The Best Film Ever!
8 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well being a Sid James fanatic, I'm bound to say this film is good. What I can add to that however, is that it's the best film of over 140 he made. Sid is at his very best in this enchanting comedy/horror. Kenneth Connor also gives his finest performance in my opinion, and the two play off each other superbly. Add a great plot and fine work by the rest of the cast which includes Denis Price and Shirley Eaton and I can guarantee you'll thoroughly enjoy it. I've watched it hundreds of times over the years, and strangely each of my girlfriends over the years also thought it was brilliant - my current girlfriend and I watch it whenever we feel down to cheer ourselves up! Sids biographer said it was probably the best kept secret in his comedy career, adding the film as a whole is an under-valued masterpiece. I couldn't agree more. I won't go into the plot - all I'll say is if you haven't seen it, buy it, watch it, and I know you'll agree with me.
