I wish I had the time to archive everything. I've tried before but I find life makes it impossible. I have a huge movie collection but I couldn't tell you every movie I own to this day as I still have yet to complete a full list of it every time I try...inevitably I get sidetracked by other stuff going on in my life...

Son of Hercules in the Land of Darkness (1964): After slaying a dragon in hopes of winning the hand of a princess named Telca (Spela Rozin) who's super hot and curvy, Argolese (Dan Vadis) discovers her and her people have been enslaved and her village has been ransacked by a notorious war-like tribe called the Demulus or something like that. Apparently they practice cannibalism too. Argolese sets out to rescue her!

This was a pretty enjoyable Hercules style retread. This was edited down into a Sons of Hercules presentation for TV in the U.S. back in the day which had a catchy theme song. There's really very little new here as Argolese, son of Hercules does like Hercules and tangles with a lion (who's seems particularly passive), a bear (who's obviously trained), and a dragon not to mention battles the war-like tribe (the Demulus) before being captured. Then their evil queen decides to have him slain by being pulled apart by two elephants (usually in previous films horses played this bit) which makes for a visual spectacle to be sure. When that doesn't work, she begins to fall in lust with I mean Argolese only a rival has her eyes on the throne and hatches a plan to bring about her undoing. Meanwhile, Argolese and a timid comic relief sidekick played by John Simons set out to rescue Telca and her people and set out to destroy the Demulus' underground kingdom inside a mountain surrounded by lava from a nearby volcano. Simons is actually quite good in his role even if it does seem a bit silly that he's so successful at times. Actually his presence in this reminds me of the later 90s TV series which featured lots of comic relief too and often had war-like marauding tribes as villains. Enjoyable escapist fantasy adventure fare but there's very little here that's really new. Dan Vadis does alright in the lead but isn't quite as charismatic as his predecessors. Still surprisingly fun so I'll give it ***1/2 out of ***** stars.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
