Editorial Reviews

DISC 1 - DIE SCREAMING MARIANNE (1971): Marianne (Susan George, Straw Dogs), following the sudden death of her mother, stands to inherit the family fortune, along with several documents that could incriminate her corrupt judge of a father. Now, her sister and her father both want their hands on Marianne's inheritance and they'll stop at nothing, even murder, to get it! SPECIAL FEATURES: TBD

DISC 2 - HOUSE OF WHIPCORD (1974): A beautiful model is taken prisoner and held in a bizarre private prison where ''immoral women'' are subjected to brutality and degradation. Stars Penny Irving, Patrick Barr and Barbara Markham. SPECIAL FEATURES: TBD

DISC 3 - SCHIZO (1976): A little girl watches helplessly as she is the sole witness to her mother's murder. Years later, that little girl has grown into the beautiful skating star Samantha Gray (Lynne Frederick). But after her wedding announcement is published in the local newspaper, a man who becomes more and more obsessed with her begins turning up everywhere she goes. Samantha's fear mounts as one by one her friends are murdered, and she becomes convinced that the stalker is no stranger! this suspenseful horror thriller was one of the early slasher films, rich with gore, an intriguing story, scenes reminiscent of Psycho and a twist ending considered so frightening that squeamish theater patrons were promised free smelling salts if they fainted! SPECIAL FEATURES: TBD

DISC 4 - THE COMEBACK (1978): Seeking a little peace and quiet to write some new songs, a washed-up American singer (''The Love Boat'' theme crooner Jack Jones) moves into a secluded English house. But his mind isn't on a new romance when he's contacted by his ex-wife's ghost, whose clues about her murder lead Jones to a confrontation with the killer. Offbeat chiller also stars Pamela Stephenson (Superman III, ''Saturday Night Live''), David Doyle (''Charlie s Angels''), Holly Palance (The Omen).

By Carlos E. Velasquez on January 29, 2013
Format: Blu-ray
A lot of horror and thriller films, with a dose of the erotic, were released in Europe during the seventies, and many of them have survived the test of time. Pete Walker (1939- ) was one of the English directors that represented the trend, and it has been said elsewhere that he "tested the limits of film censorship in the UK with a string of gruesome and erotic thrillers." For our pleasure, then, we have now available "The Pete Walker Collection," a remarkable and historically important set of films that represent a testament of those glorious years, with the best of quality possible.

The collection is comprised of four titles in four Blu-ray discs, each remastered in HD from original negatives. The first one, "House of Whipcord," is "dedicated to those who are disturbed by today's lax moral codes (we are taking 1974) and who eagerly await the return of corporal and capital punishment." Everything begins when a good-looking fellow goes to the city, makes ladies fall for him, and then he takes them to a mansion in the middle of nowhere, where ladies are punished for their sins. The first lady that we meet is kidnapped because her sin was being a model and "exposing herself." They go to trial in front of a judge, and he condemns them accordingly. After three strikes, they are hanged. It takes some time for the prisoners to revolt. And, of course, being a women-in-prison film, there is some nudity. The next one is "Die Screaming, Marianne," with Susan George playing the main character. Contrary to "House of Whipcord," this film's story is a bit more complex, and it has to do with a lady (George), who is key to an inheritance, and everybody wants a piece of her -- hence the title. Here, the director generated a great thriller, with plenty twists and turns.

For anyone who hasn't seen any Pete Walker films this is a good sampling. That being said, the collection varies in quality both in content and transfers. The best of the bunch I would say is The Comeback, and again, in quality and nice transfer. It reminds me of giallo-type movies and is actually quite well-made.....and also why I gave this four stars. House of Whipcord is entertaining, but the other two offerings are marginal at best. I've always liked Susan George, but I feel Die Screaming Marianne was kind of a waste. I would recommend this at a reasonable price for those who are interested or curious.
