Yep, this is a different type of film.   Well worth seeing for the change of pace and to see a movie that plays by different rules.  Not great but not bad.  Watch it, enjoy it, then don't tell your friends or they will think  you are one of those type of people that like art films.  (note: this is not a art film. it just seems that way)

Man, oh man, I love that song.  I wish I could buy it.  I have only seen this movie on the Sci-fi channel, where the mentioned scenes with raped and impaled nuns are cut out.  I also don't remember the dream sequences.  However, they did leave in the Strap-On-Of-Death.

Snakes and Ladders is actually the original name of Chutes and Ladders.  In its original British incarnation.  A friend of mine from England actually has a Snakes and Ladders game from when he was a child (FAR pre-dating this film).  Just a nitpicky little commment here.  

I found this film wonderfully fun.

Oh boy--Ken Russell finally makes it to!  I, alas, have not seen this film, but I really look forward to the Good Sgt's reviews of Lisztomania and The Devils!

I'd have to give this one 4 slimes.  Hugh Grant swinging the broadsword and falling into the drumset is pure brilliance. Can't forget the White Worm song, either.  I want the soundtrack.

I would give this half a slime, the movie is really really boring, I hated every minute of it.

Hmmm. "Never get a blowjob from a woman ith two inch fangs." If only Hugh had listened to that before he went to Devine Brown!

KidJustice, if you will go to, you
will find the lyrics to the song, which is called "The D'Ampton Worm." There it says that the song is performed by Emilio Perez Machado and Stephen Powys, but, I have also heard that the song is performed by The Pogues. I do not know where you can find a recording of the song, but I have heard it is used as the background music for the film trailer. If so, that can be found at and You need RealPlayer to see the first and DivX to see the second.                       Now, now a criticism, but an observation about our webmaster, who ". . .really didn"t need to watch . . . nuns being raped by Roman soldiers," but, he doesn't say anything about not needing to watch a young boy scout, being seduced,
then emasculated, before being murdered by being drowned in the bath by the villainess. Hmmm! As a boy scout for an year in the 5th grade, this scene and the scene of the death of the four boy scouts in "Cemetery Man," makes me think that he has something against the boy scouts. Anyway, a great site. Who would have thought a marine had a sense of humor, and an eye for picking out the best scene in a film, including the two scenes mentioned, 77% of the time.

There is some debate as to whether Kevin, the goofy boy scout, in this film actually received a blowjob from Lady Sylvia, before she emasculated him. At, the webmaster says no to both the blowjob and the emasculation. (Check the bulletin board at the site listed.) But, everyting is open to debate in this film.

Man, what a flick!  You get to see Amanda Donohu run around near naked..but then she whips out the scariest thing I've ever seen a woman wield in a horror film!  

Best enjoyed while drunk.  May cause brain damage.  But still great fun.

I usually don't like Ken Russell's films but this one was quite good, an adaption of Bram Stoker's last novel of the same name.

 I thought this was a very good movie. I don't know what it is about Hugh Grant, but even when he's being dead serious you just want to bust out laughing at him. I'm not saying he's a bad actor, which he isn't, he just got a natural funny look to him. Enough about Hugh. Amanda Donahoe looked damn fine, too.

    Finally, a Ken Russel film-here!!  I can't see why Russel has garnered such a wide-range of fans, his films are botched pretentious pieces of junk...

Great googly moogly!! What a huge, horrible, waste of time! For the love of Benji, all I ever wanted was a bit of(BUNCH OF) vampire related violence and gore! Too much to ask for Kenny? Hmmmmm? This movie brought me closer than I've ever been to doing harm to myself or my fellow man! Horrid...fetid any other id's you can think of!! Oh yes. By the way, my scouting experience was almost equally painful.

True story--my sister is a Hugh Grant freak.  She called me up all excited because she had found this movie at the video store.  I had seen it previously, thanks to a boyfriend who gravitated towards anything gross and bloody, and I warned her that this was no "Four Weddings And A Funeral."  That did not deter my sister.

The next day, I asked her how she liked it.  She sputtered, "I can't believe Hugh Grant would make a PORNO movie!"

She also thinks that the hooker framed him.
