Editorial Reviews

Recovering from a failed marriage, Anna Robinson (The Three Lives of Thomasina's Susan Hampshire) retreats to the haunting, eerie climes of the Isle of Jersey, where she finds fulfillment in an affair with lighthouse keeper George (The Pianist's Frank Finaly). But when death strikes, Anna finds herself inconsolable and longs for the arms of her lover... who unexpectedly returns from the dead, with a few macabre changes awaiting them both. A lyrical, poetic, undiscovered gem of '70s British horror, now available for the first time ever!

Customer Reviews

This is a softly filmed work indicative of the romance genre, but with obvious exceptions.
T. Hunt
If you appreciate sinking into the mood, and watching the visuals, and letting yourself get emotional in a love story, you may like it very much.
bterrier
As its title suggests, this project doesn't know if it wants to be a romance or a horror film.

This is a very strange and little-seen film that has been unavailable for a very long time, so I applaud the decision to finally release it on DVD. Poorly received at the time of it's release, there were a few TV screenings in the late 1970's before it was all but lost - until this new edition. Susan Hampshire plays Anna, a woman who suffers such profound grief at the death of her lover that she somehow manages to bring him back from the dead. She doesn't do it intentionally though, and is at first thrilled, but then shocked and bewildered by his seemingly miraculous return. Unfortunately, although he can move about he's still dead in every other respect, so things can only go downhill for poor Anna.

I don't know how Redemption are treating the release in the way of extras, but at least they have managed to avoid putting a naked glamour model of the front cover for once. Its obscure status is probably because it's not particularly attention grabbing and moves at a very slow crawl for most of it's running time. Which is a pity because if you allow yourself to go with the very leisurely pace, it's actually an effective little story. It also has a great, mournful theme song that could only have been concocted in the 1970's!

Filmed outdoors in lots of cold and grey coastal locations, the film is really a bleak love story and probably bored a lot of people to death at the time, although it does sustain an effective mood. The chilly outdoor photography perfectly suits the remoteness and distance of the bizarre happenings from normal life, but be aware that the story is very slight and the material is handled in such an understated way that it feels more like a TV drama production than a feature film. However, I like it very much. Competently made and with good performances, it's a lot better than some of the other trash that passes for "cult" fan viewing.

This strange film is based on a book by a former British television newsreader and is a combination of love story and ghost story.

The settings are striking and the music score effective but it's a slow affair and one is baffled as to what market the film-makers were aiming for.

It still remains worth watching however if only for its being such a rare commodity in combining monster movie and love story.

Format: DVD
Neither the Sea Nor the Sand is a bizarre, paranoid film about Anna, a woman who travels alone to the Isle of Jersey in an attempt to sort out internally her troubled marriage. While out walking she meets Hugh the dreary lighthouse keeper. A romance promptly ignites from which the viewer is voyeuristically engaged until Hugh, engorged to capacity with the thrill of pursuit, keels over on the beach. She mourns the loss sedately for a short time before her lover, a bit gaunt, dedicatedly staggers back into her life.

I picked this up on a whim having no idea what I was getting into. The cover of the movie doesn't indicate its goings-on and the title is vague, yet I considered the brief synopsis and charged ahead with my usual apprehensions. I didn't expect much, but was pleasantly rewarded with what I believe to be a genuinely unique experience in undead cinema.

To start with, I wasn't particularly impressed with the cinematography, but felt that an adequate job was done considering the need to keep the protagonist's activities intimate and sheltered despite the interactions of the scripted outsiders. This is a softly filmed work indicative of the romance genre, but with obvious exceptions. There's a dead guy walking around.

Susan Hampshire carries a class and style in this piece that entranced me; she was both decidedly appealing and tragic. I wasn't as impressed with Michael Petrovitch, (Hugh), however, as he took on the wooden characteristics of the undead before actually becoming so. I think the only difference between his two states was his abilities to sprint and quote poetry ante mortem.

I do recommend grabbing this film if you're considering doing so.

This highly obscure British horror outing caught my attention at the time of its release, when one reviewer described it as "LOVE STORY meets TALES FROM THE CRYPT, with lots of unintentional laughs." Anna (Susan Hampshire), fleeing a stifling marriage meets and falls in love with a moody lighthouse keeper named Hugh (Michael Petrovich). Jetting off to Scotland for a romantic getaway, Hugh inexplicably croaks while capering on the shore. Pronounced dead by the local country doctor, Hugh inexplicably returns to life the next day. Setting up house in Jersey, Anna is so ebullient over Hugh's return that she neglects to notice that he's strangely silent, has no pulse and is rapidly decaying! When Hugh's bible-thumping brother (Frank Finlay) tries to disrupt this most unnatural household, he is dealt with rather severely. Alas, this literal "dead-end" relationship can only end in one way. As its title suggests, this project doesn't know if it wants to be a romance or a horror film. It's too leisurely paced for those out for cheap thrills, and the largely female audiences for love stories will be put off by the final scenes where Hugh begins to resemble day-old pudding. The "Monkey's Paw" variant storyline is likewise beyond threadbare. Filmed for little to no money (cast members were allegedly told to bring three changes of clothing to serve as their wardrobe), the fact that so few people seem to notice the couple's predicament seems dictated by budget more than anything else. The film does work as an unintentional parody of feminine denial and loyalty to "strong, silent" types. Now out on Redemption DVD sans their usual busty models gracing the cover, viewers can now examine this most unusual and heartfelt misfire at their leisure.
