Alternate Versions

The original UK cinema and video versions were cut by the BBFC to heavily edit the broom impalement, a shot of a spade in a man's head, the cannibal biting off a rat's head, and his pursuit and attempted rape of Sharon Gurney. The full uncut version was finally passed by the BBFC for the DVD release in March 2006. See more »

Slow, watchable, but over-rated by many reviewers
9 September 2008 | by jeremy-benjaminSee all my reviews

This horror film is typical of those produced in large numbers in early 1970's Britain. It has a tiny cast and budget, and stretches its limited resources far too thinly. It is very slowly paced, and could easily be compressed into 30 minutes. There is almost no plot development, and what there is is 100% telegraphed right from the start. It ticks such boxes as having a couple of star actors (Donald Pleasance would never turn a film down, however bad!), an irrelevantly American character to help get the film distributed Stateside, and a simple tagline and title designed to get the punters in. The plot is essentially the legend of Sawney Bean transplanted to the London Underground in 1973! This makes no sense at all! For all that it passes the time, and is perfectly watchable if your expectations are not too high.
