'''''Hercules Against the Moon Men''''' is a 1964 SwordAndSandal movie. The movie, like ''ColossusAndTheHeadhunters'', isn't actually a ''Film/{{Hercules}}'' movie but a ''Maciste'' movie, with [[MarketBasedTitle the name changed for US release.]]

Somewhere in the ancient Mediterranean world, a ship from the Moon crashes into a mountain, and the occupants insist on getting human sacrifices at what is now the "mountain of death". Enter our hero, "Hercules," played by Alan Steel. Hercules helps free the sacrificial victims, but the Queen of Samar is in league with the Moon Men now, and sends her armies out to stop Hercules. Swordfights and [[PantyShot buffalo shots]] ensue. Then, the Moon Men reveal their master plan to revive their dead queen and merge the Moon with the Earth. Can the Herc get to the mountain in time to save the girl and the world?

!!''Hercules Against The Moon Men'' provides examples of the following tropes:
* ButNowIMustGo: And Agar goes with him.
* FakeDefector: According to Hercules movie law, Queen Samara tries slipping Herc a LovePotion. In ''this'' film, Hercules is GenreSavvy enough to only fake drinking it and pretend to be BrainwashedAndCrazy for long enough to seduce the location of the Moon Men's lair out of Samara.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Samara
* PantyShot: Hercules wears nothing but a tunic in most scenes, leading to plenty of these.
* ShirtlessCaptives: Hercules wears an exomis-style tunic for most of the film, but after being captured by Samara he is next seen shirtless and in chains and then placed in a bizarre torture machine.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Agar when she changes from her boy disguise into her normal clothes. [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 Crow's]] comment about it is the TropeNamer.
* SurprisinglySuddenDeath: Herc and Agar's father are moseying through a secret tunnel, then suddenly WHAMMO! spikes shoot out of the wall to [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impale]] the old guy.
* TakeOverTheWorld: What the Moon Men plan to do with the power from all their sacrifices.
* YouHaveFailedMe: The Moon Men get fed up with Samara's failed attempts to kill Hercules. Rocks Slam Dance, Samara Dies.
