Fernando C (nl) wrote: the first hour of the movie is very well constructed, the characters are well crafted, and the pieces are set on the board in a great way, but the last half of it, it looks like it is a different movie, a very silly horror film that prefets cheap scares than building an creepy atmosphere as it first hour, everything the director did great in the beginning, he messes up trying to satisfy audiences giving them a jump every minute, but at the end nobody will remember the scary parst, at least me, Ill remember it s first hour and ill dream about how great this movie wouldve been if just would have been able to mantain the creepy storytelling of its 2 first acts

Tom B (jp) wrote: Beautifully photographed, the film makes you love London. But the plot is unrealistically karmic: the manipulators end up in hell; for the naive it works out. Wonderful performances. A special nod to Pauline Collins as the psychic (or not) Cristal. Great jazz soundtrack.

Anatoly S (us) wrote: Paul Verhoeven's Turkish Delight is a great film about two young passionate lovers. BUT it's also an amazing snippet of the early 70s. So much emotion in the film. Rutger Hauer is FANTASTIC in it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Chrisanne S (ca) wrote: The only quibble I have with this film is that it sometimes almost slows to a halt to accommodate Laughton's character. Not that it isn't nice to have a break- but the break is too long. Other than that it's all fun and games in this Comedy. Cummings and Laughton are really good with the faces. I especially like the ending.

Although not as gloriously horrible as his original blood trilogy it does deliver what you expect from the director. Cheap gory trills, horrid pacing & atrocious acting. If you're a fan of his schlock then there's a lot here to like. It's like watching a 3 car pile up & waiting for the coroner to arrive. Gruesome fun for undiscriminating taste. You can't hold too much against it because it knows what kind of mindless exploitation it is. It's business is blood & business is booming
