    I haven’t seen this film since I was a kid! Thanks for the reminder. Anyone intrigued by it should check out the Dr Phibes films as well.

    Great movie! Saw it on the BIG SCREEN when released. After the framing story describes the horrible fates awaiting the passengers, it turns out they’re already in hell.

    Copyfighters take note of the Fair Usage debate at 3:57!! For heavens sake don’t let the DRM crowd see this film or they’ll start getting ideas!

    Boing Boing readers should also be aware of Steve Coogan’s excellent UK television series ‘Dr Terrible’s House of Horrible’. It featured The League of Gentlemen’s Mark Gatiss, the lovely Ronni Ancona and many other special guests. The episode ‘Voodoo Feet of Death’ was clearly inspired by this film. Highly recommended to anyone who loves Brit comedy, every episode is an homage to a horror genre – many of them made by Hammer.

    I remember some televangelist accused Jimi Hendrix’s music of containing voodoo rhythms that would enslave young minds. He was shilling, for a huge amount of money, a set of video tapes for de-metalizing your kids.

    I’m pretty sure this movie was the basis for the Second City TV parody “Dr. Tongue’s 3D House of Pancakes.”

    Here’s the related “3D House of Stewardesses.”

    DTHOH isn’t the strongest UK anthology horror by any means, but it has its moments – one segment with a decidedly Boingish theme is the the one with Christopher Lee as an obnoxious art critic, revolving as it does around a painting by a chimp. And of course the voodoo jazz story is always worth a watch.

    This is definitely a classic Trunk release, at any rate.

    Also this news comes a little too late as the pressing seems to be out of stock throughout the universe, except possibly on eBay where I’m afraid to even look.

    DO NOT EAT THIS RECORD. If you do, the Spirit of Jazz will infect you and your mates will have to be injected into your body in a miniaturized submarine to hunt down the Jazz cell.
