The Lair Of The White Worm

The Lair Of The White WormB

(out of 5)

An English village that celebrates the mythical slaying of a dragon gets the surprise of its life when it turns out that the beast still lives among its inhabitants. Landed gentry-man and visiting archaeologist team up with two farm girls (, ) after it becomes rather obvious that the sexy aristocrat next door () is actually a minion of the devil looking to make human sacrifices to her serpentine master. Lots of silly video effects and gore, but what really makes this one fail is a sluggish pace and a complete lack of fun. Donohoe is the only sign of life, hilariously stylish in her supercool wardrobe, while the rest of the cast is stony and unconvincing.
