Editorial Reviews

Peter Cushing (Star Wars) and Robert Flemyng (Battle of Britain) star in this classic horror film. A crazed etymologist is dabbling in gruesome experiments that are turning his beautiful daughter into a vampire-beast with an insatiable lust for blood! From Cushing's investigations of the opening atrocities to the fieryfinale--this gory thriller from legendary director Vernon Sewell (Ghost Ship) is definitely not for the squeamish! Newly remastered in HD.

Customer Reviews

It embodied very good acting and story plot.
A. McDaniel
He lends credibility to what is otherwise a ludicrous -though extremely enjoyable- monster movie.
Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein
Enjoyable hocum salvaged by Peter Cushing, who couldn't give a bad performance if he wanted to.

Let's face it, this movie was a low-budget horror film with bad special effects. But, it does have one saving grace; Peter Cushing is wonderful as a police detective trying to follow the trail of a blood-feasting (totally ludicrous and campy) giant moth woman.
The picture quality of the DVD is fairly good, and the sound is fine. It is presented in letterbox, which is much more pleasing to view then the Pan-and-Scan vhs copy that I first saw this picture on. The setting is Victorian, and having a British cast, the performances are believable and elegant (even if swallowing the idea of a giant Deaths-Head moth makes you gag a little). If your after a film of the quality of "Horror of Dracula", or "Curse of Frankenstein", then don't bother. But if your a die-hard Peter Cushing fan, like I am, you'll probably enjoy this movie, as I do. There's not much suspense, but there is plenty of dry British humor, and some fine performances. Just don't expect to be dazzled by the special effects. Think of it as Sherlock Holms meets Gozilla, and you'll do fine.

"The Blood Beast Terror", is a very enjoyable and well constructed little horror tale which suffers because of the weakness in the appearance of the monster of the title which is a giant Death's Head moth that takes human form. The lack of imagination used in its construction detracts from what is otherwise a very atmospheric and beautifully filmed story which may not certainly be the most frightening tale ever filmed but still has alot to commend it. Peter Cushing one of England's foremost horror movie performers lends his usual dignified presence to the proceedings here and helps lift this 1967 Tigon productions feature at times almost up to the same level as his great accomplishments with the famed Hammer Studios horror efforts.
Despite this films quite sensational title, the storyline once you get past the idea of the Giant Moth Creature, is actually an evenly paced mystery drama that takes its time to reveal all the secrets of what is occuring. Along the way we are treated to a very handsomely constructed film set in Victorian times, the usual favourite time period for these British Horror efforts. Peter Cushing plays Inspector Quennell who is investigating a series of ghastly murders where the victims are found drained of their blood and savagely marked with horrific wounds that seem to have been inflicted by some strange undefinable animal. Finding at the site of the latest murder some strange scaley scraps off some type of insect or reptile Inspector Quennell begins to have his suspicions in particular of expert entomologist Dr. Mallinger (Robert Flemyng) who seems to be quite evasive when questioned about possible causes of death for the victims. Unbeknown to the Inspector Dr.

For anyone who owns the 2000 Image DVD of this movie, or remembers it from TV viewings back in the day, I just wanted to mention that the remastered Redemption Blu-ray is a tremendous improvement over the Image edition. Merely to say that the sharpness/detail, brightness/contrast, color saturation, and color balance are vastly improved would be an understatement. I knew when watching the Image DVD (which I only picked up a year or two ago, damn!) that the quality of the transfer wasn't very good, but I had no idea this movie could ever look this terrific. Besides being in 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen (in contrast to the letterboxed Image DVD), it's sharp as a tack, much brighter, with excellent contrast and black levels and virtually no speckling or scratches, and reveals far more detail, especially in the darker scenes where the Image transfer just turns to muck.

And the color!! Deeply saturated and vivid, with natural fleshtones and a gorgeous palette of reds, greens, lavenders, and yellows that pop off the screen. It seriously looks like it could have been shot just a few years ago. Not exactly reference quality, but damn near. And if you haven't upgraded to Blu-ray yet, I'm sure the Redemption DVD will still put the Image disc to shame. Cueing up and comparing the two directly made me want to just throw the Image DVD in the trash (though I'll probably give it to someone instead). It's a murky, blurry, speckly, nearly monochromatic mess compared to the Redemption remaster.

And to top off the fabulous transfer, the movie is the uncut British version, running seven minutes and change longer than the Image disc (which was apparently edited for time, not naughty bits or anything like that, sorry) even though they both have the British title and credits at the beginning.

At least that was one of the more lurid titles this picture was shown under, here in The States. Peter Cushing is a Victorian police detective investigating a bizarre series of bloody murders; Robert Flemyng is an entymologist who has somehow created a gigantic vampire moth who can masquerade as a beautiful woman. If you get past the laughable concept of a humanoid moth, the movie's not bad, and benefits greatly from Cushing's presence.

In the late 1960's, Hammer films was still doing fairly well and there were a number of other companies that tried to copy and compete with them. Amicus was the main one and they had a number of films that were just as good if not better, another company was Tigon films and they are the creators of this particular film. They pulled in Peter Cushing to play a policeman who is investigating a series of bizarre and brutal killings. Cushing has his suspects and follows them, but his daughter is pulled into the plot as she becomes a source of blood for a moth creature that is being created as a mate for the existing moth creature. Is this a good film? No does it have it's moments? Certainly The story is in someways lacking, but Hammer's Gorgon and the Reptile don't either and they manage to be entertaining. There is some action, Peter Cushing gives a solid showing and I really thought the sets and use of locations was really well above average foe a British horror film. The film seems to have gaps and a number of missed opportunites. They would fins a lead, but then people would stand around and mutter about until you start to get bored, then they will peak your interest again and then mill around some more. It is not boring, they just have a lot of time where they could have inserted some more action or clues or maybe some more about how or why this women can turn into a giant moth. Ultimately, this film is somewhere in the middle of British horror films of the day. It does a number of things right, but Tigon was number three for a reason. I must also say that I had never seen a video done by Image entertainment before, but thet did a good job as the film is of fairly sharp quality.
