The Lair of the White Worm

The Lair of the White Worm ★★★★

Lair of the White Worm has so many disparate pieces that just should not work together, but somehow do when jammed together by Ken Russell. Classically British gothic atmosphere butts heads with sacrilegious effect-heavy SOV transmissions, which are smashed up against very proto-Twin Peaks dream sequences, which lead to Fulci-esque gore and reverse eye impalements.

A really good reminder that I need to finally finish working my way through the Russell filmography.
