Fun but flawed, 23 November 2006
Author: Steamcarrot from Much-Snogging-On-The-Green, East Yorkshire

Firmly set in the groovy swinging sixties of London this gloriously bonkers film, if nothing else, will have you glued to the screen to find out what the hell is going on. Part psycho film, part mad scientist film, part espionage thriller, part sci-fi it seems like two unconnected films stitched together, but it does come together at the end..well kind of.

There's a madman loose, trawling London's hippest night-club and killing young girls, who are subsequently found drained of blood. So the police, led by Alfred Marks (who must have gone to same police academy as Donald Pleasance's character from Death Line), set up a honey trap; meanwhile, somewhere else, some Russian/nazi types seemingly hell-bent on creating a 'master race' are going round the countryside shooting people, delivering Vulcan death grips and dabbling in a spot of torture. While this is going on, a jogger who collapsed at the beginning of the film, is disappearing limb by limb in a strange hospital, tended to by a mute nurse. Add to this Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing (in a very brief role), vats of acid, a long car chase, the police seemingly constantly getting their heads kicked in by the vampiric psycho, Yutte Stensgaard (hooray!), the title song being sung over and over by Amen Corner in the night-club scenes and the mad scientist denouement just before his icky demise because of the police pathologist who didn't back off from the investigation when ordered by the government and you have it. It comes over at times as an adult version of the Avengers. This could have been a cult classic but somehow it falls short and the action scenes are crying out for a director with a surer hand and some snappy editing. Also there doesn't seem to be a lead character as the director switches between story threads at the drop of a hat and Cushing, Lee and Price are criminally wasted. But for all that it's a fun film and well worth a watch should you get a chance .
