And here the British horror portmanteau came to die. Sexploitation kingpin Stanley A Long tied up three supporting features penned by Michael ‘Eskimo Nell’ Armstrong with a perfunctory linking device involving a bunch of Americans renting some ‘British’ horror videos and, er, watching them. First, a Punch and Judy man takes revenge on his puppetphobic family (including stepson Jonathan ‘Bread’ Morris) by enacting the seaside entertainment for real. Then a young woman is haunted by housebound hallucinations with a rather effective supernatural twist. Finally, Dollar’s David Van Day has his petty cash thieving exploits undone by some possessed garden gnomes. An ignominious end.
