Movie Info

Loosely based on a cult of assassins in early 19th-century India known as "thaga" (pronounced "tahg"), the villains in this routine, part-horror, part suspense story are causing problems in the East India Company and throughout Bombay.

Audience Reviews for The Stranglers of Bombay

Veering away from the sci-fi and gothic horror that was Hammer Films' bread and butter, The Stranglers of Bombay serves as a testament as to why their few adventure epics were more of a curious appetizer you later regret but ultimately convince yourself "at least you tried it" to rationalize the 90 minutes of your life you spent watching it. Reasonably well directed by Terence Fisher the movie isn't absolutely horrible but more of a dull story that was well photographed. Nothing too exciting, but it made me want to get a pet mongoose and watch Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom again. Again, not Hammer's finest hour but you can do a hell of a lot worse...
