Rocky Horror: Episode Zero - Hercules (1958) and Hercules Unchained (1959)

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, and in Season 2, they're using THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW as the starting point!  

This week on EPISODE ZERO they venture back to ancient Greece, or at least Italy in the 1950s, for an epic double feature of HERCULES (1958) and HERCULES UNCHAINED (1959). These two superhero blockbusters put brawny men front and center, with glorious homoerotic subtext that can't possibly be ignored!

Give it a listen!
