VENOM (AKA THE LEGEND OF SPIDER FOREST / 1971) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Simon Brent, Derek Newark, Terence Soall, Gerard Heinz, Gertan Klauber, Neda Arneric, Sheila Allen
Directed By:  Peter Sykes
Composed By:  John Simco Harrison

“A spirited horror/adventure movie. The action remains tautly visual, and the direction is imaginative enough to gloss over the worst narrative cliches.”
– David Pine, Time Out Film Guide

“A harrowing exercise in suspense.”
– Dr. Pseudonymous, SenselessCinema.com

A demented grab-bag of sinister cinematic tropes set in the picturesque Bavarian countryside, Venom (1971, aka The Legend of Spider Forest) spins a wicked web complete with a winsome seductress (Neda Arneric) who lures curious young men to a nasty death, all in the shadow of a Nazi-styled scientist (Terence Soall) aiming to craft an arachnid-derived nerve drug. Meanwhile, an unsavory brood of conspiratorial locals is keen on maintaining the mythos of the lethal “spider goddess,” while an undaunted artist (Simon Brent) perilously investigates. Director Peter Sykes here takes a first evocative leap into screen horror that would bear more frightful fruit with the later Hammer Studios productions Demons of the Mind (1972) and To the Devil…a Daughter (1976).
