Dr. Blood's Coffin

   Recently released on MGM via their MOD program, in a nice looking 16 : 9 transfer, this somewhat talky/slow moving Hammer wanna-be has always been a guilty pleasure of mine.  Some fairly graphic surgery footage , the Cornwall setting of England (also used in Hammer's The Reptile and Plague of the Zombies) and the always reliable Kieron Moore (Crack in the World & Day of the Triffids) help. Plus, no one fills out a nurses uniform quite like Hazel Court. Director Sidney J. Furie had a pretty amazing career directing everything from The Ipcress File to Little Fauss & Big Halsy (We really need a DVD/BD release on this one) and Iron Eagle !
