Sloane, a handsome, sexy and completely amoral young man, joins Kath’s household as a lodger and proceeds to manipulate her and her brother, Ed. He is recognized by Kemp (Dadda) as the murderer of Kemp’s former employer, whereupon Sloane murders Kemp. Sloane’s “just desserts” are not what one would expect.
If you haven’t seen this superb film – put it to the top of your “must view” list! Featuring two of Britain’s best character actors, the late Beryl Reid and the late Harry Andrews, this scintillating black comedy is based on Joe Orton’s wonderful play of the same name. Reid is marvellous as aging nymphomaniac Kath and Harry Andrews provides a superb foil as her roue brother Ed, who both attempt to secure the sexual services of their libidinous lodger, Sloane (played by Peter McEnery). Set in an eerie graveyard lodgehouse and with Alan Webb as their grubby father this brilliant film has gained cult status since its release over 30 years ago.
