    This is what happens when you move to Cornwall. A couple move into a cottage left to them by the man's deceased brother. But when they arrive they find that mysterious deaths plague the quiet countryside. This film was fantastic fun, and looked stunning on Blu-ray. There are a series of interesting characters, especially the Dr. Franklyn, who is very abrasive and cold, but all for good reason. You get a real sense, thanks to Willman's performance, that there is a kind and considerate man trying to get out. The make-up is amazing and the monster is very unsettling to look at. I believe this may be my first real Hammer film that I've seen and I can't wait to watch some more. Chilling, fun, and also a bit camp around the edges.

    Made back to back with 'Plague of the Zombies' this uses many of the same sets and a couple of the actors. Like Zombies both Lee and Cushing are sadly missing from this Hammer film but there isn't really a decent part for them to get their teeth into. The monster is only really seen in short bursts but the repurcussions of her bite are some nasty looking corpses. It'd good to see Ripper getting a decent amount of time in the limelight and most of the acting here is pretty solid. Laurie steals the honours as Mad Peter but is killed off too quickly. The make-up for Pearce is pretty good but she isn't as effective here as she is in Zombies. The one thing that struck me was that the film was nowhere near horrific enough and I found myself getting a little bored.

    more strange goings on in the cornish countryside. the reptile builds good suspense with plenty of spooky atmosphere but the creature itself is a bit of a letdown. cheers to hammer for featuring a female monster tho :)

    As with most Hammer horror, it's dated but still an enjoyable watch. If you can forgive the bad make up effects, they were on a budget after all.
