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>

Great piece of classic cult British 70's horror
11 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

A fine British 70's Horror with outstanding performances from both Gough and Askwith. A young guy decides to get away for a short spell at a relaxing health resort, only to discover that he becomes trapped and that it is no ordinary health resort! Very dark, very camp, a quite memorable film of it's era.
