Gloriously slimy, frightening horror classic.
on 17 February 2016
Barbara Crampton is outstanding as Doctor Katherine Mc Michaels, at first showing adoring naivete, then gradually degenerating as Pretorius' invention addicts her. Barbara Crampton is amazing in the role. A perverted sense of sexuality drives these characters to extremes. Stuart Gordon always has a great sense of giving character's with real depth, investing them with harrowing psychological damage from the horrors they've witnessed. Great writing from Dennis Paoli, working wonders from H.P. Lovecraft's short story. Jeffrey Combs; Ken Foree and Ted Sorel are all excellent. Superb very gooey and slimy physical effects, which stand up today. Its a pity that Stuart Gordon doesn't make more movies. All the elusive trims are seamlessly included in this uncut, beautifully restored DVD. Also included in this excellent Second Sight and MGM disc you'll be spoiled by the wealth of extras! A commentary track, featurettes and interviews with production staff, including beautiful star Barbara Crampton.
