A review by John Chard

5.0
By John Chard

There is a heritage of disorder in our blood.

An unhinged Baron keeps his children as prisoners in the family mansion for fear they will inherit the family illness - insanity!

It's one of Hammer Films' most divisive productions, some laud it as a Gothic horror with art house veneers, others say it's simply pretentious tripe! The truth is that it's a bold and ambitious picture, a tricky narrative of mental health, incest and brutal patriarch pressure, all cloaked in the Hammer traits so prevalent in their 70s productions.

Cue blood and nudity, hammy acting, good acting, splendid costume... read the rest.
