#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: 1974: The very first whispers I heard about a films called 'Confessions of a Blood Drinker aka The Big Shock aka La Grande Trouille . . .was in 1975, the word was, chaos. Rumbling, Shambolic, Rubbish. Then I received a set of beautiful colour mat finish press photographs..you can see them in out feature at the website...then House of Hammer magazine ran a black and white feature, made no sense. It wasn't until 1985 that I finally saw a print, with subtitles. It made no difference. It was still everything they said it was...and more. A delux car crash in movie making. Everything that you THOUGHT Cushing stood for in his art, this one flies in the face of! It wasn't the only time Cushing made a dead duck, where the best thing to come out of the venture, were the press photographs! And here is one now . . .
#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: 1974 Director Paul Annett talks about directing the 1974 Amicus films, 'THE BEAST MUST DIE' starring Peter Cushing, Charles Gray, Anton Diffring, Calvin Lockhart, Marlene Clark and Michael Gambon. Behind the scenes stills and clips . .The story is, in essence, an intersting mix of Agatha Christie’s 'And Then There Were None' (aka, Ten Little Indians) and Richard Connell’s The Most Dangerous Game, with elements of the werewolf mythos stirred in for good measure with .... The Werewolf Break, being the cherry on the top!
#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: 1974 As usual some of posts here are also posted, a little earlier at our Peter Cushing Appreciation Society Facebook Fan Page , and after posting the one at the top of this thread first on facebook, about Peter Cushing's film, 'Tendre Dracula' . . I received a message from Andre Toutlinee, who suggests that, 'I can't believe that Tendre Dracula could be THAT bad a film! I mean how bad was it it for you to say that it was a car crash of a movie??' Well, Andre... How bad was it?? It was THIS bad, (see pics above) Peter looks interesting as a vampire...but the film's cinema poster??? What...were..they...thinking??? OR smoking???
