Ice and Darkness

'The Damned' may be the most cerebral film Hammer ever made. It's certainly the best film ever made in Weymouth. It has it all: cold war, a government conspiracy, an underground facility, radioactivity, creepy kids, eerie sculptures, leather boys, pointy bras and Oliver Reed.

Once seen, never forgotten. Seriously.

  1. Indeed! It was/is an unforgettable film.
    Its real characterizations and strong acting give it a disturbing plausibility...especially because EACH and EVERY character who is in conflict has a reasonable belief that he or she is doing the RIGHT thing.
    Thank you for highlighting this little-known gem!
