I thought it was pretty good. Better then The Chrildren.
Cracking film.
One of the best and most brutal British films of recent years.

The 20 best British horror/exploitation;
First 3 only in order


"The Wicker Man"

"Witchfinder General"

"Blood on Satan's Claw"


"Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell"

"Peeping Tom"

"Twins of Evil"

"Curse of Frankenstein"

"Vampire Lovers"

"Satanic Rites of Dracula"

"Dog Soldiers"

"The Descent"

"Theatre of Blood"

"Tower of Evil"

"Island of Terror"

"Hands of the Ripper"

"Frightmare"

"Shaun of the Dead"

"The Devils"

"Hellraiser"

"Death Line"



Most overrated?
Hammer's "Dracula".
Groundbreaking once for sure with a (for then) nicely erotic/fangy Drac and a nice twist on Van Helsing by a top form Cushing.

Mostly drab now though as a film in its own right, with a stupid self-inflicted plot hole and other weak, silly changes and an overall awful adaptation of Stoker's novel.

Can't argue with THE WICKER MAN being top dog.
You've got good taste.

Nicolas Cage's performance was unbelievable.LOL

Nice to see Freak has included my fave Hammer flicks in his top 20, Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell, The Satanic Rites of Dracula and Twins of Evil.I've also got a soft spot for The Vampire Lovers as it was the first horror movie I ever saw.That reminds me I must pick up the Optimum disc at some point, anyone know whether it's fully uncut?
