As one of the questioners said afterwards this brought back fond memories of my youth, reading about films for years before finally tracking down some 19th generation laserdisc dub from a sketchy bloke at a market ... great days :) As for the film itself, the beginning was really dodgy... bit too ch...

The good - atmospheric, tense, gripping, good performances, 3 or 4 brilliant shock scenes (as others have said, the girl crawling amidst lots of dead versions of herself was fantastic). The bad - it just didn't really make sense, did it? My conclusion is that either I'm a bit stupid or the story doe...

Really enjoyed this. Have been meaning to see it for ages ... since I was a teenager trying to get hold of everything on the video nasties list really :) It didn't disappoint at all, and I'll definitely be getting the DVD now. Especially enjoyed the freak bloke, and the way he killed the ginger dude...

Once the action got in to gear, though, it was pretty enjoyable with quite a few decent laughs. That said, thought quite a few of the scenes involving th...

Like others was put off by the director claiming cult status for the film by default, however I guess the stage musical pretty much has built up its own following so it's not totally unwarrented. His lament that most films are the same though was ridiculous. Firstly it's just not true that everythin...

Didn't really make sense, and as many have already said why the heck was it so dark ... it was so bad you pretty much couldn't tell who was hitting who with what in a number of the action sequences, which renders the whole scenes pointless. All I could think at the end, though, was just how much I c...

Thought the opening was great, with the loud music, weird visuals and OTT nonsense about blood lines etc ... plus the whole bit as he was released from prison was great stuff with the sweaty warden screaming to the bloke over the phone that everything was going to end badly :). After that it all wen...
