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).

This did not arrive in the clear case as posted in the photo. It’s a standard blue case that sticks out like a sore thumb amongst my other Twilight Time titles. A huge misstep on their part considering the line is directed at collectors.
This was the rather flippant response I received via email:
Good afternoon,



A case is a case, just a piece of plastic to hold the most important portion, the film… We are using a different pressing plant than what the previous owners of Twilight Time did and so the blue cases are the only ones offered to us. We did not know this until the titles went into production so our artist had copied the previous artwork style. Moving forward our titles will show the blue cases in the picture to more properly represent their true packaging.



Sincerely,



Katie
