Two genre-defining British horrors from the 70s, both fully restored and on Blu-ray™ for the first time, FRIGHT and AND SOON THE DARKNESS have just been released courtesy of Studiocanal’s Vintage Classics Collection.
Directed by Peter Collinson (The Italian Job, Straight on Till Morning), FRIGHT is an original British slasher film from 1971 starring Honor Blackman (Goldfinger), Susan George (Straw Dogs), Ian Bannen (The Flight of the Phoenix), George Cole and Dennis Waterman (Minder). Pre-dating the release of Halloween by seven years, FRIGHT was the groundbreaker for the ‘terrorised babysitter’ variation of the ‘home invasion’ horror genre.
Directed by Robert Fuest (The Abominable Dr. Phebes, Wuthering Heights) AND SOON THE DARKNESS is a unique and suspenseful thriller starring Pamela Franklin (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie) and Michelle Dotrice (The Blood on Satan’s Claw). AND SOON THE DARKNESS cleverly confounds expectations and extracts the maximum amount of suspense, sustaining jeopardy and a sense of claustrophobia despite the story all taking place in wide open spaces in complete daylight.
