Despite starring Hugh Grant and Peter Capaldi (in a kilt), it is Amanda Donohoe that steals the film. She stars as Lady Slyvia Marsh, our seductress snake-vampire villainess, who brings a wry humour and a bounty of sensuality to the film.
If you're a Russell fan you should know what you're in for and, overall, it's a well-constructed, entertaining film.
More pantomime than horror, Ken Russell's unsurprisingly outrageous romp exposes conflicting substrates of British identity.
A totally strange, gore-drenched horror/comedy about ancient pagan rituals that leaves you with only one certain thought in your head: that Ken Russell is one very bent fellow.
Fun-filled, oddball British vampire flick
Gleefully over the top - Ken Russell's last good movie.
Equal parts awful and hypnotic
Effective, unique horror movie.
Christianity and paganism clash in Ken Russell's campy The Lair of the White Worm.
An almost perfect savvy blend of horror and comedy that both honors the horror genre while standing it on its head.
One of the worst films I've ever seen.
Cheap effects and gratuitous displays of nudity only heighten the film's delirious demeanor.
A very good, odd British horror comedy!
Dood. Ohmygod, do you guys ever watch American Dad? I know exactly how Roger feels about Chockodiles. This is the best movie since sliced bread. Words cannot express how unfathomably amused I was by this movie. It's insane, but it knows how insane it is, and it punctuates its nuttiness with hot chicks and brilliant banter, just in case you weren't already on board. It's a fascinating twist on vampires, since these monsters aren't exactly undead. They're more like venomous immortal snake women who serve this ancient god, and can infect you with thier... hotness? Malevolence? It doesn't matter. Sylvia Marsh is one of my new favorite cinema villains, and she genuinely has a ton of fun exploiting the local archaelogical breakthroughs and generally bringing her evil to the simple townspeople. Snake woman, trippy imagery, valliant swordsmen and the angry angry Scottish dude from In The Loop. I dare you not to get a kick out of this movie. I dare you. My friend who let me this on DVD is totally not getting it back.
I liked the Idea with Pagan Snake, its like Medusa.
A phantasmagorical and deliberately overblown tale of pagan snake worshippers in modern Britain. Ken Russel's least self-important film, and also his most fun outing.
