Blu-ray Review - The Reptile (1966)

The Reptile, 1966.

Directed by John Gilling.

Starring Noel Willman, Jacqueline Pearce, Ray Barrett, Jennifer Daniel and Michael Ripper.

Synopsis:

Following the mysterious death of his brother, Harry Spalding (Ray Barrett) and his wife Valerie (Jennifer Daniel) move to an inherited cottage in small Cornish village with a dark secret.

A smiling Malay waits at the foot of the stairs, watching as a shape emerges from the shadows, and sinks its teeth into our man’s neck. He runs, falls down the staircase, foaming at the mouth, his wound turning all sorts of colours you just know skin shouldn’t be.
