Frightening -to think even in the days of no budget quickies this got made...
5 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I caught this on late night TV yesterday, and if nothing else, it served as a timely reminder that dreadful films are nothing new.

We may shake our heads in wonder at the awfulness of some of the films that get made today -but Crucible of Terror attests to the fact that in amongst the classics of the '70's, they were also making stuff like this.
