The Lair of the White Worm

The Lair of the White Worm ★★★★½

80s horror adventures with Jason

I'm pretty sure I rented this as a kid on VHS and it severely confused me, so I didn't like it. Happy to say things have changed. That mixture of folksy pagan horror, snake people and trippy WTFness is intoxicating. I feel like the trippy scenes were a direct response to the video nasty days in England. "You don't want sexualized violence? You can't get much more sexualized than this gore covered scene of nuns being raped!" rofl, so awesome! Why did Hugh Grant do so many sappy horrible flicks when he should have been in more films like this? I love Ken Russell.

My God's kitten liked these reviews
