It's not a great horror film. It's not a great comedy film. I would be amazed if it is a great paperback (I've not actually read it... can you imagine the looks I would get on the bus?) but this was too bizarre to pass up: the official novelisation of Britain's BLOODBATH AT THE HOUSE OF DEATH, the now (and then) obscure movie starring one of my heroes: Kenny Everett!
I've got a bootleg copy of the movie stashed away but it is a while since I've seen it. I remember being - for the most part - underwhelmed when I did. But, after finding this, it feels like one I should revisit again.
as obscure movies go , this one must rank high along with SIR HENRY AT RAWLINSON'S END.ReplyDelete
speaking of which, SIGHT & SOUND have just printed my letter in which I bemoan the lack of cult/obscure movies on tv.
Kenny Everett was totally unfunny and over-rated. I'll never forget or forgive his infamous appearance at the Tory youth rally during the 1983 general election. Is it a coincidence that his career went downhill after that ?ReplyDelete
