The Lair of the White Worm

The Lair of the White Worm ★★★★

this. movie. has. EVERYTHING! phallic symbols, charmingly bad cgi, ken russel dreaminess, lady sylvia marsh's strap, hugh grant saying he likes peter capaldi's hole... it's got it all. absolutely showstopping.

yes, i did watch this twice in 3 days. to be FAIR, i was showing it to a FRIEND, but... i'd be lying if i said the snake charming scene didn't push me to really sell this movie to my friend as our watch of the night.

and DICK BUSH!!! i mean the guy. like the cinematographer named dick bush. when i first saw his name in the credits, i SCREAMED, because that's the dracula a.d. 1972 guy!!! and it's SO funny watching this movie as an avid dracula a.d. 1972 fan, because you can just TELL he worked on both. those lingering zooms..... my god. he's a genius.

so ummmmm yeah! i liked it! two thumbs up!
