I caught this on TCM a few weeks back, it was a decent little film with a kickass score

Apparently the MGM-sourced TCM broadcast looks a lot better than the MGM-sourced ABUK disc.

I was really happy with the print, it looked much better than I expected. TCM are very hit and miss lately, their print of CONTEMPT looked like it'd been dragged behind a truck down a dirt road.

Has anyone picked up the Odeon DVD? Any comments on the re-mastered print?

Aye, same here.  :D

Recently re-watched it, inspired by the BBC series HISTORY OF HORROR, it's a real quality film. I'd forgotten just how good it is.

I just picked it up - going to be reviewing a whole batch of Tigon films in the next month or so - and the quality is superb.

fantastic film indeed.

i saw something on telly about it a few months back.
it was regarding the rape scene.
one of the main men the director or producer though looking back he felt the rape scene went to far.
to extreme,graphic.

u must admit its a pretty rough scene.

Being a tight arse i waited and waited for the price to drop on the odeon disc.It has not dropped but i picked up a copy anyway,and i can only say what was mentioned above,it looks fantastic.This is my first time viewing the film so i cant compare it to any other releases but it was well worth the £10.

A quick question,If linda hayden was only 17 in the film how is it that she was allowed to perform nude scenes.My understanding is that to model/act in the nude you have to be 18 or above.Is that wrong,or is there a difference in age for cinema performance or pornography perhaps.I would not have even thought she was that young but in the liner notes it says she was 17.

Anyway was really impressed with the restoration so have just ordered their restored discs of 'the asphyx' and 'mumsy nanny sonny and girly'

i think back when this film was made you could get away with more than you do now.
i remember nastassija kinski was under 18 in to the devil a daughter and she did nude scenes and nothing was said.
if either of those happened today there would be hell to pay.

Actually it is a very grey area - afterall Keira Knightley was well under 18 in 'The Hole' while Thora Birch was only just turning 17 during the filming of 'American Beauty'.

The laws are more to do with sexualised nudity and exploitation, so none of them could have appeared naked in a sex scene at that age presumably.

The law in this country used to be that it was legal to be photographed nude from the age of 16 with written consent from parent/guardian. The law changed in, I believe, 2004 raising the age to 18.

Fuck knows if this applies to film though, or how the law is applied retrospectively.

Well in the booklet liners it says that linda hayden appeared nude at 15 in a film called 'baby love' so that doesnt make much sense.You guys must be right,its just it threw me off guard a bit as i thought any nude modelling required a minimum age 18

An odeon representative has said that this will be getting a blu ray release next year,so people may want to hang on a little if they are planning on picking this up
