In 1959, legendary showman Joseph E. Levine bought this grisly UK thriller to unleash on American moviegoers. But when audiences were horrified by the film’s startling violence, it became one of Levine’s most notorious failures. Today – in its original UK theatrical cut, the American version with a brassy new score, and the ooh-la- la European edition – it remains among the most under appreciated and provocative shockers of its time. Eddie Byrne (THE MUMMY), Lee Patterson (TV’s SURFSIDE 6) and Betty McDowall (FIRST MEN IN THE MOON) star in this lurid classic produced/directed by Robert S. Baker & Monty Berman (THE HELLFIRE CLUB, BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE) and written by Hammer Films’ legendary Jimmy Sangster (THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, HORROR OF DRACULA) that FilmFracture.com calls “the perfect combination of murder mystery and horror film with just the right amount of lovely ladies!”
AVAILABLE BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND (regular cover / single disc edition released in 2018, any leftovers of Limited Edition will not be available until regular edition streets).
