Horror on Snape Island (aka Tower of Evil) +Secret 2nd Feature!


Double Feature!

1972 dir Jim O’Connolly w/Bryant Haliday, Jill Haworth, Mark Edwards, Jack Watson, Anna Palk • 89 min • 35mm

Brattle Theatre co-founder Bryant Haliday left the theater in the mid-60s to pursue a career as a movie actor… unfortunately, his on screen career was not as successful as his time behind-the-scenes and he ended up joyfully hamming it up in schlock like HORROR ON SNAPE ISLAND. In this Hammer Horror rip-off, a group of investigators travel to a remote island to look into a set of gruesome murders – and maybe make off with a fortune in Phoenician gold while they’re at it. Unfortunately for all involved, they are not alone on the island!

HORROR ON SNAPE ISLAND will be followed by a secret co-feature – a nasty Italian proto-slasher featuring one of the most legendary (and creepiest) character actors of the silver screen.

“The gore effects are actually quite impressive for the time with plenty of airborne plasma and severed limbs.”
