This Ken Russell (Tommy) adaptation of a Bram Stoker novel is drawn from a British folktale about a giant serpent. A Scottish archaeologist (Capaldi) uncovers a connection between the handsome lord of a country manor (Grant), a monstrous snake skull that he has discovered, and the seductive Lady Sylvia (Donohoe).
