Product Description

First ever DVD release of this excellent value for money triple bill of nerve-jangling, Wilkie Collins inspired suspense classics starring the first man of British horror - Tod Slaughter. During the 1930's and 40's, Tod Slaughter was the consummate villain of the silver screen. Screen classics such as Sweeney Todd and Maria Marten established him as Britain's top horror movie star after Boris Karloff. Whether it was wholesale murder, larceny, blackmail, unbridled madness or torture. Tod Slaughter delighted his cinema audiences by playing the foulest of villains. This DVD contains three of Slaughter's previously unreleased films, the most famous of which is the digital re-mastered The Face at the Window in which a series of grisly murders in nineteenth century France is attributed to a wolf-man. The Crimes of Stephen Hawke sees Slaughter as 'The Spinebreaker' a crazed killer stalking London. The final film in this epic Tod trilogy is It's Never Too Late to Mend where an evil prison governor presides over a cruel reign of torture to his inmates until an uprising sees his take a dose of his own medicine...

Review

Slaughter gleefully overacts in this fun B-movie --Blockbuster

Amusing barnstormer. Interesting antics from the heavy-breathing star. --Halliwell

the great man returns for another dvd triple feature-and once again he delivers the ham like no one else-he tended to play the same type of character in every film-but trust me,once you have seen this great master of his craft in action you will agree,i am sure,that this is not a bad thing.there will never be another tod slaughter,so now his films are making there way to dvd,enjoy them as soon as you can-you wont regret it!

Format:DVD
Tod Slaughter was the original British horror star playing 'diabolical villains' in Victorian melodramas twenty or so years before Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee appeared in Hammer films in the late 1950s.

This DVD Triple Feature contains the digitally re-mastered, 'The Face at the Window', where a series of grisly murders is attributed to a wolf-man in 19th century Paris. 'The Crimes of Stephen Hawke' is about a crazed killer, 'The Spinebreaker', roaming London; and 'It's Never Too Late to Mend' sees Slaughter as an evil prison governor, Squire Meadows, presiding over the torture of inmates. Extras include a booklet and Best of British Trailers.

It's good that several of his films are now available on DVD seventy years after they were made; Slaughter is very sinister and foul villain, although his fellow actors/actresses come across as rather stilted and wooden in these films! 'Face at the Window' is possibly his best film, and the restored picture makes it better to watch than the other two.
