Just watching it now and was wondering... The house featured in this is Oakley Court. Were the interiors actually filmed inside Oakley Court for this? Looks like it is to me, very good sets if it isn't.

Very minor spoilers ahead...

There's a scene in this where Sonny bashes out a door panel with an axe, as the occupant of the room is trying to escape. All through the scene I'm thinking this is ripping off 'The Shining' but then I realised this film was made 10 years earlier than Kubrick's and when the panel finally gives way Sonny pops his head through the panel and shouts - in his best Brit schoolboy accent - "Hello!"




Funny how when we see a door being bashed in with an axe and then a face poking through it we always seem to think of Kubrick's film isn't it?

A rather odd but enjoyable movie - agreed?

Agreed.

I really rate it actually and would dare say it's in my top 10 favourite films. The way the characters talk, using children's playground speak is one aspect I really liked.

"You remember Tony Chestnut?"

"Toe, Knee, Chest, NUT!"

Vanessa Howard in her schoolgirl uniform helps things along nicely too.

Found this on wiki...

Whatever Happened To Vanessa Howard

Michael Bryant makes for most unlikely male 'escort' I'd ever imagined but he's really great in this. Great film.

She looks very cute too in SOME GIRLS DO, the follow-up to DEADLIER THAN THE MALE.

If you haven't seen these two then you simply must! They are essential viewing for fans of Eurotrash.

I haven't actually, you've just reminded me that I need to. I was going to watch 'May Morning' when I get home tonight but I'll stick 'Goodbye Gemini' on instead now.  :'(

The film was released on tape in the US by Prism but I don't recall if it was a Joseph Brenner theatrical release or a Cinerama one (Prism released titles from both catalogs).

Just heard a reliable rumour that this one is coming soon to R1!   :-\
There is a hunt for presskits, stills / lobbies....anyone got anything they want to see make the dvd?
All I have are scans from various auctions that I am sending, but I fear they won't be of much value.
