Director John Gilling's third and last film for Hammer. Gilling was reputedly very unhappy with the finished product and in later interviews would often cite it as his worst film. He would shift his work to TV immediately after, working on such shows as Department S (1969), The Champions (1968) and The Saint (1962), before making one final feature Cross of the Devil (1975). Gilling then retired and moved to Australia where he spent most of his time painting up until his death in 1984.
