Storyline

Jason, a member of a 1960's pop group, decides he needs a break at a country retreat. On the train he meets Judy, niece of Aunt Harris who owns the place with her husband Dr Storm and who are using the guests for surgical mind-control experiments. So while Jason and Judy are pretty quickly making out, they are just as quickly working out how to get away. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

it do has it's moments
22 October 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

It's being called a British Splatter classic, well for me it wasn't. It do contains a few bloody things and has an eerie feeling but it's in fact a bit low on suspense of horror.

Although having a few common names to see I was rather surprised more about the nudity shown for the time being. Vanessa Shaw (Judy) goes naked a few times but there was even some male frontal nudity to catch and that was in that time a not done. It do has some funny situations even as it wasn't intended to be funny. It do work out sometimes and it really had a British look especially of course due the accents used. It was also nice to see the clothing from that era and the way the trains looked back then and I can remember them taking those trains from Dover to London.

Towards the end when the monster is revealed it do deliver the goods. a strange flick with some nasty moments here and there, eerie atmosphere's and funny situations. Don't go to deep into the story because in fact they could run from the hospital easily, just have a look when they enter what supposed to be a hotel or mansion and are seeing a bed full of blood they decide to stay, go figure that one out. Not cult for me but due the names involved worth picking up.
