Trivia

David Hemmings had clearly forgotten the climax to this film because in his autobiography he describes a totally different ending to the film. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits, when the names of actors playing the schoolboys appear they are listed in alphabetical order according to the character's surname. This is so as to resemble the class's register. The character of 'Zigo' appears at the very end but as he never appears in the film, instead of an actor being credited, it merely says "Zigo....Absent". See more »

'stand-out performance from the ever-genius David Hemmings!'
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is an absolute gem, and why this masterful chiller remains so obscure is beyond me! 'Unmann Wittering & Zigo' is masterfully directed by John Mackenzie, with truly chilling performances from a sublime young cast and yet another stand-out performance from the ever-genius David Hemmings. This profoundly disturbing film can sit quite uncomfortably alongside 'village of the damned' & 'the wicker man' as one of British cinema's all-time great horror films. A razor-edged shocker with a palpably disturbing atmosphere; as this genuinely creepy film unfolds, director, Mackenzie ratchets up the penetrating unease with consummate skill; including a number of genuinely terrifying sequences (The ICA or NFT really should give this masterpiece a screening) Highly recommended.
