Trivia

Born out of cinematographer and latterly director Freddie Francis' desire to make a film over which he had complete creative control as opposed to being a director for hire. See more »

Goofs

Sonny's "16mm home movie camera" is actually an 8mm home movie camera. You can tell by the size, shape, lens and model name. 16mm weren't as common for home movies as an 8mm camera was in 1970 so it would be difficult for an amateur filmmaker to obtain one without a lot of money. See more »

Disturbing... but fun...
3 November 2000 | by henr8ySee all my reviews

Wow, what can I say. This film was made from an old English play and, to say the least, what kind of sick mind could write something like this? I LOVE IT!!! A twisted family without a father figure lives secluded in an extremely large lot with a mansion to live in. It never tells how they make money or buy groceries, but those are insignificant. There's Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly who all live a happy (crazy) life. Luring homeless men to the mansion to be playmates for the children and if they step-out-of-line, WHACK, they are sent on a "train to the angels." The funniest thing about this movie, I think, is the Siamese Anthem.
