The furor surrounding “House On Straw Hill” (aka “Expose”) is probably its greatest selling point. The film itself is pretty banal and reminded me (as also commented elsewhere) of “Straw Dogs”, possibly because of violence in a rural setting. Low budgeted and less encompassing than the other, this crudely made drama of a paranoid author looking for inspiration also suffers from so-so acting: Udo Kier goes through his paces ok, sex star Fiona Richmond is no actress and only Linda Hayden puts some conviction into her performance as the secretary with her own agenda (albeit, as she said in the accompanying featurette, it wasn’t a happy experience when she later discovered some inserts including a body double in a lesbian sequence!). Nevertheless this movie should fit the bill for anyone looking for 84 minutes of violence and nudity.

Befitting its reputation as a “Video Nasty”, this BluRay–DVD package comes with a third disc, “Ban The Sadist Videos”, a two part documentary detailing this dark era in UK home entertainment when crusaders and Parliament united to outlaw videos with a supposedly corrupting influence. But I’ve no idea how many of the “House On Straw Hill” releases also packaged this bonus disc as it’s not even mentioned on the outer sleeve.

Despite holding the crown as the only UK produced picture to be labled a video nasty in the ridiculous furor that plagued the home video industry in the early 1980s, House On Straw Hill or Expose as it was then known still remains relatively obscure known only to die hard fans of 70s Brit horror and those curious with the whole video nasty phenomenon who had the sole intention of seeing all of the movies that made the DPPs final list of 39 banned titles. Without its banner headlines and inclusion on the list i'm sure House On Straw Hill would have completely disappeared without trace.
The set up is simple with paranoid and quite obviously troubled first time best selling author Paul Martin(German star Udo Kier of Andy Warhol's Flesh For Frankenstein and Blood For Dracula fame)fresh off the overwhelming success off his first novel(which he may have or not have written) who has hit a serious case of writers block with his new work of art despite residing away from it all in a secluded picturesque cottage. Even a few bouts of kinky hanky panky with his attractive girlfriend Suzanne(70s sex starlet Fiona Richmond)do nothing to cure his dilemma maybe even working as a distraction so she is subsequently ushered away to leave the master at work. Added to that the pressure of a tight deadline and high intensions from the publisher his agent hires him a secretary and typist with whom he can dictate his follow up work. The arrival of Paul's new hired help at the local village station station in the form of the beautiful Linda(The Blood On Satan's Claws Linda Hayden) spurns the interest of two local ruffians(80s TV favourite Karl Howman and future stuntman and Harrison Ford body double Vic Armstrong) who are soon dispatched by Paul utilising some very impressive fisty cuffs.

Paul (Udo Kier) is a troubled man. He is suffering from writer's block and experiences bloody halluciations. His girlfriend, Suzanne (Fiona Richmond) is sent packing and instead, he hires secretary Linda (Linda Hayden). Paul's mental state does not help matters; neither does an altercation with two of the local ruffians. The two locals do not like being roughed up by a toff in a Rolls Royce, nor being rebuffed by the lovely Linda. This does not bode well for the occupants of The House on Straw Hill and it soon becomes a bloody fight for survival.

I saw this film many years ago when it came out on VHS and I was surprised to see that it was made near Hatfield Peverel, the train station where Udo Kier picks up Linda Hayden, because I used to live not far from there. The house where the action takes place looks to be somewhere near Danbury. The film disappeared from the shelves soon after, and I have been wanting to see it again ever since. According to the preamble the print we have here has been assembled from various sources but because of age, there are some imperfections, but as far as I am concerned, better this than nothing. One of the extras is an interview with Linda Hayden, but this is actually an edited interview she did in 2003 so not quite the exclusive I thought it was. Also on the dic is a trailer and audio commentary by the director and producer. The film on the Blu-ray disc runs for 83mins 50secs at 24fps although it runs on after this to allow for audio commentary.

Although this release is from the USA, it is Region-free and both the Blu-ray and DVD discs play OK in my Region 2/B Blu-ray player.
