available at long last.,
This review is from: Scream And Scream Again [DVD] (DVD)
i have a sort of fondness for "scream and scream again" as it was one of the first horror films i saw back in the late 80s.
i am glad that the film has finally surfaced on british dvd, although this is far from being a classic.
the plot hardly makes any sense from the beginning and only the scenes with the police seem to have any kind of continuity. peter cushing is thoroughly wasted in his one scene appearance: surely the writers could have found more for this gifted actor to contribute? vincent price doesn't appear much until towards the end and christopher lee's character seems pointless and adds nothing to the story.
there are some good scenes, i'm not calling "scream and scream again" a complete dud by any means. it has promise and on paper, it must have looked good. however, a director like michael reeves could have made so much more of the plot than gordon hessler.
it was good to see the original music by amen corner re-edited into this dvd, the songs are pretty good and the tunes catchy(being half welsh, i'm bound to be somewhat biased).
alfred marks has some good moments as the gruff police officer. a shame he wasn't in the film near the end.
