Strange Film and Awful Accents
29 May 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a strange but nonetheless entertaining film starring a pre Dracula Christopher Lee with a truly terrible mid Atlantic accent.This is matched only by a lame attempt at such an accent by Peter Grant in his sole film appearance.There is a scene in a box at a concert where Lee turns to his girlfriend and bares his teeth in a smile,where i thought surely he cant be about to bite her neck.The film becomes extremely strange with the appearance of Alexander Knox as the psychoanalyst.Lee relates to him his nightmares.At the end we learn that these are not nightmares but they are actual events.Incidentally i believe the 2 exterior shots are of Church Walk Hampstead and Kilburn High Road.it looks like the Gaumont State in the background.
