DAYS OF FURY was another of the countless obscurities picked up for a quick video release in the UK in the early days of home video. It's a FACES OF DEATH-type production full of newsreel footage of seal culls, motorcycle crashes, burning buildings, earthquakes and so on, hosted by Vincent Price! Yes, the same Vincent Price who appeared in all those classic chillers. I can only assume he was short of pocket money back in 1980. This was released in Britain by the same company who put the Christopher Plummer-helmed freakshow BEING DIFFERENT on the shelves, which is probably very telling. There's some impressive footage here as well as the usual gratuitous shock clips (lovers of cute baby seal cubs should look away NOW!), but it's little more than exploitation dressed up as education. Now, back to Mr Price. Don't remember him this way...check out THEATRE OF BLOOD instead, in which the great man effortlessly spoofs himself whilst remaining quite terrifying.
