs have very low-quality transfers: they chop up the original widescreen movies with pan-and-scan, and often look like they are using a video camera pointed at a TV screen showing a very faded and scratched print to make the transfer. This particular movie, however, has the worst transfer I have seen yet: few colors besides blue have survived, and there is no sharpness in the image at all. I am checking out the "special edition" DVD of *Moon Men* from somethingweird.com (Something Weird Video), which specializes in this sort of thing--they promise widescreen at least, and a "digitally remastered" version.

I've looked at the Something Weird version, and it is incomparably better (well, the visual quality is, at any rate!)--this is the double feature entitled "Hercules Against the Moon Men/The Witch's Curse" (a mere $17.99 here at amazon.com).
I knew something was up when I saw the name 'ALAN STEEL' 31 July 2010
By Music Lover in Omaha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I found this dvd in a used book store and picked it up just for the fun of it. The first thing that caught my eye was that the lead was named Alan Steel and it took about 1 second and a half to realize that was a name that was thrown on just for an American audience. So anyway, I didn't expect much, and in a way I was not disapointed for this is just not a very good movie. Why 4 stars then? Well, it was entertaining. Queen Samara was just awesome even if she wasn't very competent. The plot was kind of a mish mash of different things going on but in the end it boiled down to moon men helping Quenn Samara gain more power in exchange for her helping them bring the moon closer and arrange for her sister to help reanimate some other woman for a purpose I didn't get. Anyway once the plan falls apart and the Queen runs to her moon men bodies for help we discover what comes from an unholy alliance. And it's not that Samara didn't have a chance. I think if I broke my leg and had to carry an anvil I could move faster than the moonmen. Well, Hercules does eventually do battle with the moonmen and it's the mismatch of the century. This movie din't promise much but it was watchable, laughable and kind of fun. It's probably more fun if you have a few friends with you. We had a group of 8. That helped. You have to be in the right mood, but if you are, go for it. I'll stick by my 4 star rating.
