This film had me re-winding and watching again and again years ago. Been a few years since I've seen it, and I still look for my chance!
Kenny Everett (sadly missed) brought his own brand of humour to the screen and it is seen best in this film. Supported well (by Vincent Price to name but one), he pulls a somewhat limited script out of the satanical ashes and keeps you laughing, not to mention groaning.
A comedy of the time, this film is more of a cult "do you remember?" than a film for anyone, but it's worth a look.
