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 »

Black Sexual Comedy
30 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw EMr.S as a teenager who had just come out of the closet. As a child I was a fan of '60s horror films (Carradine, Cushing, et.al.) and black comedies (e.g., "No Way to Treat a Lady") and suspense/murder ("Eye of the Cat" or "Wylie", "What Happened to Aunt Alice?", "Daddy's Gone a Hunting", "Who Killed Teddy Bear?"). EMr.S, at least as I remember it after 20 years, combined those genres. The title character, handsome and bi-sexual, added the homo-eroticism that made for a very happy young gay movie fan indeed. It also led me to learn that the Brits were years ahead of Hollywood in the treatment of gay characters in movies, and I now count "Who Killed Sister George?" and "The Leather Boys" as other personal favorites.
