Storyline

The vicar of a Norman church asks the Avengers' help when a team of archaeologists excavating a site underneath the church are all killed and their bodies rendered completely devoid of any energy. This is due to a little black box which sends out deadly charges of electricity. Furthermore its charges are nurturing a race of thingumajigs, pure energy creatures which will eat anything and must be stopped before they do great harm. Written by don @ minifie-1

A church in need of an Exorcist
8 May 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Thingumajig," like "Fog," is an underrated horror entry, adding a dash of science fiction. An archaeological excavation beneath a 12th century church yields a number of corpses, and the mystery grows when a nearby pond offers up a bevy of dead fish. An atmospheric hybrid with an electrifying climax. The youthful Jeremy Lloyd ("From Venus with Love") is clearly miscast as the Reverend, and would soon join the enemy in America as both writer and performer on LAUGH-IN, whose ratings success put an end to THE AVENGERS. Also featuring Willoughby Goddard ("The Frighteners"), Hugh Manning ("The Thirteenth Hole" and "The Superlative Seven"), John Horsley ("Mr Teddy Bear"), Edward Burnham ("The Fear Merchants"), Vernon Dobtcheff ("Room Without a View" and "The Living Dead"), Russell Waters ("Castle De'ath"), John Moore ("The Hidden Tiger"), and Harry Shacklock ("A Change of Bait," "The Mauritius Penny," "Man-Eater of Surrey Green").
