A very entertaining and seemingly original British B Movie., 16 September 1999
Author: David Kay ( from Borehamwood Herts

A clever, entertaining and well acted British B Movie. It holds your attention from start to finish. An hour film with plenty of intrigue. The film stars some of Britain's finest actors and goes some way to prove that British B Movies in the 50's and 60's ( for me ) provide great entertainment.
