A very disappointing and in many ways misdirected film sad as it could have been so much better
on 4 December 2016
A film from the Hammer horror, stable but not a real horror movie or scary movie that I found to be more in the realm of fantasy and drama, it has a plot that starts off in Africa but the film was nothing to do with Africa, it was about witches in a northern English town. So why have a scene involving Africa witch doctors, when it nothing to do with the story was just marketing shock effect. Joan Fountaine gave very unconvincing performance and looked very ill with her wax doll complexion. A very disappointing and in many ways misdirected film sad as it could have been so much better.
