I love the 70s Hammer stuff because they started letting modernity creep in to tried and true formula. The editing here is really interesting and looks positively Godardian next to anything in their Mummy films, for instance. Collinson had a way with composition and silence that was truly modern. He was really trying something new and the result is something unique in the Hammer catalogue.
Fairy tale prince turns into a real psycho. I feel bad for forcing my friends to watch this "love story from Hammer" with me. The only good thing about this is Katya Wyeth and the freak's green velvet pants.
