An absolute gem,
This review is from: The Man Who Haunted Himself (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
This is a smashing film. It's like a Tales of the Unexpected or Hammer House of Horror done on a feature-film scale and budget. Classic British psychological thriller. Rammed to the gills with top-notch British character actors. Most viewers will associate Roger Moore with his slightly tongue-in-cheek portrayal of James Bond, but here he plays it deadly straight, can't fault him at all. The cinematography is great, a postcard of London in 1970 is up there on the screen. The picture quality of the BluRay is absolutely superb, I honestly don't think I've seen a more pristine looking film, it looks gorgeous. (Perhaps ironically this is because the film was so poorly distributed on its original cinema release, and so the negs hardly ever came out of the can!) There's a worthwhile commentary track with Roger Moore too.
