I saw a post on a group I am a member of where they were commenting the Caroline Munro saying that she was a lovely person but couldn't act for toffee. Thought this was unfair as I remember when I was a kid practically being hypnotised by her talents when they were on screen.

I can confirm, that having met her in person a few years ago, Caroline Munro, is indeed a very lovely person. As for her acting, she has done a more than adequate job in most of her film appearances..the majority of Hammer girls were hired for their physical attributes, not their thespian skills in the first place.

I had no idea she was a thespain. Still I don't judge people based on their sexual orientation.

She did Hammer films, Sinbad, MANIAC with Joe Spinell (who was with her in STARCRASH), DRACULA AD 1972 with Chris Lee...!
She's an icon.

my favourite Caroline Munroe film is easily THE LAST HORROR FILM. Joe Spinell was in that too.

a few of my other faves are the house that dripped blood, tales that witness madness,  monster club and tales from beyond. i should make a list of all of them somewhere, lol!
not seen that one yet. I even bought it for my brother for xmas last year, but didn't get a chance to watch it myself first... will have to borrow it off him  Smile

4. The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires
Here comes Chinese Vampire. Hopping down the Vampire Trail. Hippity Hoppity. See him on his way. One of the few films to feature the Chinese Hopping Vampire. My one disappointment is that Chris Lee is not in it.


I like this one a lot too. And I agree about Lee not being in it. But by this time he was tired of playing a vampire. He did it on screen more than any other actor.

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
