      Supposedly the current German UHD is a shitty AI upscale harvested of its grain. Don't know if this will just be the same or not, probably just a re-release. Awesome cover though.

      The novelization has just come out, getting it for Christmas if I'm a good boy and don't go out and kill again...
      I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

        Wow, I had no idea this was happening.

        On the one hand, the idea of publishing a novelization of a film 50+ years after the fact seems kind of ridiculous, but on the other hand... I'm such a 'Blood on Satan's Claw' fanatic, I'm fairly sure I need to read it, and will enjoy it. On the list it goes...

          There's was an audio adaptation done 4 years ago featuring half of the League of Gentlemen as well as Linda Hayden.

          CDs of it are available on bandcamp https://thescarifyers.bandcamp.com/a...on-satans-claw



          The best audio/radio adaptation of a film I've listened to is An American Werewolf in London (1997), made for BBC Radio 1, which expands on the original scripts etc.

              Shame he didn't do more theatrical movies. His Quatermass series/film was pretty unique.

              His daughter is quite a familiar face on British TV.

                I'm very sorry to hear this news.

                I've often listed 'Blood on Satan's Claw' as my favourite film of all time, so I definitely need to give Haggard props.

                Speaking about it in interviews, he always seemed very serious and intense, which might help explain why he never managed to obtain much of a follow-up career in features. (I mean, I'm sure it was this approach which led to the film turning out as brilliantly as it did, but it probably wasn't quite the vibe the likes of Tony Tenser or Deke Heywood were looking for in the mid '70s, I can only imagine.)

                I also really like his 'Quatermass' series - it's odd, and disturbing, and perpetually underrated - and you've also got to admire his chutzpah for stepping in to take over 'Venom' after Tobe Hooper bailed, and actually delivering a half-decent movie. (What was his famous quote on that one? "The friendliest person on set was the snake," or words to that effect.)

                RIP.
