Although enough of a cult favourite to spawn a trio of undistinguished sequels, this low budget independent horror movie is a surprisingly shambolic affair whose moments of genuine invention stand out amid the prevailing incompetence.

This is one movie with a cult following that I'd be embarrassed to be a part of.

Passable in spots, it offers dumb fun and turns out to be one of the best films that Coscarelli ever made

Doesn't fall into any of the easily-classifiable genres, and I suppose that's one of the reasons it's so well-remembered all these years later.

Antagony & Ecstasy

One of the definitive '70s horror pictures, in the last few months before '70s horror got steamrolled into oblivion... a raw blast of sensory information.

Coscarelli made this with very little money but with plenty of imagination.

Strong point of the feature is that it's played for both horror and laughs.
