English And Now the Screaming Starts! is a costume horror movie in the spirit of high-quality Hammer productions, i.e. with nice sets, camerawork, music, professional casting and a bit of cliché (the same dogs again!). And with a traditionally simple story that would suffice for a 20-minute episode of a TV series. With the passage of time, this type of film irretrievably faded into obscurity in emotional terms and became interesting only for a narrow circle of viewers. ()
