Eerie, disturbing Hammer horror movie, with a truly haunting ambiance and some truly disturbing imagery. It's slightly incoherent (reportedly due to last minute cuts right before release) and has repulsive undertones, but there's no denying its uniqueness among the Hammer cannon and its ability to linger long in the viewer's memory. A forgotten gem. Directed by Robert Young.
