not the Larraz I know
11 January 2014 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

I am a great fan of Jose Ramon Larraz, master of sex and witchcraft in the English countryside, and love his Black Candles, Vampyres, Deviation and the slightly different, Symptoms, but this is so tepid. I suppose if you are looking for a languorous, soft focus, vaseline lens outing with two very friendly ladies, this could be ideal. I'm being a little unfair for you have no doubt seen the outrageous and iconic poster with the girl crouched inside a cut out horse. Well this does appear (within a dream sequence) and there is a real horse with a naked man riding it who chases the ladies (in and out of dreams) and there is a rape scene, though almost entirely cut from available prints. So not your usual hard edged and pagan inspired horror, though it is admittedly well shot with some decent sequences in the rushes, its just not the Larraz I know.
