Did You Know?


When Graham is slowed down by the police, a white Mini is seen parked in the distance on the opposite side of the road, but isn't there in the next shot. The reason is that it is Sarah's Mini that is being pulled out of the ditch by the tow truck and the car should have not been in shot when Graham approached the crash scene. See more »

5 May 2010 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Simple story, done a thousand times but here it works. Hammer uses small things to keep you watch it. Again they have nudity but you have to be quick to see it. As stated before, nudity couldn't be done on television. The first episode had frontal nudity, but due complaints it was cut out in the other episodes. Also in this episode is a bit of gory stuff, but still watchable for the squeamish. For the time being this episode has the most of blood in it. remember that it was aired in the early evening so people were offended by it, that's why it became cult and why this is already on DVD. In fact, it's a nice box to buy and start with if you will watch horror with friends.
