There's Black cat by Fulci and Panic, and Nell Ombra della Okmbra with Frank Finlay. And Lenzi's thingy Paranoia and Concorde by Ruggero Deodato and Eagles over London. And Deadly Sweet by TintO Brass, any other euro-esploitation set in Britain?
Paul Naschy always had to set his films abroad thanks to baffling censorship regulations - the Spanish government were worried that if people saw monsters and horrors set in Spain it might give a bad impression of the country (). Therefore a few were set in Britain:
Dr. Jekyll y el Hombre Lobo
Jack el destripador de Londres - very amusing because in the scenes shot on the London streets, people are blatantly looking and one even points at the camera as they walk past.
La rebelión de las muertas (which I bafflingly have not yet reviewed) - Naschy leaves London by train heading for rural Wales, only to arrive on a RENFE train at a small Spanish station...
Mondo Esoterica - Over 400 cult film and DVD reviews from Gothic Europe to the Italian West
Now stay in touch with Mondo Esoterica on Twitter
THE NIGHT EVELYN CAME OUT OF THE GRAVE - It's really obviously not filmed in England - they're not even driving on the right side of the road - but the wonky ideas about London in Italian films are great - how you always have to drive across Tower Bridge to get anywhere at all; all crime being investigated by Scotland Yard etc. The interview at Broadcasting House in the Night Child where the guy just dumps his car outside the main entrance is especially brilliant!
I now have a shiny new website! Or check out my DeviantArt profile if you please...
The movie was paid for entirely from British bank funding, which Polygram Pictures (a Dutch company run by Americans) then paid back in full once the movie was complete. However, this deal was made within the British quota system, and Lycanthrope films Ltd. - the company set up by John Landis and George Folsey Jr. to make the film - was established in the UK.
