The Snorkel ★★½

I am aware that this is not a disliked film, I just find it hard to ascertain why. I suppose if you are a dedicated fan of 50s Brit cinema, for whatever reason, then this will fit the bill. maybe some Hammer fans are so loyal they will try and like anything the studio produced. But really this is pretty lame stuff and the 14 year old crying for her mummy all the time is a bit irritating. Perhaps the relationship between the two leads could have been beefed up a bit and we might have felt sorry for the big, little girl. Barely enough material here for a thirty minute TV episode so there is much repetition. I didn't really perk up until the sensational Poe ending only to find the film makers had chickened out.
