“ This is ok flick that I would probably completely forget except for Dyanne Thorne (from the Ilsa movies) plays the role of a gorgeous cold hearted psycho so believably it makes it kind of hard to forget. Actually Peter Carpenter and the other actresses were pretty good too except or having to sit through so much of him singing. I guess the biggest problem though was the overall plot because neither of the murders were pre-meditated really and in the end it was kind of hard to care about any of the characters. I never did understand the point of all those dream sequences the main character had about killing women either.

All in all, the plot didn't really have much point and their wasn't even much terror. meh. ” - tim_clarke-sanche

“ A pretty good British horror flick about necromancy. It starts off with a satanic ritual sacrifice carried out by a coven and a guy in a goat mask and within minutes we see the first murder. The movie kind of slows down after that and the story begins.

In some respects it seemed like they were going for a more psychological film but kinda failed in that regard. I liked the movie though, it was almost some where between trashy and classy in a way that only a British film can be. ” - tim_clarke-sanche
