ITV often used to show these short, British B movies during the early hours but have not done so for some time. Naked Fury was one of these I taped and found it quite good, despite reading bad reviews in TV listings. Most of these got bad reviews and are rather underrated.
A gang of burglars steal a load of money and knock out the night watchman in the process and he later dies in hospital of his injuries, which now also makes them murderers. They also kidnap his daughter as she seen them rob the place. They take her back to their hideout in a derelict and unsafe building and hold her there along with the stolen money. After several unsuccessful attempts to escape and one of the burglars attempt to rape her, the building collapses and all the burglars are killed and the young woman is rescued by fireman at the end.
Naked Fury is shot well in black and white despite the low budget and is quite atmospheric at times.
The cast includes Kenneth Cope (Carry On Matron, Night of the Big Heat), Leigh Madison (The Giant Behemoth) and former EastEnder Tommy Eytle (he played Jules Tavernier in the soap).
Though not brilliant, Naked Fury is a good way to spend an hour one evening. Quite enjoyable.
Rating: 2 and a half stars out of 5.
