#TBT THE CREEPING FLESH started production with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee 45 years, 9 months, I week and 5 days ago . . .today, in 1972 at Shepperton studios. Tigon films the company behind the film were a pretty small production company, and released 17 films in the years 1967 and 1970. some were misses, but mostly hits, Witch-finder General, Blood on Satan's Claw, The Sorcerers, Doomwatch, The Blood Beast Terror, The Creeping Flesh and western Hannie Caulder, with Christopher Lee...all made money! The Creeping Flesh stands maybe in a class of it's own. Well cast, a frightening and puzzling script, very good production values..and yet it's the one film that probably gets mistaken for a Hammer film production, more than any other here. I would take that as a compliment! Do you have a fav TIGON film??
