A good portion of Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue was filmed in the Peak District, so at least some of it was filmed in Britain.

Riccardo Freda's TRAGIC CEREMONY, Fulci's THE BLACK CAT, LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN and the opening of THE PSYCHIC.

Not Britain but THE BLOODSUCKER LEADS THE DANCE and THE IGUANA WITH THE TONGUE OF FIRE are both set in Ireland.

But Tragic Ceremony doesn't even do anything to make us tihnk its in Britain, apart from Lords and Ladies and Scotland. I've never heard of the Bloodsucker leads the Dance, but the Iguana is definitely filmed in Ireland, in places such as Liberty Hall, Tara Street, Walton's Music Store. As a Dublin native, it makes me overjoyed to see such places in a giallo. Even a few Irish actors appear, such as legendary Irish entertainer Niall Toibin who was also in Rawhead Rex, Ballykissangel and even was in an episode of Minder!

It may not do but it still is. I haven't seen BLOODSUCKER for ages so I can't remember if any of it was actually filmed there (which it probably wasn't).

"Deadly Sweet" is an amazing film though Prowse and Porter are only extras! The Cult Epics release is well worth a punt to see Tinto Brass' pre tit and arse work. It's a glorious, pop art freak out of a film. I love it.
