Very much want this film to be as great a success as the first Woman in Black film. Therefore I hope you have ironed out problems with the script which are evident from the novelisation. The Spitfires flying in 1940 were the Mark IIs and did not have "two front-mounted machine guns". In fact they had six machine guns hidden in the wing. The big prominent jobs the writer is thinking is the the Mark Vb with two prominent canons (and four concealed machine guns), which first flew in combat in Spring 1941. Despite Dr. Who's Captain Jack. there are no Captains in the RAF. There are "Group Captains", but that is a very senior rank equivalent of Colonel in the army and not likely to be a flying squaddie. There were no Lancaster or Halifaxes flying operationally in the RAF in 1940. The Halifax flew its first operation also in Spring 1941. The Lancaster however did not fly ops until 1942. Okay, despite this nit-picking, I wish the film great success.

I have no idea what religious convictions director Terence Fisher may have embraced, but he leavens his narrative with a healthy and lively dose of Anglo-Catholic spirit. Rational faith, undeterred either by implacable skepticism or insuperable superstition, seems to hold a fascination for Fisher. Nowhere is it more evident (or pleasing) than it is in CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF. Sexuality has a bi-lateral appeal. The wrong kind--salacious and wanton--brings on poor Leon's lycanthropic spells. The right kind--the sacred eroticism of committed love--acts to save Leon from his murderous impulses. COTW is the very best of Hammer's non-canonical gothic horror films. It bothers me not a whit that some critics declare the movie to be "slow" in the middle. Character and writing makes the actors more intimate and grant the audience more time to warm up to the story. They don't make 'em like this anymore...

I saw the Woman in Black at the cinema and loved it and then bough the bluray disc as soon as it came out. I was confused by the bluray version as some scenes seemed to be missing or shortened. I then found that cuts had been made to make sure it could pass as a 12A! Those cuts actually lost some of the scariness for me and I actually felt I'd been cheated when buying it. Why dumb it down and dilute the whole point of the film? Surely they could have had both versions to choose? I believe the US version is in its entirety but is it possible to buy the US version to play in UK bluray players?

does anyone know whether this is going to be a Cinema or straight to DVD/Bluray Release. I hope it comes out in the Cinema. BTW I gotta say a big thank you to Hammer Media Company, you have restored my faith back into Horror Movies. All that so called 'Blood Porn' turned me away from the Genre as it was unnecessary. You guys and girls should be proud of bringing UK Horror on the Map.

I remember this as one of the old favourites , maybe you will be able to help my horror movie search? When I was a young boy, I use to sneak downstairs to watch horror movies whilst my parents slept, tow of the horror movies I watched was and want to see again I cannot seem to find, so if I explained the scenes I remember someone might be able to help me find and purchase the movies? 1, Is the original or I think original version of The Turn Of The Screw, in the ending scenes I remember, the boy, the young master is shouting at the ghost the previous master to go away the ghost dressed in the usual Edwardian/Victorian clothes has great jagged vampire teeth and is standing in what I think is the garden house, telling the ghost master as I said has the most horrific vampire monsterish teeth with his features looking very malevolent and frightening, the boy (the young master) then dies and the governess finds the boy holding him in her arms, he is dead. That is the scene I remember from one of the versions of The Turn Of The Screw, I think it is a black and white version but I am not sure? Can you remember this version and when it was produced so I can get a copy? Thank you . 2, In the scene I remember from the name of the movie I cannot remember, there are a group of witches, during the parts of the horror movie I remember, the witches are having a supernatural witch fight, one witch is at the bottom of an oak banister stair rails she floats down the stairs to fight her opponents witch, in the second scene I remember, the witch in in a bed room, half dressed, the sounds of a clubbed foot draws closer, the witch is kneeling on the floor with her night dress down over her shoulders top her waste, the door sings open and turns to look up at the club foot devil who is hidden from the camera then she the witch says ‘’ I am ready master’’ That is all I remember, can you remember this horror movies it is colour and what it is called and where to get
