bad effects
4 May 2010 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I didn't thought that I would ever say that something was bad coming out if the Hammer house but this is not good. Bad is maybe overrated but still there are better episodes. Okay, when the rapist is shot there is a shot of his face, a bit scary but then it's downhill. The lady almost being raped shots the rapist presumed to be death. But he reappears wherever the woman is. So far so good but when she goes to a fortune teller the effects are bad. When in a séance the voice and face appears it is badly done. Okay, when the episodes end you will see what really happened but still the end is also badly done. It is in fact a good storyline but could have been done much better knowing the effects used in the seventies. Even Nosferatu was better done. But it wasn't boring and that's already a positive point, isn't it?
