The British Horror Film, 1971-1976

. . . Britain's horror practitioners proceeded to spice up their products considerably. From the blink-and-you'll-miss-them dabs of nudity in pictures like PEEPING TOM and DEVIL DOLL, British horror films were now progressing to exploitative details which would have been unimaginable only five years before. Hammer led the way with a film - their first of the 1970s - which was emblematic not only of relaxed censorship but also of the American desertion of Britain's sinking studios. Apart from a continuation of their Warner Bros liason for three final Draculas, THE VAMPIRE LOVERS, would be Hammer's last film to benefit from American finance; most subsequent films would be backed either by Rank or EMI. It also featured bare breasts galore and a voracious lesbian vampire!
---- - from English Gothic, 2000

. . . so it was left to the independents to find new directions, and there were plenty, some of them interesting, some of them just plain weird. But the contrast between the films of Peter Walker and Anthony Balch, and those of Tyburn, are so great as to warrant a chapter to themselves
---- - from Fragments of Fear, 1996
