Well this is by far the worst Hammer film I've ever seen so far. Extraordinary dull and tedious with some of the least likeable and unattractive cast possible. The story is about an ugly girl who moves to London to get a baby (she's a real wack job). She meets a guy who is well considered attractive I guess and she falls for him. Oddly he seems interested in her too (he agrees to think about giving her a baby and letting her stay if she acts like a maid for him) but mind you we know he's a killer. Perhaps if they'd held back that information instead of letting us know right in the beginning of the film there may have been some suspense. The trouble was that he wasn't killing really for the rest of the film, and even the ending was completely unrewarding. There were maybe a couple of moments worth viewing but certainly not interesting enough to bother with the rest of this tripe. Seriously disappointing and I wouldn't recommend this one to anyone.
