Happy Birthday Shane Briant!

Shane Briant in Straight on Til Morning (1972)

One of my favorite Hammer horror stars, the wonderful Shane Briant, is celebrating his 64th birthday today. He recently stopped by Cinebeats and left a link to a new youtube film he made where he revisits the character of Peter Clive that he played in Peter Collinson’s horror film Straight On Til Morning (1972) and I thought today would be a great day to share it. Straight On Til Morning is one of Hammer’s best and most unusual films in my opinion and features one of Briant’s greatest performances so it was really fun to see him in the title role again some 30 years later. Maybe someone could be encouraged to film a sequel? Shane Briant would obviously be up for it!
