Hercules in the Haunted World – Digitally Remastered
An eerie journey into suspense and adventure!
British bodybuilder Reg Park stars in Hercules in the Haunted World as the legendary mythological strongman and screen icon Christopher Lee performs as his nemesis, Lico. Hercules returns to Italy only to find that his lover, Princess Deianira (Leonora Ruffo), has lost her senses and that the only way to restore them is with the Stone of Forgetfulness, hidden deep in the realm of Hades. Hercules embarks on the perilous journey, unaware that Deianira’s own father, Lico (Lee), has teamed up with the dark forces of the underworld to stop him.

Surreal and eerie imagery in this particular film - it is set in Hades. This film there isn't much in the way listen to but a whole lot to see... sure there is dialogue but as long as you know why Hercules is in Hades you really don't have to listen - just veg out and watch the film - dig on the cool imagery. LOL. The story is ok enough though.
What is weird: Seeing Christopher Lee's face and hearing another actor dub his voice into English. I guess Lee had other things going on so he couldn't dub his own voice back into English(?) - guessing.
This film is just a fun fantasy adventure - one to kick back and enjoy!
The scenario, having little to do with actual mythology, has Hercules travelling to Hades in order to bring back 2 relics which have the power to restore his beloved (Leonora Ruffo) to her senses. She's been put in a trance by her evil guardian (Lee of course) who sends Hercules out on this errand in the hopes that he will fail. The scenes in the Underworld feature Bava at his most creative visually and his use of color and light and shadow give you an indication of what's to come. 3 time Mr Universe winner Reg Park makes an excellent Hercules (and not just in looks although he's really ripped to use 21st century terminology) and Christopher Lee's evil King Lyco is quite an imposing presence (even without his voice). Steven H. Scheuer, the first TV movie critic (before Leonard Maltin), said "In this movie, Hercules literally goes to Hell taking the advice of his non-fans". He must have seen one of the many bad TV prints out there for in a high quality version like this Fantoma release, this is the best Hercules movie (sorry Steve Reeves) and most of the credit should go to Bava. The DVD also comes with a number of special features including liner notes and rare stills.
