Bio not provided
it´s the kind of movie that survives the test of time with flying colours. i'm certain that like james today,20 years from now some other internet reviewer will be praising the qualities of this movie story,animation,perfomances,etc..

a curious fact.
the movie that the family is watching on tv,"grunt!" was produced by the director of troll 2.

i'm just guessing,but the reason why there is "generous" nudity in the shower scene and "moderated" nudity in the sex scene might be because even in a crappy movie like this one the actors have contracts stating if they are or not willing to do full frontal nudity scenes.

this movie is so bad that makes superman 3 and 4 look like good movies at least they have some decent action scenes.
3 years ago on Supergirl (1984)
this top 15 deserves a sequel or a expansion to top 30, too many great burning scenes have been left out.
anyway it's another great compilation from james.

Check this other list of scores for hammer movies in IMdb :
The Curse of Frankenstein 7.1/10
Revenge of frankeinstein 6.8/10
Horror of Dracula 7.5/10
The Brides of Dracula 6.8/10
The Mummy 6.8/10
The curse of the Werewolf 6.8/10
Granted that none is on the top 50 IMDB horror list but they have some pretty honourable average ratings that put them way above the middle of the road comparing with more recent and "modern" horror movies.
I´m assuming that you only presented the rating of hammer movies that you have watched and all are from the worst period of hammer studios (late 60's and 70's).
I strongly sugest you if you don't have any serious prejudice against "old" and "bygone eras" horror movies you should try and watch some of the movies that made hammer studios a legendary production company of cult horror movies (for example try some of the hammer studio movies already reviewed by james in monster madness). After seeing them maybe you might have a new perspective and opinion in the creativity and importance of hammer studios in reinventing the classic universal monster movies and to the horror genre in general in the late 50's and early 60's.
Also i'm just curious,how many horror movies did BLF and merchant-ivory have produced ? because mostly of james movie reviews on cinemassacre are about horror,syfy,fantasy and action movies(but who knows he might surprise us someday with a review of passage to india or the remains of the day among others). :)
