Not great, but alright
8 June 2002 | by haxanSee all my reviews

This is not a great film but I liked it better than the other 2 Pete Walker films I've seen (Frightmare, House of Whipcord). If you're familiar with Pete Walker at all you more or less know what to expect. If not this is a reasonable film to start with. It has the basic exploitation elements but is not as explicit as continental European films of the same sort from this era. For a British film it has a fair bit of nudity. There is not all that much blood, despite the title's implication. A decent film for this type, but not one of the best.
