You'll never hear the phrase "Mind the doors" in the same way again.
Donald Pleasence is given free rein to pretty much play Calhoun as he pleases, and if the portrayal is somewhat fanciful, it's also incredibly engaging.
Yes, it's a cannibal film, but it's also a startlingly tender film about a literal underclass abandoned by the world above, a story that roils in class division.
both unsettling and quite funny, often at the same time
The first (or only?) ethnographic urban legend horror film.
This under-rated British horror has the ragged edge and grim tone of a film made two years later - The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
The mining injustices of The Stars Look Down, transmuted into return-of-the-oppressed horror
One of the best horror films to emerge from Great Britain.
Its images of tunnelled emptiness should send a shiver of recognition down the spine of any city dweller.
Death Line is an effectively creepy low-budget horror film made with heart and wit.
"Raw Meat" ("Death Line" in the UK) has a cult following among horror buffs, but it's hardly top sirloin. The premise is that, back in the 1890's, a cave-in trapped a dozen construction workers far beneath the London streets. The group (which luckily included four women) survived on rats and each other's corpses for generations, but has mutated into a diseased breed that barely qualifies as human. Now, innocent people are disappearing from subway platforms, and it's up to the police and a young, hip couple to discover why.
"Raw Meat" is strangely short on action, needs a few more interesting characters and has an implausible final act (wow, these people track as well as any bloodhound). The film does have at least one good jolt, a marvelous Christopher Lee cameo, a fun score of farting synthesizers and one impressive long take (a winding, seven-minute survey of the mutants' decrepit lair). Best of all is Donald Pleasance's droll performance as a cynical detective who would rather be downing some pints than worrying about dank tunnels and rotting bodies. Still, this is hardly essential viewing. Proceed at your own risk, and mind the doors.
Silly horror premise is almost entirely sold with a heavy air of portent and tons of atmosphere. Pleasence is sleepwalking through this.
Cooky and fun little horror movie. Wonderfully shot and acted.
Great, early, over the top performance by Donald Pleasance.
