Twisted Nerve (Roy Boulting, 1968)
« on: 07 Jul 2010 - 15:06 »

Absolute classic which I haven't seen for years. Really need to catch up with this one soon.

Twisted Nerve - Amazon.co.uk


Cleaver. Cleaver. Chop. Chop.

First the Mom and then the Pop.

Then we'll get the pretty girl.

We'll get her right between the curl.

I watched this a few years ago when Optimum put out the UK DVD. It’s a good film. I know the controversial link between psychosis and Downs’ Syndrome doesn’t hold up as a plot device today, but there’s a lot of style to spare and Bennett and Mills are both good. Pretty sure the UK disc is fullscreen, if memory serves me right.

This is the only Boulting Bros. film I’ve seen. I know that TWISTED NERVE is something of an anomaly as most of their other films are either dramas or comedies but I’ d appreciate any recommendations all the same.

I picked this up from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and totally agree with Jonny and Paul, well creepy and well worth picking up at that price.

That's how I last watched it too! About 16 years ago I reckon.

I've got this sitting here sealed ..   Gonna watch it tonight finally.  I definitely enjoy some Haley Mills once in awhile.  Not as much as Roy Boulting did though!

And from the same writer as PEEPING TOM, which it has a similar feel to.

I wasn't aware of that - just looked him up on IMDB and see that he also played Satan in LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST  :-\

If you want recommendations for Boulting Bros films then you can't go far wrong with I'M ALL RIGHT JACK, it's a bit dated but Peter Sellers as Shop Steward Fred Kite is an absolute hoot and one of his best performances.  It also features a fantastic cast of famous British character actors/actresses.  It's prequel A PRIVATE'S PROGRESS is also worth looking up.

Isn't the UK disc the only release? I have it and although it's fullscreen, it looks pretty good.
