lost/obscure brit films
« on: 04 Nov 2010 - 13:27 »

 1 PSYCHE 59
 B/W  Samantha Eggar / Curt Jurgens
 I saw this film on TV IN THE 60s , it was a weird psychological thriller with arty overtones
 truly a lost film
 2  THE HAND (1961) b/w
   A creepy brit horror about 3 soldiers captured by the Japanese , under threat of torture one
 cracks ,the other 2 have their hands cut off . Years later in London amputation murders begin ....
 Only saw this film once on TV , DIRECTED BY Henry "Blood of the Vampire" Cass.
 3 THE FROZEN DEAD (1966)
  Dana Wynter attempts to de-freeze Nazis in an old gothic house , with Anna Palk from "Tower
 of Evil " . A severed head barks orders , one of the actors is Phillip Gilbert who went on to direct
 "Blood and Lace " (1970) . Was on a double bill with " IT "
 4. THE VULTURE (1966 )
 Broderick Crawford plays a British squire .... haunted by the legend of an evil pirate and his pet
 vulture . It finally turns up Toho size ( or rather its legs do ) . Finally got this last year , a good
 quality dvdr with the trailer .
 5. CURSE OF THE COFFIN 
 Dont know a lot about this one , used to know an old cinema projectionist , who was always
 going on about this one .
 6 . GIVE US TOMORROW
 A Brit home invasion film with Derren Nesbitt
  Cant think of any more at the moment , but there must be more .

Are any of them ever likely to see release would you say?

And are any of them actually worth the effort, or are the synopses better than the films?!

 Give us Tommorow was on the t.v years ago its not a lost classic ,
  Derren Nesbitt and his mate hold a bank manager and family hostage ( Sylvia Sims is
 the wife ) . A very mild home invasion occurs . I remember seeing this in the Video search
 of Miami catalogue as a Last house on the left imitation ....
 I would love to see  The Frozen Dead again  ( Dana Wynters performance made it into
 the golden turkeys top 5 "worst performance as a Nazi scientist" ) Stills from the film were a
 mainstay in 70s horror film books , is it an American release or were there Euro releases as
 well ? .

What about THE DEVIL'S DAFFODIL (1961), the differently cast English version of the Edgar Wallace krimi DAS GEHEIMNIS DER GELBEN NARZISSEN? I'd love to check it out and see how it compares to the German version but it appears to be almost impossible to track down. Are there any known TV screenings or VHS releases of it anywhere?

 FROZEN DEAD
 "The plot concerns 1.500 high Nazi officials who have been frozen in "suspended animation"
 ingigantic meat lockers hidden in various caves throughout Europe . At the beginning of the
 Dr.Norberg receives orders from a Wermacht general (Karel Stepanek) to begin the defrosting
 process " Ive waited twenty years for this , and its cost the party a lot of money," declares
 the Aryan officer " but the stakes are tremendous - and worth every penny !"
 We can only presume that he means stakes and not steaks, since Norberg tries to revivify
 the Nazi elite rather than proceding to barbecue them ...."
