An absolute necessity if you watch TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER
It's rare that a DVD extra is worth watching. All too often, they are too brief and have nothing particularly interesting to say. However, this one is an absolute must for anyone who watches TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER. This is because the original film started off well but became a rather incomprehensible mess towards the end. My wife and I watched the film and felt cheated and baffled by the muddled conclusion. Well, why the ending was so bad as well as all the background for the film are clearly explained in the documentary. Plus, it was reassuring to hear Christopher Lee and several of the film makers talking about how bad they, too, thought the film turned out in the end. Additionally, there were several interesting comments on the film. One was a discussion of the final days of the Hammer Film Studio and another was about what a boorish jerk Richard Widmark was during filming!
Overall, a must if you see TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER and even worth seeing if you don't. Well constructed (unlike the original film) and filled with plenty of interviews with surviving cast members and crew--most of which were alive when the documentary was completed.
