Synopsis

The Iron Rose
Cult director Jean Rollin's most unusual and haunting film was this poetic tale of two young lovers (Francoise Pascal, Hugues Quester) lost in a cemetery overnight. With only one set, two characters, and a hallucinatory style which could provoke unintentional laughter in some audiences, the film was a commercial disaster. Quester was so embarrassed that he had his name taken off the credits, where he is now listed as "Pierre Dupont." Still, as time passed and audiences grew more sophisticated, the film's uniquely peculiar atmospherics have gained it a cult following, and some even consider it on a par with the original Carnival of Souls as among the simplest and creepiest of macabre films. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

The Horrors of Burke and Hare
Roger Corman's New World Pictures took a stab at the tale of the nefarious real-life graverobbers -- and filled it with the studio's usual quota of nudity, softcore sex and tacky humor. The result is pretty much as one would expect -- nothing to rival the excellent Flesh and the Fiends, or even Tod Slaughter's campy The Greed of William Hart. Harry Andrews plays the unscrupulous Dr. Knox, who enlists the aid of grave-plundering dirtbags Derren Nesbitt and Glynn Edwards in obtaining fresh cadavers for the medical academy. When the demand increases and local cemeteries begin to run dry, the industrious pair turn to the living to keep the doctor supplied. This time out, Burke and Hare are particularly randy fellows, who spend more time carousing in Edinburgh whorehouses than stalking their prey. Despite the macabre subject matter, the producers opted for sexploitation over gruesome horror, but the end result is decidedly dull. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

Daughter of Darkness
Daughter of Darkness was based on They Walk Alone, a play by Max Catto. The heroine of the play can be described as a "homicidal nymphomaniac," which understandably posed censorship problems when the Catto original was adapted to the screen. In her second film, Irish stage star Siobhan McKenna plays Emma Baudine, a "black widow" who lures men with her sexual charms and then murders them. Because she is the trusted assistant of village priest Father Corcoran (Liam Redmond), no one suspects what Emma is up to -- no one, that is, except the inquisitive Bess Stanforth (Anne Crawford), who emerges as the heroine of the piece. Also appearing in her first movie role is Honor Blackman, long before her international TV fame vis-a-vis The Avengers. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
