In a tale of ancient evil, Bram Stoker creates a world of lurking horrors and bizarre denizens: a demented mesmerist, hellbent on mentally crushing the girl he loves; a gigantic kite raised to rid the land of an unnatural infestation of birds, and which receives strange commands along its string; and all the while, the great white worm slithers below, seeking its next victim....
Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula, is one of the most enduring and masterful influences on the literature of terror.
The Lair of the White Worm, by master horror maestro Bram Stoker, is a wild and sprawling tale of the supernatural. When Adam Salton is invited from his home in Australia inherit and live in the estate of his long-lost granduncle, the only other surviving member of his line, he has no idea the bizarre shocks in store for him. It’s no wonder that Ken Russell, director of Altered States, took it upon himself to adapt this surreal horror for the screen. Here, Oliver Wyman preforms this story of mythical beasts, mysterious killings, and dreamlike situations with a calm storyteller's resolve. Wyman’s clear delivery grounds the sometimes convoluted, but immensely imaginative, tale of a pit where a terrible beast lies in wait.
