Rather dull
20 October 2003 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

First viewing: November 1984 / Second viewing: October 2003

Easily the weakest in the `Hammer House Of Mystery And Suspense' series, `A Distant Scream' is a rather incomprehensible and dull ghost story. David Carradine and Stephanie Beacham bring style and substance to their respective roles but the weak and predictable script does them no favours. Some bonuses - the rugged and beautiful coastline - not unlike the superior `Paint Me A Murder' and the sight of Stephanie in a variety of flattering screen shots. However `Kill Bill' this most certainly is not. 4/10
