    Hooptober 8.0 #1:

    I don't really have anything clever or insightful to say about this film.

    It's not horror, but horror-adjacent. Like the vast majority of Hammer films I've seen its combination of quaintness, age, and pastoral tone made this an incredibly pleasant watch. The stakes were not especially high for this film, and it hit all its marks.

    I was really picking up what Tobe Hooper was putting down. Seriously, how is there not more buzz around this movie as an all-time classic?!

    Now one of my favorite opening credits of all-time. And a PERFECT example, just like with Creepshow, of creating a pre-code horror comic on film. The shots and set pieces and colors were on-point. The characters were sufficiently caricatured to be ludicrous. And the plot mechanics are just terrific.
