The Eye of Satan (1988)

A look at 1988’s The Eye of Satan, a mixture of British horror and British gangster film starring Cliff ‘GBH’ Twemlow. I do have this irritating habit of pronouncing his ‘Twem-a-low’ (as in the band The Tremeloes) so apologies in advance if I’ve screwed up the pronunciation anytime during this video. I do like to champion his films, even if i have trouble getting his name right!!!
