Frequently Bought Together
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. Sonny and Girly bring friends home to play but if they don't obey the rules, they are tried and 'sent to the angels'. 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.

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!
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.Read more ›
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!

I love this film.
No idea why it was panned when released and gets poor reviews in the film guides, as it is a hilarious bit of quirky fun from 1970. Read more
