Review The Creeping Flesh (1973)

Doctor Omega


Your thoughts on this movie.....

A Victorian-age scientist returns to London with his paleontological bag-of-bones discovery from Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately, when exposed to water, flesh returns to the bones unleashing a malevolent being on the scientist's family and friends.

This is one of those few films that has genuinely unnerved me when I originally saw it many moons ago...

That ending...

When that... cloaked thing... knocks the door... That pounding on the door....

I had a similar response to Carpenter's THE FOG. With the pirates thumping on the door.

I guess the fear was, what if it came to my house? :emoji_scream:
