I have to admit that it was these scenes of "kinkiness"--torture, deathtraps, and Feats of Strength--that got me into the Peplum genre in the first place. I think that the "kinkiness" seems to have come in as Peplum films got away from being based around stories out of Graeco-Roman Mythology, and settled into the "overthrow the tyrant" trope that came to dominate the genre. This trope would have meant much to Italian audiences of the time. They only needed to look into recent memory to think back to tyranny--although neither the Fascisti nor the Nazis ever got as "kinky" as the Peplum pictures did. And the Italian audiences only needed to look across the Adriatic at the tyranny that was going on in Yugoslavia under Tito, and in Albania under the Communists, to remind them of what tyranny was. I believe that another influence may well have been the comic strips or "fumetti", which were as popular in Italy as anywhere else. The frame grab used for "Swords Without A Country" doesn't tell very much.
Live-streamed torture of white teenager by black teens sparks racial backlash online
Alaina was 18 in March of , a college freshman in the middle of spring break. The following night, Alaina's friend hosted a party in her dorm. Other freshmen arrived early to get ready and put on makeup—"nerdy outcast" types, Alaina remembers of the tightknit group who were all acquainted with her host. Alcohol and Coca-Cola had been bought for mixing, but Alaina opted just for the Coke; she didn't feel like drinking that night. The party sprawled into two other adjacent dorm rooms, and suddenly Alaina felt her vision begin to blur.
