Great Fun - People Are Missing The Point.

This is one of my favourite films ever. As a marker, my top 3 are 2001, Apocalypse Now & American Beauty. I can't believe some of the silly, silly comments about it. It's not a horror, it's not a drama, it's kitsch, it was supposed to be and it is. Some people need to chill out and not take life so seriously.

I love it. Nicky Henson is just great. Beryl Reid & George Sanders & Roy Holder - all great. I saw this film the first time in 1987 on ITV late one night when I was in Sixth Form. It stuck in my mind for 5 years until it was finally repeated in 1992 and that time I made sure I taped it, the copy I still have.

There's no need for me to go into plot as that has been covered, but I do want to underline that this film should be taken light-heartedly! The plot is so funny, and the way it is filmed and acted just underlines it all the way through. Reading some of the reviews puzzles the Hell out of me - along the lines of "I was expecting a scary Hammer-style flick and I got this nonsense". Errr ... how can you bad-mouth a film because it wasn't what you expected? That's irrelevant. Surely you should review it for what it is?

If any of you guys see it in the TV schedules, make sure you watch & laugh! Real good fun, the methods the gang use to top themselves are hilarious and oh, the soundtrack! Enjoy - it's an order.

The coolest movie I have ever seen--no exaggeration!

I really don't want to say this is my favorite movie, but it sure is tempting. I know full well how cheesy and ridiculous it is... but it's also the most rockin', stylish, all-out groovy flick I have ever seen!

I have no idea why this is classified as a horror movie. As far as I can tell, it's meant to be a comedy. A very, very black comedy. The movie's brilliance is that it takes extremely touchy subjects and turns them into lighthearted jokes. The basic message, as far as I can tell, is that there is nothing wrong with mass suicide, anarchism, or devil worship... in fact, it can even be fun! Now, can they really be SERIOUS about this? I think not. The entire movie is a joke, and a very funny one.

With scenes such as a a biker jumping to his death after telling a cop "I'll be right down!", a biker blasting out of his grave on his motorcycle, a biker coming back from the dead in the morgue and calmly walking out like he just woke up from a nap, etc., all accompanied by some seriously sweet rock music, this is about as cool as it gets. I defy anyone to come up with a more entertaining movie than this.

What does the title have to do with the film? Who knows!

I've just watched this great film, and I just can't believe I haven't watched it sooner. What a movie! It's got everything a great seventies horror should have - groovy music (very reminiscent of Air's soundtrack for The Virgin Suicides), a well-spoken biker gang, hilarious suicide attempts, the living dead, as well as a bizarre occult fascination with frogs. Or were they toads? Who cares. It's a great film anyway, and I was pleasantly suprised at it's total lack of sex and gore. It just goes to show that you can have an entertaining horror film without resorting to exploitation.

And as for suprise endings, well, you'll never see this one coming, I promise you!
