Frightmare (Pete Walker, 1974)
« on: 19 Jul 2007 - 08:42 »

Last night I saw Pete Walker’s FRIGHTMARE from 1974 – a horror thriller that spends a fair amount of its modest running time establishing its characters and constructing an intriguing plot. I’ve only seen a couple of Walker’s other films – THE COMEBACK and SCHIZO. Suffice to say, FRIGHTMARE is good, solid British horror and enjoyable enough for me to accelerate some of the other Walker films I have up my “to watch pile”.

I love it, it's probably my favourite horror movie and Sheila Keiths performance is amazing.

I was toying with the idea of watching that tonight, along with HOUSE OF MORTAL SIN/CONFESSIONAL MURDERS.

Saw this first on TV years ago under the title ONCE UPON A FRIGHTMARE then later rented it under just FRIGHTMARE. I couldn't get into it although I should buy the Walker box set as I've always wanted to see FLESH & BLOOD SHOW. I could give FRIGHTMARE another go.

Is there a US Pete Walker box set? The UK set from Anchor Bay is very nice - it includes THE COMEBACK, FRIGHTMARE, HOUSE OF WHIPCORD, HOUSE OF MOTAL SIN (aka THE CONFESSIONAL MURDERS) and DIE SCREAMING MARIANNE.

THE FLESH AND BLOOD SHOW AND SCHIZO aren't available on UK DVD but are available in the US from Shreik Show and IMAGE, respectively.

Last night I saw HOUSE OF WHIPCORD which is another winner!

No, but Shriek Show have got several titles available under the banner headline of 'The Pete Walker Collection'. They've also released HOME BEFORE MIDNIGHT which isn't available in the UK (it's not a horror film though but is still of interest if you like his horror films).

Frightmare and Death Line are the two best British Cannabal movies for my money. Come to think of it, have there been any other British Cannibal movies?  :-\

There's going to be a Shriek Show repackaging of HOUSE OF WHIPCORD, FRIGHTMARE, DIE SCREAMING MARIANNE, and FLESH AND BLOOD SHOW in a boxed set in April that I'll probably pick up (Xploited usually has MB/SS's boxed sets at cheap prices).  Its too bad that the ABUK and ported SS transfer of FRIGHTMARE apparently does not compare well to the excellent Image disc which had no extras but an incredible looks-like-it-was-made-yesterday transfer.

I don't like you any more.

It's my favourite of the Pete Walker films. It's a real grower.

Careful, Kev. You saw what happened to Kenny when he and Aarron didn't see eye to eye...
