I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on And Soon the Darkness, Comp. I think you'll thoroughly enjoy it.

I watched AND SOON THE DARKNESS this evening - very languidly pasced flick with a superb build of tension towards the end. I sussed the conclusion, though it didn't spoil my overall enjoymant of the film. Nicely directed too.

Ah thanks for the reminder on this one. I forgot all about it but will give it a watch soon. The Avengers team too.

I'm going to throw in Pete Walker's Schizo - again not very impressive unfotunately. A shame really as there were some excellent moments.

Yeah, I'd have to agree with that. Schizo started out well, but it became apparent very quickly where it was headed and the 'twist' was signposted too far in advance. It's still an enjoyable watch, but, as Drac points out, despite some impressive moments, it could have been better executed overall. I still like it nonetheless and I'm gald to have it on DVD in my collection.

jonny   herman cohens horrors of the black museum had all the elements that we associate with italian gialli, the outrageous over the top murders and the lurid atmosphere, the constant baiting of scotland yard by the killer. imo this film was a british blueprint for what was to be filmed years later in italy since black museum was very violent for 1958.
