About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Looking north-east on The Green, Richmond in Greater London with Richmond Theatre in the centre distance. We are aware that there are films on the site that were added when the criteria for the inclusion of locations was very different from today and, as a result, there may be scenes missing from some productions. House of Mortal Sin (also known as The Confessional and The Confessional Murders) is a 1976 British horror slasher film directed and produced by Pete Walker.

All through the film there are some lovely touches - Sheila Keith is awesome as Meldrum's one-eyed housekeeper, threatening his infirm mother ("He's gone out again, I'm afraid… you're all alone again… with me") and simply raising one eyebrow on surveying the scene following the rosary bead strangulation. In 1983, when Cushing acted in Walker's final film, House of the Long Shadows, Walker learned that Cushing actually liked the script, but had other film commitments. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. For some strange reason, I always thought this was an alternate title for House of Whipcord so I never bothered to seek it out.Its plot concerns a deranged priest who takes it upon himself to punish his parishioners for their moral transgressions. Hearing that her friend Bernard has become a Catholic priest, Jenny attends church to seek him out but finds that the man taking confession is not Bernard, but the elderly Father Meldrum. This one's got a nice oversized region 2 art insert with lovely art on the other side that can't be seen through the neat black case.

So he's perfect casting as sexually obsessive Catholic priest Father Meldrum in this film, a man who gets his kicks in the confession box by asking his parishioners for more sexual details than is strictly necessary. And I haven't even mentioned we get another memorable turn from Walker regular Sheila Keith as Sharp's foreboding, eyepatch-wearing housekeeper Miss Brabazon. In 1983, when Cushing acted in Walker's final film, The House of Long Shadows, Walker learned that Cushing actually liked the script, but had other film commitments. I might try to make it to some of the other films available on Arrow Player before they are removed, but I don't think I'm going to have time.

Strand-on-the-Green in W4 with Kew Bridge crossing the River Thames in the background and a holder at Brentford Gasworks in the distance. The performance of Anthony Sharp in particular, as the immoral and internally tortured priest, was outstanding.
