What can one expect from this stable ? I just watched this again in a moment of supreme boredom, when all I wanted was a bit of televisual entertainment, and all that was offered was complete drivel. And for the Nth time, I was entertained.
Admittedly, I think that Peter Cushing was a criminally under-rated actor (check out Cash On Demand), but when you consider the films parts (admirable cast, plausible story, modern setting, and a fairly intelligent script), it's a great little effort.
Some moments are particularly sinister and atmospheric. Top marks all round really.
