31 Days of Halloween - Day 16 - Movie

A scientist creates a creature that can transform between the form of an attractive woman and a giant, blood drinking, deaths head moth. Peter Cushing is the police inspector out to solve her murders.

The Blood Beast Terror (1968), which Peter Cushing has declared to be the worst movie he's starred in, is not much to speak of. It's plot is essentially that of Hammer's The Reptile (1966) with a little Bride of Frankenstein (1935) thrown in. It's barely diverting enough to sit through, and will, no doubt, be best known for having Wanda Ventham, who happens to be the mother of Benedict Cumberbatch, starring as the were-moth.
