Stu’s Views Episode 03: Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3-D


Hey gang, Stu here, back with another (overdue) episode of Stu's Views. This time, I return to the well (or should that be lake) and look at Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3-D, but I am not reviewing the film, instead I am reviewing the 3-D experience of it, from the disc in the Deluxe Edition box set.

This will be the last Friday the 13th episode i will do, nothing more needs to be said, and I want to move on to other things to share my view on.

Stu’s Views Episode 02: Friday the 13th Deluxe Edition Box Set



Hey gang, back with another episode of Stu's Views, on this one I look at the wonder that is the Friday the 13th Deluxe Edition Blu Ray Box Set. This isn't a review of the films, as much it is a rundown of all the things in the box, and if it is worth it's hefty price point.

Anyway, I'll be back with another episode in a couple of days. Life prevented me from getting this one done earlier - it happens.

Hercules in the Haunted World


This week, John and Hunter dive into the world of surreal Italian peplum films as they examine Mario Bava's hallucinogenic Hercules in the Haunted World, also known by many other titles, including Hercules at the Center of the Earth. The film stars Reg Park, a guy who played the title role a handful of times, and Christopher Lee, who is no stranger to fantasy and horror films, as well as a group of Italian genre mainstays. 

Topics include Bava's marvellous career, the various versions of this movies, the peplum genre and how it relates to other Italian genre booms and the country's cinema overall, Steve Reeves, and bodybuilders.
