A Hammer classic. with some extremely scary and erotic moments. Fife: Adam Smith. I The Wild Angels ( 18) (Roger (‘ormarL 1S. 1966) Peter l‘onda. Nancy Sinatra. Bruce Dern. 93 ruins. Notorious at the tiute. (‘orman's biker movie seems dated now. lacking the wide American vision of Iz'mv Rfl/(W'. That said. the relentless nihilism of the movie lifts it above typical teen exploitation and the fact that real Hells Angels helped the production adds an uncomfortable edge. lidinburgh: liilrn (iuild. I Wild At Heart (18) (David Lynch. 1S. 1990) Nicholas (‘age. Laura Dern. Diane 1.add, Willem Dafoe. 127 rnins. Lynch's much-hyped (‘annes prize-winner turns out to be weird and wondrous in its own way. if not quite as cohesive as the earlier lihu' li'Ii-rr.

Highly recommended. Glasgow: (ii-'1'. I Witchtinder General (18) (Michael Reeves. l'K. 1968) Vincent Price. 1an()gilvy. Rupert Davies. 87 rnins. ()ne of the best British horror films ever. utterly bleak and tilled with the nihilism of director Reeves (who committed suicide :1 year after its completion).

I The Young Poisoner's llandboolt (18) (Benjamin Ross) Hugh ()‘Conor. Antony Sher. Charlotte Coleman. 105 mins. Adolescent bitterness and a schoolboy fascination with toxic substances become a lethal chemical cocktail when teenager Graham Young starts poisoning family and friends.
