Superb horror film from Hammer.
18 August 2008 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A small village in England which is terrorized by a horrible creature:part woman-part reptile.A captain Harry quickly discovers that several locals have been killed by mysterious snake bites,something which is also found to have been the cause of his brother death.It seems that Dr Franklyn's daughter Anna was abducted by a snake cult Franklyn was researching in Borneo and now periodically transforms into a snake creature."The Reptile" was actually shot back-to-back with another John Gilling's horror classic "Plague of the Zombies".The reptile attack pattern is even identical to the vampire's and the random killings are creepy enough.The film is quite moody and very subtle,so don't expect any gore.The plot moves swiftly and the direction is effective in creating suspense and menacing atmosphere.9 out of 10.
