Red roses for me
7 October 2003 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

First viewing: September 1984 / Second viewing: October 2003

I had vague memories of `The Sweet Scent of Death' lingering in my mind before I finally managed to see it for a second time tonight. The passionate coupling in the flower bed `ten years ago' and the slow-burning beauty of the character of Ann Denver, played by Shirley Knight. And how could I forget - the predominant appearance of roses. Red ones. Which are a recurring motif in this `Hammer House Of Mystery And Suspense' episode which builds the tension effectively to a passionate climax. 7/10
