Summary: Maciste's (Gordon Scott) village is pillaged by pirates. All the men of the village are brutally murdered, whilst the women are taken captive. As Maciste attempts to rescue his sister (who was amongst those kidnapped) from the clutches of Sultan Abdul (Mario Feliciani), who is controlled by Kobrak (Guido Celano), an evil vampire being, he soon uncovers a diabolical scheme. Kobrak needs blood for an army of zombie-like faceless soldiers he is creating to take over the world. Along the way, Maciste must use his strength to overcome hordes of Kobrak's human guards before a finale where the zombie army is unleashed as his lair is penetrated. The climax sees Maciste facing himself in a battle of brute strength, as Kobrak has assumed the muscle man's identity in an attempt to make him the ultimate slave.
