Slig001’s review published on Letterboxd:
Ken Russell meet Bram Stoker for a hilarious horror comedy romp about a great big worm. This film is weird in so many ways that you'd have to be a real stick in the mud not to enjoy it on some level. The dream sequences are seductive and surreal in a real trashy sort of way that only Ken Russell can manage. I absolutely love Amanda Donohoe's performance as the sexy snake woman; she completely owns every scene she's in. The rural setting is just great, as is the folky pop song "The D'ampton Worm". It has to be said that there's not a lot of tension in narrative but there's always enough general weirdness to keep things interesting. I absolutely love the special effects for the worm in the climatic sacrifice sequence towards the end. It's a masterpiece of kooky weirdness. I'd love to read the original Bram Stoker novel, just to see if there is actually similarities between this film and the original material.
