Trivia

When the crew needed dressing rooms they asked at Marmora Road which is opposite the cemetry where the house in the film is. Beryl Reid refused to "lower" herself to using an ordinary house as her dressing room and they had to get a caravan for her and park it in the street outside. See more »

Quotes

Sloane: [to Ed (having just murdered Ed's father)] You wouldn't put me away, would you?... I'm impressionable. Think what the nick would do to me. I'd pick up criminal connections.

Superb Gothic comedie-noire
4 January 2003 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

If you haven't seen this superb film - put it to the top of your "must view" list! Featuring two of Britain's best character actors, the late Beryl Reid and the late Harry Andrews, this scintillating black comedy is based on Joe Orton's wonderful play of the same name. Reid is marvellous as aging nymphomaniac Kath and Harry Andrews provides a superb foil as her roue brother Ed, who both attempt to secure the sexual services of their libidinous lodger, Sloane (played by Peter McEnery). Set in an eerie graveyard lodgehouse and with Alan Webb as their grubby father this brilliant film has gained cult status since its release over 30 years ago and is the only film I can watch - and enjoy - repeatedly.
