Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Great cast, shame about the script. Not the product you would normally associate with Hammer, but this spin-off from the popular TV series was the kind of project the House of Horror was forced to resort to as the fright business took a down turn in the mid-1970s. The material is thinner than a bedsit wall as housemates Richard O'Sullivan, Sally Thomsett and the excellent Paula Wilcox team up with their inimitable landlords Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce after they come up against unscrupulous property developers. Watch out for welcome turns from Spike Milligan and Arthur Lowe.
