-- And Now the Screaming Starts! Was an attempt by Amicus Productions to move away from the Portmantaeu movies that was their stock in trade, to make a horror movie of only one story. The reason is not to compete with Hammer Films, since there really was no rivalry between the two companies, but just to show that they could if they so chose to go that route as well. What is evident is that their inexperience in this department shows greatly, making the film an enjoyable misfire, if ultimately a frustrating experience.

Story is set in the late 18th century and newlyweds Charles and Catherine Fengriffen move into Charles' family estate. Almost immediately Catherine starts to have terrifying visions, even experiencing what she feels is definite contact with something not of the natural world. Is she going mad? Or is there something seriously malevolent lurking around the dark corridors of Fengriffen Mansion?

What follows is a number of fun and creepy horror sequences very poorly glued together by a minimalist back story and thin characterisations, the Amicus production team just hurtling as quick as possible to the next scene involving Stephanie Beacham being freaked out and screaming. And of course for us to observe her quite magnificent heaving bosom. On reflection it's a collage of more famous and better movies, so a portmanteau movie that's not actually a portmanteau movie!

The cast list features Peter Cushing, Herbert Lom and Patrick Magee. Cushing doesn't show up until late in the day, and as classy as he was as an actor, he is phoning it in here. Lom only appears in an extended cameo flashback, which is annoying since the character is deliciously warped, sort of what Emeric Belasco was for Legend of Hell House.

Format: DVD
This is a classic horror in my opinion made in the era of most of the best horror films. The film begins with a Hound of the Baskervilles type of storyline where a wealthy landowner decides to use his power to have his wicked way with a newly wed. The husband, a wood cutter who works on the landowner's land then takes revenge on the family by means of a curse. Set in a typical old manor house the grandson of the landowner falls foul to the woodcutter's curse. Peter Cushing, Stephanie Beecham and that actor who played in the lead role of the seventies series of "The Saint" all star. A few screams take place in this film as the title indicates, although the chopped off hand that moves by itself is a little far fetched. I like this film because I like the typical manor house setting and the fact that its not another vampire story. Not a bad plot and fairly well acted it ticks all the boxes for me. Worth adding to anyone's collection.

When Charles Fengriffen takes his new bride Catherine to his anscestral home, strange things start to happen. Catherine seems strangely drawn to the portrait of Charles's grandfather Henry, and also sees an eyeless apparition at the window, as well as being attacked in her bed. Is she going mad, or are there more sinister forces at work? Meanwhile a spectral severed hand is going round strangling anybody who tries to help.
This film has a great cast, and an established genre director, but seems strangely flat. There are moments of great style, but they are few and far between, and it just feels like a mish mash of every British gothic horror from the previous decade. Amicus should probably kept to making horror set in the present day, as this rare foray into gothic territory is not one of their best. Theres nothing terrible about the film, it just feels a bit stale, and fails to either scare or excite this viewer at least.
3 out of 5, but it could have been so much better

What were British horror films for in the 1970s? I suppose things go in cycles and this comes pretty late. It's interesting (maybe) that the Carry Ons and the Hammer/Amicus breed started and finished around the same time. They are coarse in the main but have some saving graces and some high points like any genre. This is just about watchable for about three reasons. 1. Stephanie Beacham and Peter Cushing are professionals and they know (as most of the cast do) how to say a line without fluffing it, in fact Cushing has a lovely speaking voice. 2. Lurid colour scheme - kind of interesting. I'm struggling now. 3. Err...of its time in terms of final plot-twist although the denouement which includes biblically 'relevant' quotation leaves all sorts of questions about His intentions regarding mankind's behaviour. Less watchable for about 8 reasons but here are three: 1. Not horrific or shocking enough even for this milksop. 2. Plot and script (consequently) so full of holes and absurdities: derivative and lazy. 3. When you chop a man's hand off make sure you can't see his real one strapped inside his shirt. It takes a lot for me actively to dislike a film, so it's watchable but don't expect much.

Charles fengriffen takes his new bride to the fengriffen estate but her happiness is to be short lived, on their wedding/first night on the estate catherine(the bride)is raped by a ghost with one hand and no eyes.She continues to be terrorized by the ghost and is shocked to find that the woodsman who lives on the estate bears a strong resemblance to the ghost but when she tries to enquire about the woodsman she is met with silence even from her husband, but some reluctantly try to tell her and are killed before they can.There is a curse on fengriffen involving the woodsman, everyone knows about it except catherine.

An energetic film with no dull points, the last third is particularly action packed as this is where all is revealed.
All the cast perform well not least of which horror legend peter cushing, good script and great directing.The transfer is perfect and overall not the best amicus production but very good, well worth adding to your collection.
