Pleasure Becomes Terror

'Tower Of Evil' has a lot of components for what is, essentially, a slasher film. It has about a dozen gruesome murders, a lighthouse, some extremely complicated personal relationships, psychedelic psychotherapy, insanity, necrophilia, Phoenecian treasure and Robin Askwith pretending to be American, all crammed into an eventful 89 minutes. It's a lot of fun.

Like 'Craze' (see yesterday), 'Tower...' also features an ancient idol with a penchant for blood sacrifice, this time Ba'al, the Hebrew God of Fertility, i.e. the red eyed, beaky gold thing in the screengrabs below. Religion, eh?

Here's a clip. Be warned, it contains a massive amount of screaming.
