Stop It This Is Getting Silly
10 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A male nurse called Edwyn pricks his finger while working a hospital and becomes convinced that he's been infected by a " virus of evil " which is all a big conspiracy of Satanists ready to rule the world via the figure 9

One problem watching HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR in bulk is that you're aware how some episodes have a sameness to them regardless of who the director and script writer are . The previous episode Two Faces Of Evil featured a conspiracy of dopplegangers and this time we've got a conspiracy of Satanists trying to spread evil in the form of a virus . With hindsight one can see why this show remained a one off because the whole genre of horror is very self limiting . If the show had gone to a second series and we've got more of the same with a witch , a werewolf , a fraud featuring an urban myth etc This is a fairly mediocre episode featuring insanity and Devil worshippers and despite trying to terrify the audience ends up becoming unintentionally funny during a number of pivotal scenes such someone getting stabbed in the most painless death ever featured in a TV show and " Super Priest " runs to the rescue . Some of the cast do deserve some credit for managing to keep a straight face but you can see them thinking that when they get home they're going to phone their agent and telling him they'll be unavailable to appear in the second series . As it happened Hammer's follow up series was called HAMMER HOUSE OF MYSTERY AND SUSPENSE which turned out to be instantly forgettable and unwatched
