" Last night was indeed pretty fabulous. I got to walk down the red carpet and see a presentation from many involved in the making of the film before it screened and special notice was given to the fact that TWIB is the first Hammer horror to be made entirely in the UK using cast and crew from the UK and funded by UK money. Was great to be there for this and when the Hammer logo appeared on screen, the audience erupted in to loud applause! Was a great moment."

Guests Arriving and an interview with Daniel Radcliffe.
"This is really the first 'Hammer Horror' to be released since the revival took place. The film looks utterly fabulous and is very atmospheric. It is also pretty damn scary at times too, with some really brilliant moments of suspense and sudden shocks, that are executed very well. I did think they could have cut a few of them and really gone down the 'less is more' route, thus rendering the prime shocks, even more effective, though they certainly didn't over-do it and have concentrated on building atmosphere far more than usual for modern films made in this genre. I did get the impression that they shot quite a lot and that a fair amount was left on the cutting room floor and therefore the flow is sometimes uneven, but over all, VERY GOOD good ! I can't wait for a Directors cut, as 11 seconds has reportedly been cut to allow for the 12 rating, in order that the legions of 'Potter fans' can see the film too "

"Daniel Radcliffe is also quite convincing. Granted, he doesn't have a huge amount of dialogue, but he conveys varying degrees of fear rather well! Happily for Hammer, I think it could do very well, as people are always suckers for being scared and the collective gasps were all very enjoyable!"
