Monster of the Day #226

Man, I forgot Hugh Grant starred in this.

  • Mr. Rational

    A big stretch from his usual romantic comedies.

    I really liked the song about the worm in this film and of course the usual amount of female nudity in a Ken Russel film.

  • Ericb

    I felt sorry for the pimply boy scout who probably thought he’d hit the nerd fantasy jackpot only to find a snake woman.

  • Rock Baker

    You’re doing something right, I suppose, since I’m completely stumped (what now? 4 times out of 226, maybe five, I’m losing my touch!). This looks like something from India or Thailand. You got me.

  • Ericb

    Ken Russell, Hugh Grant, Bram Stoker … This is one of the few I actually got right away.

  • roger h

    Got to see it Rock, not because it is that great a film but, definitely has a lot of fun stuff that you just don’t see everyday and Hugh Grant and the other Scotsman do have some fun dialog.

    What does a Scotsman keep under his kilt?

  • P Stroud

    The Boy Scout should have remembered the old adage: If it’s too good to be true it probably is.

  • Rock Baker

    And what was this masterpiece titled? Oh, and the year of release would help too!

  • roger h

    The Lair of the White Worm 1988

    never claimed it was a mantlepeice but, worth watching, had a thing for Sammy Davis after seeing it.

  • Rock Baker

    Okay, I’ve heard that title before. Knew nothing about it, but I’ve heard the title!

  • Petoht

    Huh. According to Netflix, I’ve seen this, but I can’t remember much about it. Seems I rated it “liked it” though, so… I guess I kinda liked it.

  • The high point in the movie, for me, was when the heroes tried Indian Snake Charmer music to try to hypmotize the evil cultists. That rocked. It was reminiscent of the kinds of plans my players put together in my games.
