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.
