4.0 out of 5 stars House On Straw Hill UNCUT Blu ray review 9 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Despite holding the crown as the only UK produced picture to be labled a video nasty in the ridiculous furor that plagued the home video industry in the early 1980s, House On Straw Hill or Expose as it was then known still remains relatively obscure known only to die hard fans of 70s Brit horror and those curious with the whole video nasty phenomenon who had the sole intention of seeing all of the movies that made the DPPs final list of 39 banned titles. Without its banner headlines and inclusion on the list i'm sure House On Straw Hill would have completely disappeared without trace.
The set up is simple with paranoid and quite obviously troubled first time best selling author Paul Martin(German star Udo Kier of Andy Warhol's Flesh For Frankenstein and Blood For Dracula fame)fresh off the overwhelming success off his first novel(which he may have or not have written) who has hit a serious case of writers block with his new work of art despite residing away from it all in a secluded picturesque cottage. Even a few bouts of kinky hanky panky with his attractive girlfriend Suzanne(70s sex starlet Fiona Richmond)do nothing to cure his dilemma maybe even working as a distraction so she is subsequently ushered away to leave the master at work. Added to that the pressure of a tight deadline and high intensions from the publisher his agent hires him a secretary and typist with whom he can dictate his follow up work. The arrival of Paul's new hired help at the local village station station in the form of the beautiful Linda(The Blood On Satan's Claws Linda Hayden) spurns the interest of two local ruffians(80s TV favourite Karl Howman and future stuntman and Harrison Ford body double Vic Armstrong) who are soon dispatched by Paul utilising some very impressive fisty cuffs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally arrived at Straw Hill 19 Oct 2013
Format:Blu-ray
After a 4 month delay House On Straw Hill finally arrives uncut on Blu-Ray! I'm not going to review the film itself as most cult horror/thriller fans will know what it's about.

The Blu-ray has been transferred from 3 negatives to make it uncut, but due to years old neglect the print is in far worse condition despite the sleeve saying it's been restored. It has been restored uncut, but that's where it stops. The print is littered with scratches, dirt, debris and a whole load of colour fade. The only positive spin I can put on this is if you liked watching Death Proof and Planet Terror in all it's beaten down worn out look, then you make like it. It does have a Grindhouse feel to it so maybe in a strange sort of way the transfer suits it!

Can it look better? Sure if Lowry or Arrow were given the negatives then yes a full scan would make it look a hell of a lot better than it does here. But will it ever come out in the UK to buy? Not sure, it depends on the BBFC. Lots of sex and violence so they may cut some scenes down.

The good thing is this Blu-Ray is region free and will work in any PS3 or Blu-Ray machine. Also included in a ltd edition 3 disc set which runs at 3000 is a documentary about banned UK horror films. Also included is a DVD of the film.

I'm giving it 4 stars for the film.
2 out 5 for the transfer.
3 out of 5 for the extras.
3 out of 5 for the audio.

If you like the film then it's a must buy if you don't mind watching it in Grindhouse style worn out look.
