Storyline

When Chuck Spillers is released from prison, he tells his wife Annie that he had been visited by an old man, Martin Blueck, along his sentence for robbing a safe, and Blueck had given some money for him to help a fresh start in life. On the next morning, Chuck pays a visit to Blueck in his pet shop to thank the support and is invited to work for him feeding his animals in his private zoo while he is traveling. Blueck explains that he trains animals, conditioning then to obey some signals. A couple of days later, Chuck sees a safe in the store, and decide to open it, being trapped in a weird situation and disclosing the truth about the sadistic Blueck. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Effective TV outing
15 August 1999 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

This installment from the Hammer House of Horror is fairly effective. The plot concerns a recently released prisoner trying to find work, who falls under the spell of peter Cushing. Needless to say, things don't work out smoothly!

There is a tiny cast of only 5 named characters, but this helps with the claustrophobic feel of the story. Peter Cushing is at his purring best as a pet shop owner with a mysterious past. On the whole, a rewarding, if unchallenging experience.
