Lair of the White Worm, The





"Her charisma keeps suspicions away…"


An archeological student has discovered a reptilian skull by digging in his back yard. A few vampire-like murders shake this small peaceful town in England.

The inhabitants suspect Sylvain, the owner of an immense manor. The story behind the archeological discovery seems to be related to the recent disappearances.

Quality


Originality


This adaptation of a Bram Stocker novel is very disorienting and slow. It is good to see something other than conventional vampires but this movie is still a failure.

Once in a while, the producer offers us one of his fantasies (girl fight, pedophiles and submission) in such a harst manner that we believe that we are stuck in a dream, lacking any rationality. For the most part, the actors are good. This film is filled with metaphors and the worm mentioned in the title is the target of all them. The sexual metaphors follow each other and even with the gothic atmosphere, the scenes often become ridiculous.

The story is not very interesting. Just like many other moments in the development, the special effects are pitiful. The heroes use, among others, bagpipes to fight evil: a solution that works even though it did not appear to me as being a logical one.
