Editorial Reviews

Set in 1795 England, And Now the Screaming Starts! tells the tale of blissful newlyweds Catherine (Stephanie Beacham) and Charles Fengriffen (Ian Ogilvy) who move into his ancestral family mansion. On their wedding night, Catherine is raped by a malevolent spirit. She is further plagued by a series of haunting visions involving an eyeless woodsman and a murderous disembodied hand. Can a savage act of depravity and violence committed by one of Charles’ ancestors be to blame? Charles fears that his bride is going insane and calls for Doctor Whittle (Patrick Magee). Unable to help Catherine overcome her visions, Dr. Whittle calls for assistance from a fellow practitioner, Dr. Pope (Peter Cushing), who uses reason and logic to combat what he assumes is a mental disorder. In time, Dr. Pope finds himself fighting a losing battle against the forces of the supernatural carrying out a bloody family curse. Directed by Roy Ward Baker (Asylum, The Vault of Horror, The Monster Club) and produced by Amicus stalwarts Max J. Rosenberg and Milton Subotsky, And Now the Screaming Starts! has been mastered in High Definition from 35mm vault materials.

Format: DVD
The 70's were hard for horror fans; the only worthwhile films were produced on low bugets by a trio of studios (AIP, Hammer and Amicus). During much of the 70's Hammer's horror output became very uneven in quality. Amicus rose to the occasion putting out a series of worthwhile horror films that continue to work well because of the strong casting and interesting scripts/direction on the films.

"And Now the Screaming Starts!" has a loaded title which fits the film well. Charles and Catherine Fengriffen (Ian Ogilvy and Stephanie Beacham) have just moved into Charles' ancestral home. On their wedding night Catherine is raped by an an evil ghost or spirit haunting the house. After her attack she has a series of strange visions and dreams that disturb her. Charles fears for her sanity and calls on Dr. Whittle (Patrick Magee a part of the Amicus stable who also appeared in "Asylum" and "A Clockwork Orange") who, in turn, calls in Dr. Pope (Peter Cushing naturally)a doctor who uses science to cure mental disease. Pope believes that Stephanie has become unhinged but ultimately ends up in a supernatrual battle that even he doesn't expect.

This re-release from Dark Sky Films features a new high definition anamorphic transfer done from the original 35mm negative. Also included are yummy extras including commentary by director Roy Ward Baker and Stephanie Beacham and a second commentary track by actor Ian Ogilvy. Biographies for all the main cast/production team are included as well as a still gallery and trailers for other Dark Sky Films releases in the Amicus series. There are liner notes as well.

If you're a fan of this gothic thriller you can stop screaming about having to pay $50.00 for an out-of-print DVD and start screaming again now that it is on DVD at a reasonable price.

"And Now The Screaming Starts!" has the feel of a Hammer Studios horror picture, however, was made by it's rival studio Amicus. The English castle, the haunting story of the ill-fated couple who were so dreadfully wronged by an English nobleman, whose family now carries their curse, and the great atmosphere of the creepy house and it's weird goings-on, make this a fun ride for British horror fans. I video taped this movie from one of cable TVs movie channels, and immediately it became one of my favorites of the genre.

The time is 1795, in England, a young woman Catherine (Stephanie Beacham) moves to the house of her fiancé Charles Fengriffen (Ian Ogilvy) in the country to get married to him. When she arrives, she feels interest in the portraits of the Fengriffen family, particularly in the one of Charle's grandfather Henry Fengriffen (Herbert Lom), which seems to have a sort of evil entity possessing it. While admiring Henry's face, a severed hand attacks Catherine through the picture on the wall. Later, she gets married to Charles, beginning her journey of mystery, eerie apparitions, secrets and deaths. Her days are filled with fear and the nights with horrors in a family that has been cursed.

"And Now The Screaming Starts!" is part of "The Amicus Collection," along with "The Beast Must Die!" (1974) and "Asylum" (1972). I've yet to see the later two titles, but have ordered them from Amazon and should be receiving them shortly. The reviews I've read about them, especially "Asylum," are very good and I can't wait to see them! Here are some other great British horror classics that need to be on dvd, but who knows when that will happen.

The Gorgon (1964)

Fans of gothic horror should be very pleased with this offering. Peter Cushing is his usual fantastic self, only this time he is one of the few sane ones. A curse placed upon a sadist and his airs makes for a fast paced thriller born of the competition between Amicus and Hammer studios. While some compare this movie with The Hound Of The Baskervilles, the only similarities i see are that there is a curse, and Cushing is in both movies. The picture quality is very good and while the sound is in mono it too is good. Worth a look.

Format: DVD
I remember seeing this film when it first came out back in 1973 (on a double-bill with 'Terror in the Wax Museum'), and have not seen it since. However, after getting hold of the DVD yesterday, I was struck by how many of the film's images had stuck with me those many years. A rare non-omnibus film from Amicus, the film tells the story of a young bride brought to her husband's ancestral home (the house used in the film is the same one used as Frank-N-Furter's castle in 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'!) only to find that she is the victim of a curse that no one will tell her about. Stephanie Beacham and Ian Ogilvy are the newlyweds, and are quite good in their roles. Veteran performers Rosalie Crutchley ('Blood From the Mummy's Tomb'), Patrick Magee ('Asylum', 'Clockwork Orange'), Herbert Lom ('Asylum', 'Murders in the Rue Morgue') and Guy Rolfe ('Mr. Sardonicus') pop up and entertain before the arrival (nearly halfway through the film) of the fabulous Peter Cushing, as the doctor called in to help figure out why Stephanie is doing so much hallucinating and -- well, screaming. The best thing about this little gem of a film is the look of it. Horror vet Roy Ward Baker keeps things interesting by alternating moments of idyllic beauty with images of dark horror. He makes terrific use of the English countryside and the interiors. The music, by Douglas Gamely, utilizes a lovely, simple orchestral theme (which, when paired with the beautiful images is nearly breathtaking at times), but seems to 'borrow' heavily in the tense scenes from his previous score for 'Asylum.'
All in all, this is a film for all fans of British horror.
