1313: Hercules Unbound
($14.99 DVD, Rapid Heart)

If you’re a fan of softcore master David DeCocteau’s 1313 series—or just like watching chiseled boys running around in loincloths—this mythological installment will satisfy your cravings. Here, the mighty demi-god (Geoff Ward) is sent to a gladiator retreat where his arrogance turns off all of his fellow warriors, including Capaneous (Brandon Lamb), who plans on poisoning Hercules before the big wrestling match. TheDVD includes an audio commentary and an abundance of flesh, though more of the Southern California type than Mediterranean variety.
