Critic Reviews for Hercules in the Haunted World
Typical Hercules/Machiste nonsense not made better by the overrated Bava direction.
Audience Reviews for Hercules in the Haunted World
Update: I recently saw the great Fantoma DVD version with it's full aspect ratio and great colors. The dialogue is pretty wooden at times, like all Peplum. Luckily Lyco and Hercules avoid the worst of it. Many of the sets and lighting give the movie a psychedelic, horror feeling at times that makes this movie fun. There's still quite a few cheesy laughs here and there, such as the goofy rock golem scene, but overall it's a good film.
I found this movie a lot of fun, it's much better than other Hercules movies from the 60s, maybe because Bava directs, so it has a bit of a horror feeling to it? It does have a classical epic story, though, which is really cool. It was better than I expected.
Where would Hercules be without rocks? He uses them for everything! Great, scary zombie rising from the grave scene and chase through the closing cave walls. But seriously, Hercules throw another rock at something!
