Great piece of classic cult British 70's horror
11 March 2000 | by Sultan of HorrorSee all my reviews

A fine British 70's Horror with outstanding performances from both Gough and Askwith. A young guy decides to get away for a short spell at a relaxing health resort, only to discover that he becomes trapped and that it is no ordinary health resort! Very dark, very camp, a quite memorable film of it's era.
