‘Maciste all’Inferno is “devilishness in five acts”, set in a sensual, Baroque hell. (…) As usual Maciste works his magic by defeating a fleet of devils, even though in the end it is not his strength that wins but the a child’s prayers. Maciste all’Inferno is the last film in the series starring Bartolomeo Pagano, who ends with one of his best performances. (…) The new joint restoration by Cineteca di Bologna and Museo Nazionale del Cinema in Turin, includes the original intertitles that describe the underworld with Dantesque tercets.’ (Stella Dagna & Claudia Gianetto, Museo Nazionale del Cinema, Turin). Federico Fellini cites Maciste all’Inferno as an early cinematic influence. Live musical accompaniment is provided on the Australian Cinémathèque’s restored 1929 Wurlitzer Style 260 (Special) theatre pipe organ by organist David Bailey. Restored in 2009 by the Museo Nazionale del Cinema in Turin in collaboration with the Cineteca del Comune di Bologna.
