Movie Info

According to the Greeks, the Minotaur was a legendary half-man, half-bull who lived on Crete and demanded the sacrifice of humans, according to the scripters of this typical Italian costume drama, the real story is about twin sisters (both played by Rosanna Schiaffino), one evil and one pure-hearted. This story has the Minotaur as a secondary figure, all bull, who stands up on his hind legs to indicate his god-like status. The real hero is Theseus (Bob Mathias) who ultimately kills the Minotaur (for the Greeks, too) because he has fallen in love with the good sister and has to save her from being sacrificed.

Audience Reviews for Teseo Contro il Minotauro (Warlord of Crete) (The Minotaur)

This movie from 1960 has the beautiful Rosanna Schiaffino an Italian Beauty who appear in 45 movies from 1956 - 1977 . This movie is about the tribes living on the Island of Crete ( a beautiful place as I lived there for 3 years). Where the king sacrifices virgin women to the Minotaur (who looks a lot like the My Pet Monster in the 80's). The kings wife is dieing and on her death bed she tells the princess and father of her daughters twin sister and that she was hidden so she wasn't a meal for the Minotaur, so Rosanna plays two parts in this movie. The current princess wants her sister killer. All in all a 3 star Black & White sword and sandal movie.
