On WTF: The Devil-Ship Pirates (1964)

By far not enough love is showered on Hammer's non-horror movies, for while really everyone must know by now how great Hammer's horror movies are, their contributions to other genres still don't get as much praise in the cult movie world as they deserve.

Case in point is the landlocked pirate movie The Devil-Ship Pirates by Don Sharp, a film good enough to inspire me to say nice things about Christopher Lee between the sarcasm. Click on through to my column on WTF-Film for more.

Where the heck have I been that I missed this one? Once again, you've inspired me, sir. I feel a "Horror on the High Seas" post coming on this October.

Most excellent. May I suggest a double feature with Hammer's even more landlocked (but wonderful) Captain Clegg, a film that does feature a swashbuckling Peter Cushing?
