This review is from: Confessional: House of Mortal Sin [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This 1975 film from Pete Walker is about a catholic priest who uses his confessional box in an unorthodox fashion by taping his parishoners confessions.The priest uses these tapes to morally blackmail them but with no,seemingly,monitory gain.It really only deals with two blackmail victims,both young women,and one of them as a subplot.The main victim is Susan Penhaligon and this leads to a string of deaths,some nicely using religious items as weapons.The film goes along reasonably fast paced and has a "nice" twist ending.It also stars Stephanie Beacham,Anthonty Sharp(whose face will be more familiar than his name),Norman Eshley(Mr Fourmile from George and Mildred)and Walker regular Shelia Keith.There is also a small role for Andrew Sachs just pre Fawlty towers.The disc has quite a few extras,an audio commentary by director Pete Walker,a tribute to Shelia Keith(13:49) and a documentary "courting controversy" about a few of Walkers films(37:31).There is also a gallery of artwork and lobby cards(1:04)and a selection of Pete Walker trailers(11:35).A very good selection.
