Cry of the Banshee

1970

Gordon Hessler
Director

A pious family attempts to rid the local populous of its pagan element unaware that the beast lurks among them. And by "pious" we mean that the family is far more debauched than anyone they are persecuting.

Depraved little horror item with many bared bodkins, good atmosphere and acting let down by a halloween costume monster.
