This is one Hammer film I've never seen, but I've always heard good things about it so I'm quite excited.
is a good film, one of the many Hammer Psycho
-inspired films, but likely the best of this sub-sub-genre. Oliver Reed is excellent, and there's an obligatory but fun twist at the end. Odd choice for the first Hammer film on Blu-ray though. Some of the earlier Technicolour films, like the first Frankensteins and Draculas, would look fabulous on HD. In Region 1, Synapse Films are releasing three classic Hammers this fall -- Hands of the Ripper
, Vampire Circus
, and Twins of Evil
-- and may be putting them out on Blu-ray. Fingers crossed!
