    As you know this is the "greatest" Hercules movie ever made :evil:

    For horror fans this movie is also a must have since:

    The Director is Mario Bava and Christopher Lee plays the villian and it has a horror theme, so it counts damn it :evil:

    There are a few DVDs of this film out but only one is uncut.

    Below is the cover of the uncut version:

    Bought this the day it came out and paid near full MSRP $29.99 for it; and while it's much cheaper now, I've no regrets. IMO, it's the best audio/video presentation of any Bava film on disc and it's gotten a lot of play in my house. It's a treasured DVD of mine -- a highlight of my Bava collection. I heartily second the recommendation! Pure viewing bliss... ahhhh...

    I'm not a Bava fan, but that cover art is spectacular. I may have to check it out.

    I sold off my copy a year ago for considerably more than I paid for it when it was a new release. It's a neat movie but nothing I needed to keep.
