I totally dig this movie! It's so weird that you can't help loving it. It opened in January 1989 (here in Philadelphia) at the same theater that ran "Rocky Horror Picture Show" every Fri and Sat. I missed it at the time but caught it on video in May 1989. Ken Russell is definitely a unique director. Anyone see "Altered States" (1980) or "Crimes Of Passion" (1984)? Check them out.

I've seen "Altered States," but except for clips on youtube.com, I haven't seen "Crimes of Passion." Which one did you see mg247? The edited one or the unedited one? The unedited one is suppose to be better, as it creates more empathy for the heroine.

I have seen some of his other weird and non-weird films. Oh, wait . . . He doesn't make non-weird films, Some of his more weird films I've seen include "Lair of the White Worm," "Salome's Last Dance," "Aria," "Gothic," "Altered States," "Valentino," "Tommy," "The Devils," and "The Music Lovers." Some of his less werd films I've see include "Billion Dollar Brain," "Women in Love," "The Boy Friend," "The Rainbow," "Women and Men: Stories of Seduction," and "Prisoner of Honor."

 Sadistic sexual attacks on religious women are one thing but bad female grooming habits is where I draw the line in the sand.

Oh come on now. You don't mean it.     Wink

Did anyone notice, besides myself, that the women in the film have more hair on their legs and under their arms, than the men in the film--Hugh Grant (Lord James D'Ampton), Lloyd Peters (Jesus Christ), and Chris Pitt (Kevin)--have on their chests? What's up with that.

Maybe not Ken Russell's best film (although, then again, it may be) but certainly his most fun.

I just recently got this fun and twisted flick on DVD and am looking forward to re-watching it this weekend.  Easily my favorite Ken Russel movie to date next to Crimes of Passion & Whore.

Togro, after you see it this weekend, how about posting your thoughts on it? I, for one, would like to hear them.

That sword used in the film is called a Zweihander or two-handed sword, because it requires two hands to use it. If you want to practice with one, before you have to use it, so you don't look like a doofus like Hugh Grant in the film, there are websites, where you can purchase replicas of the sword. The actual sword itself was as long as six feet, but the longest replica I've seen for sale on the internet, is somewhat less than that.

catherine oxenberg in a bra and panties, tied up and helpless and struggling is a major turn on for me,as well as being controlled by a naked Amanda Donahoe. Fantastic!

Seriously love this movie.  It was the first real horror I'd ever seen and been able to make it through without constantly looking over my should in broad daylight.

Amanda Donohoe is brilliantly cast and I feel sorry for the kid in the hot tub!

Yeah, but didn't the kid have a great time till she bit him and then drowned him in the tub.

A couple of things about that scene. The actor who played the kid was named Chris Pitt, and, he was apparently only 17, when he did that scene with Amanda Donohoe? Does anybody know what happened to him, as he dropped out of acting about a couple of years after he appeared in the film, and I haven't been able to trace him. Since I wanted to ask him how it was to appear in that scene, as some actresses don't like to work with an actor that young, but Donohoe apparently didn't have any problems appearing in the scene with him.

And that tub, while it is often refered to as a hot tub, I think it is more likely what is known as a sunken bathtub, as the tub is sunk beneath the level of the floor, which is probably why you don't see them that much anymore. And if you want to see another great scene taking place in a sunken bathtub, then watch Claudette Colbert bathing in asses milk in one in "The Sign of the Cross" from 1932.

Saw this movie on the "on-demand" one night.  Nice full version with no editing out of the nasty parts.   Right as the girl touches the LSD/toxin on the crucifix and the movie dumps into one of the most bizarre/blasphemous sequences I have ever seen, my wife comes downstairs.  She had no clue what I was watching and just started yelling "turn it off!" I eventually got it off, but started it up after she left.  Some people just can't appreciate bad cinema.  I agree the song was the best part of the movie though and also seeing Hugh Grant in a movie which actually has a body-count to it rather than a romantic comedy was novel.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
