I'm not sure if I saw this in the distant past on some rough video or not but recalled nothing of it and decided, following Franco's recent demise, to watch my recently acquired Image release and it's a revelation. I had certainly never seen the most vigorous cellar sequence before but was most impressed with the whole film. It is a little slow but it always looks so good with the marvellous cinematography, presumably by the director himself, and most of it shot outside with great evocative locations. Howard Vernon is his usual splendid self, appearing as guilty as hell and provided you don't expect a breakneck pace this is a highly recommended watch with an absolutely stunning and ambiguously shot, aforementioned cellar scene.
