Editorial Reviews

Banned in Britain for thirty years, The House on Straw Hill is a shockingly violent and erotic tale of seduction, brutality and revenge. Cult movie icon Udo Kier (Mark of the Devil, The Theatre Bizarre) stars as a successful novelist suffering from writer's block, who rents a country cottage in the hope of finding inspiration. But the arrival of a sensual secretary, played by Linda Hayden (Blood on Satan's Claw, Taste the Blood of Dracula) sets in motion of chain of events that culminate in an unrestrained explosion of sex and savagery. Also known as Expos‚ and condemned as a Video Nasty in the UK, this sleazy classic from Brian Smedley-Aston (Vampyres) and co-starring the notorious Fiona Richmond - 'Britain's No.1 sex symbol' - is now fully restored from the only uncut elements and is available for the first time in the US with brand new extras! Bonus Features: Audio Commentary with director James Kenelm Clarke and producer Brian Smedley-Aston; All-new interviews with director James Kenelm Clarke and star Linda Hayden; Theatrical Trailer

Customer Reviews

This was the reason I regret buying this.

Fiona Richmond really has no acting talent at all, her inclusion in the film is purely for visual purposes (she gets naked in every scene she appears in).
A. Griffiths
It's just a warning, yes the film is worth your time, but expect a drive in quality print not something you'll be thrilled to see in 1080.

The archivists at Severin Films have restored and possibly saved Writer/Director James Kenelm Clarke's brilliant 'THE HOUSE ON STRAW HILL' aka 'EXPOSE' aka 'TRAUMA'-1976 for Horror and exploitation fans. Banned in England from 1984 to 1997 being branded a notorious video nasty when that insanity was running rampant on the video industry at that time, its great to view this restored version to prove their was really nothing to get the holier than thou politicians knickers into such a snit. Cult Euro actor Udo Kier portrays a hyperactive novelist who goes into seclusion at his summer countryside cottage to scribe his latest novel and decides to hire a typist to help him with his writers block but strange things begin to occur. The underrated actress Linda Hayden is at the peak of her form as the sensual siren typist with an ulterior motive and Fiona Richmond plays Kier's dominated mistress. I don't want to give away the sum of the plot, suffice it to say that this film is the closest that British Cinema came to making their own take on the Italian Giallo. Kier seems to be dubbed but does quite well in his performance coming off his cult status in both Andy Warhol's productions of Director Paul Morrissey's 'BLOOD FOR DRACULA' and 'FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN' both 1973. It is Linda Hayden who steals the show and gives one of her best performances trying to use her sex pot image to enhance the tragedy. If you want to see how underrated she truly was, view this film and her performance as Angel Blake in Director Piers Haggard's masterpiece of Pagan superstition 'THE BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW'-1970 (c'mon Severin Films, please give this a digital release in this country already!).Read more ›

I'll give this a generous two stars for the movie and four for the presentation. The plot is pretty threadbare and there are some absurd plot twists. It's closer to soft porn than a horror/thriller really, as the characters have a frequent tendency to get physical with each other. At one point Linda Hayden's character starts kissing Fiona Richmond despite the total lack of any kind of attraction or flirtation between them up to that point, while her boyfriend is in the house, and she enthusiastically goes along with it. It's that kind of movie.

Fiona Richmond was a "glamour model" and seems right at home here, but Hayden and Kier really seem to be slumming it. In the interview with Hayden included in the extras, she spends quite a bit of time bashing the movie, even saying it's the only movie she's ashamed of making. And she worked mostly in B movies that were often lacking in quality.

This is one of those discs where the extras actually were more interesting than the movie, especially if you can get a copy with the documentary about the Video Nasties scare. I'd heard of the nasties scare but had no idea how far the censors went, even raiding the homes of some movie collectors to make examples of them.

It really made me appreciate being an American. Yes, there's censorship here too, but it's never come close to going that far in my lifetime. The MPAA can be bad, but they don't have the ability to ban a movie outright and when it comes to the home video market, there isn't much government censorship. That's mostly limited to stuff that involves crimes being committed, like child pornography.

The 3-disc limited edition includes the great documentary "Ban the Sadist Videos". Also the feature film itself is uncut and from the best possible sources available. The Linda Hayden interview is informative. It is a worthwhile release, especially for people into 'video nasties'.

Kudos to Severin Films for bringing this cult classic back! "House On Straw Hill" is a classic example of mid-70's european exploitation thrillers. Udo Kier is great as a writer seeking help with his novel...needless to say, a LOT more than that happens...well worth the effort to see, especially because Severin has included some amazing extras as well...click on my link for the entire story of the terrific material included on this blu-ray release.

This movie is one of the video nasties so I expected more. The plot isn't that strong and the acting is mediocre. The DVD's picture quality is below what I would expect. I haven't watched in Blu-Ray.
