1. No ad-hominem
2. No spamming or shilling
Tedious like Rudy Phucker.
Soundtrack by Bobby Beausoliel Freedom Orkestra. I think recorded whilst he was on prison - if so, then where they get the Moog?
Orig film score was by Jimmy Page who met Anger whilst bidding for a Crowley item. Page invited him to Crowley's house which he had bought in Scotland. But they fell apart (with Page's wife throwing Anger out) and the soundtrack wasn't used.
Anyways, shit from Kenneth Anger. Somefunk about Egyptian gods raising up Lucifer.
Despite the lame title, this is a good'un.
Sad to see the venerable actor, Dennis Price reduced to a bit role in something like this.
That is the little karlick (dwarf) that played Hop-frog in the Corman Poe adaptation.
Dig the part where coolcat Abraham strolls onto the grounds with that hipster Herb Alpertish muzack.
Get it on, Jimmeh!
This sucks so bad.
First third of film is totally unnecessary.
Teen thugs murder someone in the fairground Haunted House. They kidnap a stage magician and force him to drive them to his mansion where they can hide from the law. Normally this story could be laid down on film in 5 minutes. here it takes 25.
This movie is like watching Sammy Davis Junior do "Here Comes the Judge" on eternal loop in the middle of HELL.
Motorcycles amongst the Standing Stones.
The smooth, classy George Sanders in his last role.
The ubiquitous Robert Hardy. I mean - this actor shows up everywhere through all Brit cinema. He must have more roles than Christopher Lee!
They rate this one rather highly, but, IMHopo, good acting does not help much in a failing ,nothing plot: again we have teenage roustabouts making trouble. Zombie-motorcyclists and a pact with The Devil. Ho-hum.
In the end...a total waste
Atmospheric Pagan sacrifice film
David Niven, Deborah Kerr, David Hemmings, & Donald Pleasence get down onnit.
Crops failing...need blood. Holy Wickerman!!
You all know the mythology: over 2000 years ago there were three sister-monstrosities, The Gorgons whose gaze could turn men to stone..
The second sister, Medusa , is slain by Perseus, who beheads her , avoiding her gaze by looking at the reflection in his shield.
Well, this here Hammer film, proposes that the spirit of the third sister, Magrathea (or sumfink loike that) , goes to Austro-Hungarian pre WW2 times, possessing a woman's body and habituating a castle that has been empty the last 50 years.
This is a lesser known Hammer and one of the best ones. Good sets, solid acting (Lee, Cushing, and David Troughton (Dr Who). Also that actor wot was in the series, "Sorrell And Son" does a great job here. Director Terrence Fisher is associated with the better Hammers.
Totally shoite special effects at the end - where Lee beheads the Gorgon - but wot do you expect , its made in 1964.
Speaking of Wickerman, this has Edward Woodward in it. Cushing,Patrick McNee (Steed of The Avengers).
An Oxford don - he is no more than 25, yet a don! Jesus! It took me 40 years to become a Prog Masterman! - specializing in Greek mythology, falls in with a bad "happening" crowd of decadent youth on the islands of Greece.
You don't find out till most ways through this "film" that - of course - they are vampires of an old Greek Minoan cult.
They have put him under some sorta trance spell. Word gewts round of murdered teens in the countryside traced to this famous Oxford "don".
McNee and three others rush to Greece to find their friend and clear his name.
Antiques dealer (Jack Palance) has an African idol (the lovegod, Chewkoo) in the basement which demands chickiepoo-sacrifice.
Somehow they looped Hugh Griffith, Diana Dors and Trevor Howard into this rubbish
