Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Kim (Amanda Noar) brings the cups of tea out to the workshop after Noddy and Buzzer unload the bike from the van, she calls Noddy "Neil" by mistake - Neil Morrissey being the actor's name. He was also Amanda Noar's husband at the time.See more »

Great British Comedy Horror, 10 November 2007
Author: SgtSteenbeck from United Kingdom

Watching this movie is like going back in time; lots of blood 'n' guts, and all done in worst possible taste! However, unlike some of the earlier video-nasty 'slasher' films which often just tried to shock, this story unfolds with a sense humour, albeit not very subtle. Without giving too much of the story away, the title sums up the plot. Neil Morrissey is great as Noddy the dispatch rider, who buys a second hand Norton at a 'knock down' price, not realising it's possessed by a vampire demon. Other great performances from Amanda Noar as Kim, Michael Elphick (sadly missed) as garlic-breathed Inspector Cleaver and Anthony Daniels as the Priest ("Let's go and kick some bottom!"). This is surely Danny Peacock's finest hour when he appears as a talking turd! Also good to see Burt Kwouk as the owner of an unfortunately named Chinese Takeaway and Graham Padden as PC Ben E. Dorm. Great music score by Dean Friedman, who coincidentally also wrote the music for Boon (starring Michael Elphick and Neil Morrissey). It's a pity they don't make films like this any more!
