  • Shadow of Death & Mrs Amworth (Rare Chills) DVD

    I've heard of the Mrs Amworth drama, but the Shadow of Death title seems to have completely escaped any mention online. Looking forward to snapping this up.

    Mrs Amworth is a film discussed on the 'Vault of Evil' (Ghost Stories etc.) website and is (or was) on You Tube. Thanks for pointing this out, Coleridge - I must check this out !!

      No problem Clarence, any info on the other title would be greatly welcomed, as there appears to be no trace of it online.

        Mrs Amworth is genuinely creepy and features a splendid performance from Glynis Johns.

            That practically makes you royalty then on this forum. How come there isn't a single mention of the thing online? was it a very low budget affair?

              Yes, low budget. Jack Woolgar and myself, a small crew, Barry Stokes, and a few others. It had a screening at Cannes in 1976, Vincent price was to have fronted it, it but he wanted full control over everything. This a still from the film. Jack with Barry.

                There doesn't seem to be any mention of it on IMDB, even when you look up the actors that were in it. What was it about, and how long was the running time ?!.

                      Hoping you enjoy it. Inside info: We shot it on a deserted Hunting Lodge Estate, with all interiors in the actual Lodge. The place really was creepy, so much so that if anyone needed to go....you know...outside; you went in two's! Kelp.

                        By the way Kelp, you do realise that everyone and his dog will now know your true identity when the credits roll? I say everyone, I of course mean the 150 people that buy a oopy. I don't suppose you played a hand in getting this released did you? if so, any chance of you inspiring some similar releases?

                          Ha,ha. Even producers have professional names, so not too concerned. No, sadly not personally involved, but I gave it my blessing to be released. I have no insider knowledge or influence on what is up for release. Sorry. Thanks for your interest in a film that would have just lingered on a shelf somewhere.

                              I read recently that all that had existed was a recording made on a Phillips 1500 video recorder and that a 16mm copy was found by Jack's son in the attic and that is the copy used for the DVD release. I've just bought a copy myself and I'm really looking forward to viewing it what a treat. Thank you Kelp for giving your blessing.
