Movie Quote(s):
  • Maureen Whitman: It's as though we're all seeds of evil.
  • Roderick: Winter's coming in and the wolves coming with it.
  • Lady Patricia Whitman: [to Sean Whitman] Don't you know this house is cursed? You are cursed, and Edward's cursed, and everybody's cursed.
  • Lord Edward Whitman: Oona. Of course. Once I showed her mercy. I should have killed her.... Burke. I don't care how you do it - bring Oona to me.
  • Bully boy: [to Maggie] We can make you die a minute every day for a year.
Movie Trivia:
  • According to Gordon Hessler in his interview on the DVD version of this movie, the whole film was shot "at the mansion of Gilbert and Sullivan" - that is, of Arthur Sullivan and William S. Gilbert. As they did not live together, he is probably referring to the country residence of W.S. Gilbert.
  • The first film of Stephen Rea.
  • Selected by Quentin Tarantino for the First Quentin Tarantino Film Fest in Austin, Texas, 1996.
  • The title sequence was designed and animated by future Python Terry Gilliam.
