Editorial Reviews

Sexy, teenaged, immature Girly and her camera-wielding brother Sonny bring home unsuspecting men to Mumsy and Nanny, where they play games, and if they don't follow the rules, they're sent to the angels. One day they bring home a New Friend who has a few ideas for games of his own, though, and he begins to turn the foursome against each other.

Great to see this out on dvd. Further evidence that England is home to the strangest people in the world. Behind a facade that's alternately prim-and-proper and cloyingly cute, this family is deeply disturbed. Fortunately, the family that slays together, stays together. Until.... There were axes swinging in the sixties, too.

This was a delightful surprise. The entire cast is superb, and the ambience is great as it was entirely filmed in an atmospheric English mansion and the surrounding gardens and forests. If you enjoy culture from the sixties, then this will please you greatly. And if you also enjoy British dark comedy, you're in for a fantastic treat. This actually is more of a surreal comedy than a real horror movie, so please don't expect any creepy or heavy vibe.

Vanessa Howard: I had never heard of her, and there is virtually no information about her online. She is stunning in this movie. I was trying to think who she reminded me of, and then it occurred to me: Sharon Tate, with a British accent. She obviously is insanely naughty and sinister in this flick. She is very attractive, and I was pleased to calculate that Ms. Howard was 22 when she played this role even though she is acting like she is younger. The actor who plays her brother is also brilliant. The mother admires her two little sweet "kids," even as they lure, torture, and kill dull-witted dupes. It is all presented in a rather far-fetched comedic fashion, and there is little gore for the faint of heart.

I rented this off of Netflix, but I certainly will buy it for my "Sixties Collection." It is worthy of certified "classic" status, although it apparently has not yet achieved even "cult" status. I think that will change now that it is on DVD. I give this a "Must-See" certification for all lovers of foreign, independent, obscure, off-beat cinema. I actually watched it twice, which I can rarely tolerate, and I enjoyed it the second time through even more than the first as there were so many little subtle flourishes which really added to the appeal.

A nomad meets a strange fatherless family that make the Addams Family look like a Disney film. There is plenty of dastardly things going on in this British film, as the strange clan likes to pretend they are a normal family with the people they kidnap and when something goes wrong, the violence comes out to play. Directed by master Freddie Francis (who directed plenty of Hammer films throughout his career), this film has an edge to it that you don't normally find in films. It's a fun film in an extremely weird sort of way and Scorpion Releasing found a great print for their DVD release. Recommended.

This is possibly the most bizarre thing I have ever seen and I love it. It's like if you crossed Shirley Jackson (specifically The Sundial) with Les Enfants Terribles, and added a dash of Baby Jane. I love gothic horror in general, and I have a particular weakness for the dysfunction of insular families and the inward-twisting little worlds they create. That could be any Faulkner, The House of Yes, Fall of the House of Usher, The Turn of the Screw, Sharp Objects, VC Andrews (real only, not ghostwriter books), The Red House, The Thirteenth Tale, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers even, though that's a slight variation on the theme. From high to low brow, there is a common aesthetic, common thematic elements to all these things, and I've always loved that kind of story. There is something fascinatingly fairy tale like about the decay, eccentricity, and odd, often twisted or stunted sexuality of a family cut off from the rest of the world, and bonus points if they live in a huge old creepy house or castle. This movie has all that and more. It is bananaramapants, combining gothic horror with the campy cultural ethos of 1969 UK and those turn out to be two great tastes that taste great together. The performances are so committed, the actors, especially the divine Vanessa Howard add a level of realism that anchors the film, and keeps it from being just silly.
It's not streaming free anywhere, and though one of Austin's indie video stores has it in stock, I wouldn't count on finding it anywhere if you don't live in a big city with active weird subcultures. So buy it! It's pretty cheap really, cheaper than a non-matinee movie ticket most places, and I've watched it three times so far. It is fascinatingly, beautifully bizarre.

Girly is an immature but thoroughly sexed up teenager, she with her brother ‘Sonny’, seem to be trapped in a perpetual childhood. They just want to play games, sing nursery rhymes and lure unsuspecting ‘friends’ back home for frolics, tea cakes and to be sent to meet God early via the ‘angels – bless em the little darlings.

Looking over this idyll of a childhood paradise is the delightful ‘Mumsy’ who is aided in her maternal duties by a devoted ‘Nanny’. The new ‘friends’ are each given a specific room and are told ‘the rules’, which if transgressed have to be dealt with most severely. Some learn the hard way. Then one day they bring back ‘new friend’ and he is different to the others, he not only likes games but has a few he wants to play himself – mwaaahh!

Now this is just oodles of fun, Mumsy is about as mad as a box of frogs with the addition of a beehive and an alcoholic bag lady thrown in for good measure. The children are beautifully deranged – operating by a code that only they seem to know and Nanny is something else altogether. This is just mad, bonkers and wonderfully entertaining. It seems dated in places but that adds to the charm; if indeed ‘charm’ is the right word. If you like a bit of dark comedy with a healthy dose of silliness then I think you may have struck gold with this filmatic gem.
