Product Description

First ever release on DVD of this 1969 British Horror Cult Film now in a Brand New HD Transfer. Mumsy (Ursula Howells), Nanny (Pat Heywood) and overgrown 'children' Sonny (Howard Trevor) and Girly (Vanessa Howard) are a happy family living in a sprawling, decaying mansion.

The arrival of new friend (Michael Bryant) - a gigolo on the run after his girlfriend is accidentally killed while playing with Sonny and Girly, upsets the household with his very own brand of adult games playing the quartet off against each other. But Girly doesn't like to share her friends; not even with Mumsy and Nanny… SPECIAL FEATURES: Brand New 1.78:1 Anamorphic HD Transfer, Restored Original Mono Soundtrack, Original Theatrical Trailer, Spanish Trailer, TV Spot, Alternate US Title Sequence, Stills Gallery, Trailers for other Odeon Entertainment Releases.

Format: DVD
This is an odd little film from the obscure vaults. Directed by Freddie Francis whose other work includes the prestigious films, Evil of Frankenstein, Torture Garden, Dracula has Risen from the Grave and The Ghoul to name a few. Here, he shoots something quite different and unlike many films which you'll ever see really. I suppose this is closes to Spider Baby in feel, and it's quite a disturbing piece.

The film follows a single parent rich family. A Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly (as the alternative title suggests). Sonny and Girl are teenagers, who spend their days looking for tramps in the park, giving them alcohol in exchange for playing children's games in the park, before inviting them back to the mansion for tea. Brutal murder ensues. They up the stakes and lair a rich bloke to their home which leads to all sorts of dangerous depravity.

I knew I'd like this film before watching it and really hoped it would offer all I was expecting. This is a real gem of British cinema which will disturb as well as entertain any viewer. Vanessa Howard's performance as Girly is impeccable. It's a shame her career never took off. Michael Bryant as the rich new friend is also very good here, a quality British actor.

Groundbreaking in some ways, as we have tramp killing, ala Clockwork Orange, (1971) and breaking through a bedroom door with an axe very similar to Shinning (1980), with Sonny's face popping through the destroyed door. This was 1970!

The Long Arm [DVD]

This is a profound little work even if, on the face of it, it might appear otherwise. But therein lies the clue--paradox (non est, nisi est); and if anybody should draw a different conclusion I should be interested to hear from them.

"You must have rules" Mumsy reiterates time and again. "For without rules . . ."

In science we have laws; societies have laws; in sport we have rules and so on. These are human constructs; the natural world, in which we have a small part to play, functions regardless of rule or law. Yes, in physics we have the laws of thermodynamics'; in astronomy we have Kepler's laws of planetary motion and, again, these are all human constructs aimed at giving us a better understanding of the functioning of the natural world. But (and there are always "buts") in the natural world number and formula count for nothing.

In society, so the popular aphorism has it, rules are made in order to be broken (paradox). In sport you cannot have games without rules, yet competitors frequently break the rules in order to try to gain the advantage especially where material gain is to be had. There are laws and codes of conduct that are supposed to regulate behaviour in banking and commerce, yet top dogs are found to be continually flouting the rules; and when they are found out and obliged to resign, they generally walk off with a handsome dividend in the back pocket. (The fun from breaking the rules. We wear clothing in order to enjoy the excitement of having it removed in situations where full dress is generally acceptable, and so on.

Wickedly Entertaining & funny – this story could easily be performed as a stage production & it should have been. But for whatever reason it failed in cinema’s back in the day & has become largely forgotten in the UK – this being the catalyst for Vanessa Howard’s (one of the films leads) retirement from acting. What a wasted talent! I’m overjoyed that I purchased though, having been curious about it for many years. I’m also a fan of the work of Freddie Francis. Now I have seen it, the direction & performances are flawless! And Vanessa Howard is a joy to watch in one of the most mesmerising & wacky performances you will ever see – I couldn’t take my eyes off her! It’s a shame she didn’t go onwards to greater things – I read she married movie producer Robert Chartoff & moved to America, retiring from acting before she passed away in 2010, just before she had a chance to do a voice commentary for the DVD. What a shame! But now available again, this is a gem that should be seen, by all those who want something truly original & fun.

So if you’re into something rare, seemingly off the cuff & weird, then this is for you. You won’t be disappointed. Similar to cult movies of the same era such as The Wicker Man & A Clockwork Orange, this has certain scenes that are unforgettable & will live long in the memory of the viewer. Without giving too much away, the scenes in the kitchen when the family are generally trying to be normal, or are being as normal as they think, are side splitting.

This is a flawless black comedy which I will view & enjoy many more times. Give it a go & enjoy the ride!

Freddie Francis is one of the best horror directors who gets ignored way too much. This is a fine movie about a family of crazy buggers and their adventures bringing in victims for games of horror. Well done and fun this DVD plays on regular dvd players here in the States.Would have loved some commentary but that is a quibble. Great fun film.
