Rather than write a review for the "readers review" section, I thought I would just make a post in here (sometimes my taste in films is too outside the interests of the majority here). Not sure how many of you have this disc from Image, but I just got through watching it.

It is a fine addition to the Hammer Vampire film legacy. The ending in particular (while saddled with those dratted rubber bats) is just brilliant and quite unique.

I read on another site that this film is now out of print because Image and Universal (who own the rights to this film) fell out over a pricing issue (Image sold the discs cheaper). Bummer. We might have gotten more Hammer to watch.

Regardless, if you are into Hammer, try and seek this one out. I say it on amazon for $13 - not bad! I got it in a store, shoved right to the back of the rack and beaten up - for $6. One of those rare finds!

hell ya!

I have had my copy on order form Amazon for awhile now. They keep delaying the shipping date and moving it back. I hope i can get a copy becuase the movie does sound interesting and sounds like something i would like to add to my collection.

Wow, I hope you do get it! I read that it is now OOP. How can they keep moving the date if it is OOP, do they have sources from elsewhere?

Amazon, did that with my order of the Lady in White, I gave up going to the site in the end, then noticed one day that the funds were taken from my credit card, a few days later the disc arrived with parcel force:D

For me it was an impulse buy about 4 years ago at one of those Pioneer warehouse sales. It's the Laserdisc version (which I'm guessing was directly ported over to the DVD), a double feature with Nightmare. Factory sealed (I WAS at the factory, after all...) for just $2.

Only watched in once in all the years I've had it, though I do remember it being pretty damn good. Love that opening scene with the funeral on the foggy moors...
