4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining oddity from Amicus, 29 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you (like me ) love the Hammer and Amicus movies from this era Im sure you will find much to enjoy in The Skull . A great cast with Cushing and Lee ably supporter by Patrick Wymark, This film is also a high point of Freddie Francis's directorial career .Francis imbues the film with an eery' otherworldly almost dream like quality that perfectly compliments Robert Bloch's sparse screenplay .
One of Amicus best films .

5.0 out of 5 stars An underated (Burnt) offering !, 18 Nov. 2009
Always had a soft spot for this well made chiller from the underated Dan Curtis.....Nothing too original story wise and you may get the feeling you have seen some of the plot twists somewhere before.However considering this was made before Amityville Horror and The Shining {two films that certain scenes in particular remind one of )Its storyline holds up rather well.
Above all tho it is the atmosphere and slow building tension to as scary a climax as i have seen in many a horror movie...Still givesme the creeps now ! :O.

3.0 out of 5 stars derivative but good, 25 May 2008
This review is from: Isolation [2005] [DVD] (DVD)
not a great film by any standards but better than i thought it would be. while derivative of ALIEN and other examples of sf/horror,the film does manage to create an uneasy atmosphere and a dirty,earthy type feel that reminded me of 70s english low budjet shockers i grew up watching.
not bad

4.0 out of 5 stars involving and disturbing, 25 May 2008
This review is from: Them [DVD] (DVD)
i knew nothing of this film when i first purchased it and was surprised to find an involving and ultimately quiet disturbing small scale horror/thriller.
excellent performances from the two leads,great direction that racks up the tension well and also pays homage to a few classics of the genre without ramming the point down your throat.
highly recommended
