Since director Kostas Karagiannis (here credited as Costas Carayiannis) had made two excellent and stylish giallos a couple of years previously, Death Kiss and Tango of Perversion (both 1974) he was evidently an acomplished filmmaker, although the vast majority of his output (173 films in a 30 year career) were only released in Greece.

Tourists are being abducted to be sacrificed to a Minotaur worshipping cult, led by the local Bishop (Cushing). An Irish priest tries to put a stop to proceedings in this Hellenic take on Captain Clegg, but despite some nice set (and poster) design, the pace is generally leaden.
