Orchard End Murder - Dual Format (Includes DVD)
  • Description

    The BFI Flipside presents...
    THE ORCHARD END MURDER (DVD + Blu-ray)
    A film by Christian Marnham

    This latest release from BFI Flipside is the newly remastered rarity - one of a series of British mini-features that shocked UK cinema audiences during the 1970s and early 1980s

    Set in an idyllic Kent village one balmy summer during the 1960s, this obscure British oddity is a macabre tale of murder and mischief

    A young woman from the suburbs (Tracy Hyde), bored by a countryside tryst, wanders off to explore her surroundings. When she meets a gnome-like stationmaster and his towering, half-witted railway-worker friend (played by Casualty's Clive Mantle), an initially strange encounter turns sinister among the trees of a nearby orchard.

    Written and directed by Christian Marnham and shot by Pete Walker's regular cameraman Peter Jessop, The Orchard End Murder is a violent, darkly humorous thriller, unseen since it originally shocked UK cinema audiences as the supporting feature to Gary Sherman's Dead and Buried.

    Special Features:

    • Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition
    • The Showman (Christian Marnham, 1970, 25 mins): Short documentary about fairground Wild West showman Wally Shufflebottom
