This week's #monstermonday features WANDA VENTHAM as the 'terror' factor of the title, 'The Blood Beast Terror'. It's an interesting film, with a monster that never truly gets the screen time or during production, the money invested in its look! The film also features a performance from our man that often gets overlooked. His Detective Inspector Quennell has some very nice touches, and Cushing slips in some lovely black comedy. Robert Flemyng steps in for a absent Basil Rathbone, and Vanessa Howard makes a great naive teenage daughter, for PC, wide eyed and fluttering lashes...and talking of fluttering, without giving too much away, Wanda's Death Head moth, isn’t that bad, I have seen much worse.
So, a performance from PC that's definitely worth a watch, good supporting cast...and the monster? The jury is still out on that one. What do you think?
