The filmmakers had an initial budget of £50,000, raised from a house sale, but then ran out of money and had to halt production. All attempts at funding in the UK exhausted, they went to Cannes to see if they could recruit some sponsors but all they came away with was a quote for their poster from John Waters. Undeterred, they continued advertising in many magazines and papers with the ad "Film company seeks money for completion of feature film". A businessman reader of "Private Eye", a satirical magazine in the UK, then coughed up an additional £27,000. Production was resumed almost a year after the first shutdown, only this time the leading man was unavailable and his part had to be re-cast and all his scenes re-shot. All in all, the entire production took roughly 3 1/2 years. See more »
The everyday tale of the McDonald family, (Father Gyles, his wife, two sons and a daughter... all called Ronald), who live their disgusting lives on their farm on an island off the coast of Cornwall. When sent to get their goat "seen to", the drunken Gyles (the superb Michael Balfour) does the job himself. The resulting birth of a half human half goat creature leads to all hell breaking loose. The tone of this film is not unlike the evil dead, dark but funny. The performances hit just the right note, and the special effects are surprisingly good. The humour is gross, but the film hits most of its targets. Sadly it was one of the last films Michael Balfour and Michael Ripper ever made. Still, not a bad way to bow out. Recommended.
