Pete Walker’s House of Mortal Sin follows his familiar theme of institutional hypocrisy—using extortion, sexual perversion, and giallo-esque shock murders to lampoon the church like only Pete Walker can. A sadistic, wretched, corrupt, homicidal individual who probably couldn’t have been portrayed any better than what Sharp accomplished. Best known as the home office minister in A Clockwork Orange, he had an extremely distinctive, instantly recognisable look and sound, with a ball-shaped head and massive hook nose, and the plummiest, most clipped English accent imaginable. Britischer (B-Movie) Horror (thriller) aus dem Jahr 1976, unter der Regie von Pete Walker mit Anthony Sharp.

Originally Peter Cushing was offered to play Father Xavier Meldrum and at the time there were some rumours that Cushing hated the script. Having had a crack at the judiciary it was time for Pete Walker to turn his sights on the Catholic Church. I may have remembered some of the movies more fondly than I should have and I blame this entirely on how much I love Sheila Keith. The next morning, Jenny makes her way to Father Meldrum's presbytery, where he lives with with his frail Mother and Miss Brabazon the housekeeper.International products have separate terms, are sold from abroad and may differ from local products, including fit, age ratings, and language of product, labeling or instructions. THE CONFESSIONAL is also known as HOUSE OF MORTAL SIN (also available on Blu-Ray from Redemption Films/Kino Lorber under this title) and THE CONFESSIONAL MURDERS.

Having the villainous murderer a repressed and crazed Catholic priest in modern times brought a new and different kind of monster to the catalog of British horror, and he’s marvelously played by Anthony Sharp. When Father Cutler confronts Father Meldrum about the tape, Meldrum plays another tape that makes Jenny look like she is lying.If you have any information regarding this production, the locations or, even better, some comparison shots please contact us. He always came across as kindly and genteel, but with an undercurrent of perversion, as if he almost certainly would've been caught masturbating in public, but into a pressed silk handkerchief or something. The script relies too much on mild sacrilege for its effects, instead of concentrating on more interesting aspects of religious repression. Strand-on-the-Green in W4 with Kew Bridge crossing the River Thames in the background and a holder at Brentford Gasworks in the distance.
