Format: Amazon Watch Party
Director: Freddie Francis
I had no expectations whatsoever of this film, but figured it might be okay as it co-starred Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Anyway, The Creeping Flesh (1973) is not a Hammer Horror film, but feels like a sister film to The Horror Express.
Why, Signal Watch? you may ask. Well, dear reader, this movie is about bringing the remains of an unknown being from New Guinea into someone's house and then shit gets weird/ scary. That movie is about a scientist moving the remains of an unknown being from China to Europe via the Trans-Siberian Express and, in transit, shit gets weird/ scary.
This one has a very different take - possibly including a form of evil that's a literal virus with very pronounced flagella. Also, a crazy daughter. Add in Lee as an amoral scientist/ custodian of an insane asylum, and a frazzled Cushing as a gentleman scientist, and... there's nothing not to like.
