Editorial Reviews

Get ready for a bevy of buxom Amazons, hideous ape men and gigantic dragons! When the incomparable Steve Reeves was cast as the mythic muscleman HERCULES, a screen icon and an entire film genre was born! Then Mark Forest stars in MOLE MEN AGAINST THE SON OF HERCULES. Maciste (Forest) goes underground to discover the terrifying kingdom of the Mole Men, who are ruled over by the beautiful but wicked Queen Alismoyab (Moira Orfei). Also starring body builder Paul Wynter, this is one of the wildest and weirdest of the Italian beefcake fests.

In HERCULES THE AVENGER, Reg Park returns as the mythological son of Jove who undertakes a journey into the nether regions battling zombies and monsters along the way to rescue his son. Then it’s the fantastic HERCULES AND THE BLACK PIRATE, a weird time-travel adventure a la The Witch’s Curse.

Hercules and Androcles (Ettore Manni), the King of Thebes, venture to Atlantis, where an evil queen (played by cult favorite Gay Spain) has hatched a diabolical plan for world domination in HERCULES AND THE CAPTIVE WOMEN. And Manni is reunited with Reg Park in HERCULES, PRISONER OF EVIL. Helmed by famed Euro-horror director Anthony Dawson (aka Antonio Margheriti), an evil sorceress seduces Hercules and turns him into a terrifying monster in this film that combines the best elements of both horror and Sword and Sandal genres.

Starring as Hercules in HERCULES AND THE PRINCESS OF TROY is Gordon Scott, who after appearing in several films as Tarzan, became one of the most popular and prolific of the Sword and Sandal stars. In the muscle-bound saga ATLAS IN THE LAND OF THE CYCLOPS, Gordon Mitchell (in his film debut) must battle an evil queen (the sexy Chelo Alonso) to save a baby descended from Ulysses.

This set also includes an extra-brawny bonus feature starring Richard Harrison: GIANTS OF ROME.

Customer Reviews

I tried it on 3 different DVD players, a portable DVD player and my laptop and got the same problem.

I'm afraid I'll have to pass, it's a pity Image could'nt have tried a little harder on this one, it really would have been worth the effort.
David Orme
I will also say that you really have to be a die hard 1960s Hercules or Sword & Sandal fan to really like every single one of them.

I bought this nicely priced set at a retail store for $15. I took a chance on it because it was distributed by Image Entertainment/Retromedia and I have never had a bad disc by these companies. I however hate to say it but at about the 16.20 mark on Hercules, Prisoner of Evil the film stutter skipped and then froze. I tried it on 3 different DVD players, a portable DVD player and my laptop and got the same problem. I got a replacement and it did it again. My third copy just stutter skipped but did not freeze. Sick of dealing with the problem I just got my money back. The clerk at the retail store said they have been getting a number of returns on this set and are actually thinking about taking it off the shelf (!?!). I don't know if this is widespread problem but talking to friends and relatives that also have bought the set I have found that theirs at least had the stutter skip.

For the price of this set it is still worth it to many as it is only one film in the set that is defective. Still I just want to warn you that you will likely get a set that has a bad stutter skip in Hercules, Prisoner of Evil or worse it freezes.

These are re-releases of the previous RetroMedia titles. Image Entertainment now handles the RetroMedia line. Sad to say all 4 discs are the exact same discs that have been available before. Quality is sadly lacking.

I was REALLY excited about this release, until I started to go into the details. (1) A Hercules set WITHOUT Hercules Unchained, this has been crying out for an anamorphic transfer for donkeys' years. It's great if the other titles are in 2:35:1, and if Unchained was there, I would have bought it just for that, but alas, it was not to be and (2)a small point, the cover art is actually from Goliath and the Barbarians, which is NOT in the collection. I'm afraid I'll have to pass, it's a pity Image could'nt have tried a little harder on this one, it really would have been worth the effort.

It took me back to the good old days, when Saturday afternoons belonged to the "Sons Of Hercules". They may not be the best written movies on earth and I don't think any of them are worthy of Academy awards, but they sure are entertaining.

Any one familiar with this genre of "sword & sandals" will thoroughly enjoy this one. And who isn't a fan of the
immortal Steve Reeves. Worth the purchase.
