Questionable taste? Surely that's the point of a horror film. This is one of their best camp classics and Ms Pitt eats up the screen with relish. There's simply not enough virgins in horror films these days. Bring 'em back I say.

The best of hammer and a classic twist on the old story. Martine Beswick and Ralph Bates are teriffic in this.

Here's another corker from a time when horror was actually scary and not just sick-inducing.

This is one of the best Hammer films and a real memory of mine from my childhood. I remember seeing it on BBC2 as part of their horror double-bills. A real gem! Make more like this please.

Excellent dinosaurs and Raquel Welch in a furry bikini. What more could you ask for?

I saw this on Sky a few years ago. It seemed to combine sci-fi and western elements. That's the kindest thing I can say about it. It's certainly a curio that has to be seen to be believed.

Whatever happened to Judy Geeson? She was a permanent TV/film fixture of my 70s childhood.

Surely there is no reason Christopher Lee couldn't reprise the role of the Duc? I'm sure I've read an article recently where Christopher Lee stated he would play the role again...

This is probably one of the best horror films ever made. It retains the ability to frighten all these years later. I think it is the poise and gravitas the Christopher Lee brings to the character of de Richleau, but consider too the other actors around him. Charles Gray, the divine Nike Arrighi, Leon Greene (given that extra quality by Patrick Allen) and so many more. This is reportedly Christopher Lee's favourite Hammer film and there is no argument from me. There were many more Wheatley books with de Richleau and Rex; it is a pity more films weren't made. Maybe we could see them coming through now - it would make a revelatory TV series... I'm not a big fan of remakes but, who could play the Duc?

The Woman in Black is a very safe story to film . The stage show has run successfully for years in London, it was filmed for TV in the eighties and even then managed to be quite chilling . Well done to the re-formed Hammer and best of luck with the franchise. I have always said Peter Cushing was one person I would really have liked to meet - a really great guy.
