I had this on big-box VHS many moons ago, and I still have great affection for it. The UK filmmaker Peter Collinson is a true maestro of hard-boiled sleaze, and he really delivers on the film’s grungy premise. (not one for the faint of heart!) Nice ensemble acting from an impeccable who’s-who of cult cinema. Never really understood why this film remains such an obscurity, as it is truly gonzoid material!

Possibly my favorite Andy Milligan production, and might well be the best, and most consistent of his theatrical, full-bodied Gothic Horrors, that along with ‘The Body Beneath’, is a film that even non-Milligan freaks can enjoy without too much liquid encouragement! Denis DeMarne equips himself well as the dastardly Hyde, ably disguising his malevolence as the urbane, but entirely obsessive Dr. Jeykll. Milligan regular Berwick Kaler is on fine form here.
