Thanks for these. A wonderfully atmospheric piece of cinema. I've foolishly started a blog to try and review every Hammer film I can, so I'm looking forward to writing on this little gem.

Good luck in the Rondos!

The scariest shot I can remember from "Scream Of Fear" (I saw it in a theatre in the early 60s), was the scene underwater in an ancient weed-filled swimming pool as we approach and gradually make out the dead body staring back at the camera (and protagonist).

That film did have a visual/scenic flare, for sure.

This is my first stop at this very cool site. I have never seen many of these genre still pics before, and I've been a genre fan all my life. I am sincerely impressed!!
