    I am now older than Peter Cushing was when he made this. He certainly appears to be much more of an adult than perhaps I'll ever be.

    Anyhow, that aside I think I love this more and more each time I watch it. Cushing and Lee were such a marvellous pairing, but this is Cushing's movie and he just rules so impressively throughout. Plus, he has amazing sideburns.

    Special mention to Valerie Gaunt, who made this and Dracula, then quit acting. What a legacy!!

    I'd become a bit bored of all the Marvel output, but was drawn to this as I'd heard that flashes of the Raimi of old were back. Indeed they are, and that is when this movie is at its best. It also made me want to delve back into some more Raimi, which I did the following evening.

    Cronenberg's most commercial film is surprisingly one of his most gross - in a good way of course. There are some keys scenes in this movie, which live with you for years and will have turned as many on to the rest of his work as they turned off. For me the vomit drop destroying Flesh and the maggot baby are those key scenes that I still find a little hard to watch!

    Golblum is twitchy and odd. Perfect casting.…
