A Mind So Evil
'Crucible of Terror' is a curious film that, unfortunately, hinges on the acting talent of Radio 1 DJ turned thespian, Mike Raven.
Raven, who makes crappy old Christopher Lee look like Sir John Gielgud, lurches from scene to scene throwing elaborate gestures not seen on screen since Tod Slaughter hung up his top hat, all the while emoting unconvincingly in a booming, hollow sounding voice.
It's one of the most pathetic performances in film history, and I've seen that Bond film where Denise Richards is supposed to be a nuclear physicist.
