The Lair Of The White Worm

Deeper View

Ken Russell’s phallic horror, based on the little read, and final novel by Bram Stoker, stars Amanda Donohoe - in her breakout role, and the very young Hugh Grant and Peter Capaldi. This is the story of another kind of vampire. Blood gets sucked, but not from the veins in the neck. Its defiant disrespect for plot and taste will win you over. If not the shear drug-like madness of this fantastic mess.

The Synopsis

On a farm owned by Eve Trent (Catherine Oxenberg) and her sister Mary (Sammi Davis), young archaeologist Angus Flint (Peter Capaldi) discovers a large and inexplicable skull, which he soon deduces belonged to the D’Ampton Worm, a mythical beast supposedly slain generations ago by the ancestor of the current Lord D’Ampton (Hugh Grant). The predatory Lady Sylvia Marsh (Amanda Donohoe) soon takes an interest in both Flint and the virginal Eve, hinting that the vicious D’Ampton Worm may still live.
