No good Gothic horror, 27 February 2007
Author: The_Void from Beverley Hills, England

On the face of it, this film would seem to have a lot going for it. First up we've got a role for the great Barbara Steele, and second of all the director is Michael Reeves; the same man behind the horror classic Witchfinder General. However, The She-Beast can only be described as a colossal failure. Naturally, this movie is pure cheese; but it's not enjoyable cheese as the film isn't merely crap - it's painfully crap. The story is sadly boring, the special effects are terrible; the acting is rubbish, the direction is rubbish and there is very little in the way of redeeming elements. Not even Barbara Steele can save this film, as she only appears for a few minutes and Michael Reeves doesn't make the best use of her during this time. Interestingly, Reeves used a big horror star in every one of his four films; Witchfinder General has Vincent Price, The Sorcerers featured Boris Karloff and Castle of the Living Dead has Christopher Lee; but unfortunately, the female horror icon has been sold short as The She-Beast is absolute garbage, and I seriously see no good reason to waste your time with it. Not recommended.
