Scottish archaeologist Angus Flint discovers an odd skull amid the ruins of a convent that he is excavating...

Angus Flint (Peter Capaldi), archaeologist is rooting around an old convent when he finds a rather toothy skull of a supposedly unrecorded beastie. He may have uncovered a lot more.

Some times legend is based on more than facts. And what you don’t know may bite you.

I have to admit I did not read the book. I have seen other Ken Russell movies; but I do not recognize his style. However wyrmen works as well if not better than bats in that part of the world. This movie has everything that makes up a good horror film. There are victims, unaware good guys and even a few "stay in the car" scenes. There is even a song and a tune to go with the story.

As with most good DVD’s the goodies are almost as good as the film is.
