Tower of Evil is no masterpiece, but an interesting predecessor to the modern slasher film. It often comes across as a poorer version of Mario Bava's Twitch of the Death Nerve in terms of exploitation and gore, not in terms of story at all. Fans of Friday the 13th and the like will probably find much to savor here, sex and nudity, brutal murders and a final twist at the end, just for good measure. The disc, by the way, looks wonderful, makes you worship the power of DVD, horror fans should pick this one up.

Another terrific early seventies creep-fest. With me it's always about mood and atmosphere. This one also has some good gore and of course great bell-bottoms. There is just something about watching this one late at night with the lights off and a beer in your hand. Somehow it just seems perfect.

Format: DVD
Okay: (1) The acting *is* wank (except for Dennis Price); (2) the script is hilarious (One classic exchange: "If Penny didn't kill those kids, then who did?" "Someone else, obviously."); and (3) the "twist" ending is absurd (although it predates by one year the strangely similar finale in _Don't Look Now_).
But: This movie is lots of fun. AND it can still generate a couple of screams!! Imagine a live-action, British version of Scooby Doo for adults. This movie is the product of the same time and mindset as the cartoon. It has everything the horror movie fanatic could want: gory murders (even the old severed head rolling down the stairs), secret tunnels, buried treasure, a hint of evil spirits, madness, a monster, sexual intrigue, gratuitous nudity, and lots of creepy atmosphere. That island is the most foreboding piece of land I've ever seen.
Check it out.

Back in 1981, I was fourteen and already in love with horror movies, though I had to resort to the get-an-adult-stranger-to-buy-you-a-ticket technique when it was rated "R." As I had loved "The Fog" and had seen it twice in the theater (once by myself) I simply had to go see a movie called "Beyond The Fog" when an ad appeared in Newsday (the Long Island newspaper). Remember, this is long before the internet. (This ad that I saw back then is included in a collage of posters and ads found on the inside of the jacket.) What I didn't know back then was this was a nearly ten year old British film that had been retitled and re-marketed to trick people like me in to thinking it WAS a sequel to "The Fog." When you see this film, imagine what it must have been like for a fourteen year old with no prior clue to see this movie unfurl on the screen. It begins with some salty dogs approaching an island in thick fog, hinting at having to do some morbid task. They disembark and walk in to the fog, heading to a decrepit Lighthouse, discovering a naked dead body on the way (still seems like it could a sequel, though the look of the film stock would be a dead give away to me now). Inside the Lighthouse they find a man impaled with a ceremonial sword and a woman whose severed head falls down a flight of stairs. Then, suddenly, a crazed topless girl springs out of a closet as the door is opened and stabs the older salty dog to death. It was at this point that I started to think "What the hell? THIS is a sequel to The Fog?" This is just in the first few minutes.

Now, all these years later and with a lifetime of knowledge gained about past horror films, I can judge it more objectively and appreciate the film for what it is.

TOWER OF EVIL

(UK - 1972)

Aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Theatrical soundtrack: Mono

A group of archaeologists travel to a lighthouse-island off the coast of England where evidence of ancient treasure has recently been unearthed, alongside the corpses of several American teenagers, all of whom were slaughtered by person or persons unknown. Once on the island, the team becomes isolated from the mainland and is stalked by an elusive 'presence' which picks them off one by one.

A trash classic from the heyday of British exploitation, TOWER OF EVIL was helmed by Jim O'Connolly, a talented journeyman whose career had peaked several years earlier with THE VALLEY OF GWANGI (1968), one of Ray Harryhausen's best films. Thrown together on a microscopic budget, and fashioned by O'Connolly from an early script by novelist George Baxt (responsible for such memorable British thrillers as CIRCUS OF HORRORS, THE CITY OF THE DEAD and NIGHT OF THE EAGLE), 'Tower' hedges its commercial bets by emphasizing a couple of high profile cameos (Dennis Price and Anthony Valentine), and foregrounding liberal doses of self-conscious nudity and gore.

The opening scenes - in which crusty sea dogs Jack Watson and George Coulouris visit the titular lighthouse and stumble on a series of mutilated corpses - sets the tone for much of what follows, and while the main cast are pretty colorless, their mutual antagonism (borne from a convoluted history of infidelity, too complicated to explain here) demonstrates a rudimentary attempt at characterisation.
