Laugh??? I Nearly Paid my Licence Fee

FUNNY HOW anything with the word “laugh” in the title singularly fails to elicit much in the way of such reaction among those it’s intended to entertain. That’s funny in a not-at-all-amusing sense. Here’s you sequel to A KICK UP THE EIGHTIES, with little to redeem its existence save ROBBIE COLTRANE as Edgar Bloodlusten, a rather more gory version of Edgar Lustgarten (“The limbs had been severed from the body and were scattered around the room. The torso had been eviscerated and the intestines draped like so much dripping tinsel on the tree. The head hung by a thin sliver of flesh where, despite repeated blows with an axe, the corpse had not been decapitated. The Police were baffled: murder – or a clever suicide?”)

    I new saw it but Tony Robinson used to get his kit off a lot in this, which probably is a good thing.

    Ah yes, Mason Boyne…my memory is of him in his garden painting everything that was green with orange paint!
