When Students Alex and Patricia (David Ladd and Sharon Gurney) discover a dying man in their local underground station, they spark off an investigation that reveals a sinister and macabre plot that even turns the stomachs of hardened police officers Calhoun and Rogers (Donald Pleasence and Norman Rossington). Prominent people, it seems, have been disappearing from London tube stations, and an MI5 agent (Christopher Lee) is called to help solve the deepening mystery.

Extremely dated British horror - Death Line review by AP

Spoiler Alert
02/06/2018

Extremely dated British horror film from 1972 set on the London Underground.

The 1972 production has got quite a cult following but by modern standards (it is nearly 50!) see Creep in 2004 it is like watching a film from a bygone age.

The cast is headlined by Donald Pleasence as a rather rude police inspector.

The story is based on mysterious disappearances at Russell Square tube station. We find out that there was a tunnel accident near the station that lead to the loss of several lives of men and women builders.

The film was marketed as a zombie film on its U.S. release being renamed Raw Meat.

The film also has Christopher Lee in a role as an MI5 agent in a scene that was probably shot in an hour!

The film does have some gory scenes as we see the zombie like survivors of the accident.

I've never heard of the film before.

Interesting curio - Death Line review by AL

Spoiler Alert
05/05/2021

I was prompted to rent the movie due to comedian Robin Ince's enthusiasm for the film which he's shared in his Uncanny Hour podcast. Although it's an interesting premise and Donald Pleasance turns in a striking, funny, slightly knowing post-modern sort of performance, I was a bit bored and underwhelmed by the film. The plot peters out at the end alarmingly and I was left feeling a bit bemused by the whole thing. The 'famous' 7 minute tracking shot is impressive and the rest of the film could have done with a similar amount of style and imagination. Christopher Lee's one scene cameo is just barmy. If you want to see Pleasance in a cult film, go for Wake in Fright which is fantastic.
