ReviewKen Russell's "The Lair of the White Worm" is one of my guilty pleasures. I have always enjoyed Russell's gonzo approach to filmmaking. "Lair" is far from his best work. Based on a minor story by Bram Stoker, "Lair" pits Lord D'Ampton and friends against Lady Sylvia Marsh (Amanda Donohoe), a serpentine vampire.
The DiscKinky fun film. Good picture and sound. No extras. Perfect vanilla DVD price.
There are some big delineation problems during the darker scenes. Otherwise the picture is fine. Excellent flesh tones. Lots of flesh. Have fun watching Amanda Donohoe bite a boy scout.
The sound is a bit flat on the high end. No loss of dialogue. I had to put on the closed caption to get through some of the heavy accents.
No Easter Eggs found during review.
No extras. Priced to reflect the lack of extras.
Fans of Ken Russell will love this one. A kinky romp through the world of snaky vampires.
