The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires [DVD] [1974]
The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires [DVD] [1974]
Dvd ~ Peter Cushing
Price: £17.99

4.0 out of 5 stars tang vs fang, 23 Feb 2012
did not expect much from this but i was suprised ok apart from cushing and pitt the acting is awful and the film quality is not good but i loved it.think back to the old bruce lee films and you have the sort of quality of filming and acting we are talking about but look at the following they have.dracula travels to china to resurrect the 7 golden vampires and of course van helsing fights to stop him.for all its faults it is a really entertaining film combining vampires kung fu and the magnificent seven.give it a try hopefully you wont be sorry i was not.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the greats, 23 Feb 2012
this film does not get the credit it deserve many people branding it an oddity,in actual fact it is a brilliant and clever piece of cinema.the story goes that dr jekyll experiments with female hormones trying to prolong life,they start to turn him in to sister hyde and the battle between the two begins for control of the body.the film mixes the traditional jekyll story with burke and hare, jack the ripper and transvestisisum,its worth the money just to see the sexy sister hyde naked.this is the cleverest and most original of all the hammer films and probably my favourite as well.

Midnight Express (30th Anniversary Edition) [DVD] [2008]
Dvd ~ Brad Davis
Price: £5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars great all timer, 23 Feb 2012
this is one of the all time greats and ranks along side papillon.billy is caught smuggling drugs out of turkey and sent to a turkish prison this movie deals with his life there.i hate drugs and think anyone involved in them should be severly punished but even i felt sorry for this guy.there are many great preformances including the lead and particularly john hurt.If you like gritty movies this is the one for you,i cannot think of anything bad to say about this film its an all round brilliant film.

5.0 out of 5 stars study in terror, 23 Feb 2012
this is easily my favourite ripper film,its not in anyway factual but is the most enjoyable film of this kind.a good cast and good story with a brilliant ending put this movie top of my list,babs windsor is great and a bumbling watson is enjoyable to watch.this is a must have dvd for horror fans of the classic kind,its not cheap to buy but worth every penny.

3.0 out of 5 stars house of usher, 23 Feb 2012
yet again a good story and prices acting boost this film but cheap film production and a poor acting by supporting cast drag it down.this is probably his best acting performance most of his films are a bit hammy and overacted but thats why we love him its just a shame a lot of his movies are cheap productions.

3.0 out of 5 stars red death, 23 Feb 2012
the symbolism in this film is the one thing that brings it up to a three star rating,representation of the red death as a mysterious man is great.prices acting is yet again great but the film itself is a bit of a bore.poes stories are really good but dont really transfer well to a full length film.

5.0 out of 5 stars countess dracula, 23 Feb 2012
a most enjoyable movie one of hammers classics.ingid pitt is great and has a fantastic body,the cast is top draw the acting is also great.pitt plays elizabeth bathory a countess that kills virgins so she can bathe in their blood to become young again.this is a must see for all lovers of british horror and the biggest plus is a naked ingrid pitt hooray.

2.0 out of 5 stars muted horror, 23 Feb 2012
strange movie has inventive deaths but price is struck dumb.It seems strange to me that the greatest quality that price has his voice is not used.I did not enjoy this film and have not yet bothered to watch the sequal.

3.0 out of 5 stars cutprice film, 23 Feb 2012
This review is from: Witchfinder General [DVD] (DVD)
low budget poorly made film even price is not at his best and as for horror i dont think so,this could have been so much better.nothing much happens and is genrally boring with very few highlights quite why this is considered a classic is a total mystery to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars a cut above, 23 Feb 2012
this is the best of the price poe AI movies i have seen so far price delivers yet again.the plot is great but everyones acting except for price is poor it is his acting that brings this film up to a good level without him it would be lost.this film is worth watching for the ending and prices usual overacting.
