Film Review Online - 01 January 2010
Partners for many years, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert were the Executive Producers of the landmark syndicated series Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: Legendary Journeys, which both ran for six seasons. In 2002, Raimi and Tapert formed Ghost House Pictures which was dedicated to the development of high-concept genre films; their impressive roster of releases include, The Grudge, 30 Days of Night, Boogeyman and Drag Me to Hell.
This season they return to television with a new take on ancient Rome with the story of Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

Airing on the cable network Starz, the series holds nothing back in terms of violence, sexuality or language.
