Hilarious 1970s horror flick with Roger Daltry! - The Legacy review by PV

Spoiler Alert
13/12/2015

Hilarious kitsch British horror flick from 1978.

Worth watching to see how, in those days, blood was pinker and runnier, and they don't seem to have invented safety glass yet!

Also great to see Roger Daltry 'hamming' it up big time!

A Friday Night take-away film, complete with 1970s moustaches and camp horror.

Mad!
