Mya Communication has released an excellent Italian Epic from the Early Sixties which resembles the old Hollywood sword plays from the thirties and fifties in 'THE REVENGE OF THE CRUSADER' aka 'GENOVEFFA DI BRANANTE', a film which starts out as corny but gradually builds to a tension of unease and dread. It stars two actors who would make their mark in Euro Horror cult classics : Alberto Lupo who was in the great guilty pleasure 'ATOM AGE VAMPIRE' aka 'SEDDOK-L'EREDE DI SATANA' plays the hero in a very subdued performance and Stephen Forsyth who appeared in Mario Bava's delirious giallo 'HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON' as the villain in a cold, cobra-like manner. Written and Directed by Riccardo Freda , it has many genre touches appearing throughout its running time almost capturing a film noirish style within its structure. There are great horrific Freda touches such as a chase through a forest during a thunderstorm and an extremely gritty for its time torture dungeon scene. The film has a great Errol Flynn/Basil Rathbone sword fighting climax between hero and villain as future action director Stelvio Massi has them going up shadowy corridors, down staircases,and dangling from parapets in beautiful chiarascuro photography. The rousing score by Carlo Rusticelli completes the mix and all in all, the film emerges as a brilliant dose of opulent derring do. Mya Communication releases a nice, crisp 1.85 transfer in Italian with English subtitles which is highly recommended for all action film fans.

The Revenge of the Crusader (1964) made me suffer deprivation of all interest in the first few minutes. It begins with Arabs and a few western crusaders in opening shots, fighting, the crusaders were really violent barbarians in these fake, inadequate sequences.

The First Crusade was a ploy to play for a stake in wealth and power. The truth is that the crusades were a response to the greed in barons and an attempt to reclaim Christian holy lands for profit.

Fundamentally, if you are an enthusiastic devotee of sword and Crusader epics, swashbuckling romances and imitation sword adventures, then The Revenge of the Crusader should be in accordance with your interests and right up your garden and something inspiring.

The Revenge of the Crusader is a, Spanish / Italian co-production that was co-written and directed by José Luis Monter whose only other notable film credit includes working as a assistant director on Riccardo Freda's, Romeo and Juliet. The screenplay for The Revenge of the Crusader was co-written by Riccardo Freda whose other notable films include The Horrible Dr. Hitchcock, The Ghost, Double Face, The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire and Tragic Ceremony. The score for The Revenge of the Crusader was composed by Carlo Rustichelli, whose other notable scores include The Whip and the Body, Blood and Black Lace, The Maniacs and Kill, Baby... Kill! Carlo Rustichelli composes an adequate and at times unremarkable score for The Revenge of the Crusader.

The plot is a Medieval tale about jealously, obsession and revenge that owes a lot of its style and structure to the Peplum film genre which was on its last legs around the time this film was being made. Visually the film is very appealing as picturesque landscapes and sound stage locations are used to their fullest. The action sequences are well done, even if they are very tame, especially by today's standards. Over the course of his career director Riccardo Freda had been replaced by other directors and his association with this film via the screenplay and some of the film's visual style during the opening sequences, suggests he might have been this film's original director.

The cast are more than adequate in their respective roles with the only stand out performance coming from Stephen Forsyth in the role of Golo. There is even a scene in The Revenge of the Crusader that foreshadows Stephen Forsyth's most famous role John Harrington, from the Mario Bava film Hatchet for the Honeymoon.
