      Audience Member A Hammer Horror film wannabe lacks the atmosphere, attractive stable of actors, and smart scripting. Written and directed by Sidney J. Furie, who'd later go on to make "The IPCRESS File," "Lady Sings the Blues," and the minor horror classic "The Entity." This film lacks the polish of those film, which may have been due to this film's low budget nature, and suffers for it. The story begins with a mentally ill woman being injected with snake venom, but when she gives birth to a daughter years later... well, you can probably guess what happens when the film picks up years later when there are a series of mysterious deaths. The plot did have potential to be something fun, but the film is instead overly talky and lacked any real scares or suspense. If you're craving reptilian themed horror, stick with Hammer's excellent 1966 film "The Reptile" instead. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member There's a little interest and a short runtime, but the flat characters and dull pacing hurt it. The premise is nice but the mystery isn't too exciting. There are a few fun moments though. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
