One of Hammer’s maddest films (based on a Dennis Wheatley novel) the pivotal moment is when it shifts gear from a ship in peril (set adrift, Chinese cook goes insane) to carnivorous vegetation, (mad chef jumps overboard and is devoured) giant crab monsters, a ships’ graveyard, balloons and snow shoes to get about – and, to be honest, no one expected the Spanish Inquisition.

Michael Carreras wrote and directed (taking over from Leslie Norman - Barry's dad, whom he fired), as another attempt to broaden Hammer’s repertoire. Most of the company’s artistic triumphs and fascinating failures can be laid at his door.
