Kenny Everett, I feel was someone who didn't get the recognition he deserved. A character actor, I feel he should of done more films, so when seeing this film, it's a thankful presence to see him here, in something's he's right at home with. I've always found this movie, very entertaining, or addictively entertaining, as I did with a lot of 80's movie. There's a lot of gore here, yes, with the equal amount of smart humor, and that's the movie's winning speciality, where an interesting twist comes into play towards the end. Everett and Stephenson (so much fun here) join these other 4 other scientists (including a hunky American that I liked and an English hottie) at this manor where 18 people were bludgeoned to death, by strange circumstances. This movie is a lot of fun where Stephenson and the late Everett are so watchable, here's a comedy that's a winner. 80's cheese, like we loved. A rare Brit, horror comedy treat, that stands alone, and rightly so.
