Peter Cushing (Dracula, Star Wars)and Wanda Ventham (U F.O, The Lotus Eaters.) star in this spine chilling 1968 British horror classic, directed by Vernon Sewell (Curse Of The Crimson Altar, Burke & Hare). Six young men have been brutally murdered, their throats torn to ribbons and drained of all blood. The sole witness has been consigned to a lunatic asylum, raving about something terrible with gigantic wings... Suspecting that some sort of giant bird of prey may be loose, Inspector Quennell (Peter Cushing) turns to local zoologist Dr. Mallinger (Robert Flemyng) and his beautiful daughter Clare (Wanda Ventham) for help in solving the case. But Mallinger has terrible secrets all of his own secrets that may soon endanger both Quennell and his innocent young daughter Meg (Vanessa Howard)...With a chillingly inventive script by Hammer s Peter Bryan (The Plague Of The Zombies, The Hound Of The Baskervilles), this acclaimed Tigon British production has been extensively digitally remastered and restored for its first-ever Blu-Ray release. Brand New 2K Restoration at BBC Post Production and Studios from the original 35mm Interpostive | Remastered Uncompressed Original Mono Soundtrack | Audio Commentary by 'English Gothic' author Jonathan Rigby and Peter Cushing biographer David Miller | Interview with Wanda Ventham | Theatrical Trailer | Stills Gallery.

In the late 1960's, whilst Hammer films were becoming increasingly reliant on their Dracula and Frankenstein franchises, and Amicus Films concentrated on their Anthology films, it was left to other smaller companies to provide the British public with more diverse fayre. Probably the most famous of these other companies was Tigon, a company set up by exploitation maestro Tony Tenser. Tigon's notable output include that marvellous horror about religious hypocrisy in the Middle Ages, 'The Witchfinder General', another terrific 60's British horror about the spread of a malignant evil in the countryside called 'Blood On Satan's Claw' and the interesting primitive slasher 'The Haunted House Of Horror'. Then there was 'The Blood Beast Terror'. To think of this film in the same league as the afore-mentioned triumphs would be silly as this is a very minor effort in comparison. It does get a very bad press though, which is rather unfair.
For a start, the film was beset with production difficulties. The role of Dr.Read more ›
Naturally the answer lies with Robert Flemying’s entomologist and his beautiful daughter Wanda Ventham, and he’s only marginally better at hiding his lack of interest than Cushing. He does as good a job as anyone could in a film with a monster as silly as this one boasts (the clue is in his specialist field), but the original casting of Basil Rathbone, by then reduced to the likes of Hillbillys in a Haunted House, would at least have offered the sight of two of the best Sherlock Holmes sharing the screen (along with Benedict Cumberbatch’s mum) to give it some faint novelty value by association. Rathbone died before shooting started, and considering the lacklustre quality of the finished film you can’t help thinking that’s the sort of thing people mean when they describe death as a merciful release.Read more ›

A better than average horror thriller of its time. Cast is good.
However the 5 stars is for the remastering. I don't believe I've seen a cleaner job. Read more
excellent DVD Peter Cushing fills the screen unlike a lot of actors today although the fishing rod used in this periodic film did look like a 1960;s fibreglass rod:-)Published 5 months ago by Graham Mark Attwell

Cushing says this was his worse film although I have read elsewhere that this dubious distinction goes to CORRUPTION. Read morePublished on 17 Jan. 2014 by Paulmak2010
