The Lair of the White Worm
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
In a remote corner of England's Peak District, a mysterious skull is unearthed. But even weirder is that Lady Sylvia (Amanda Donohoe) steals the skull for use in worshipping -- very erotically -- her pagan god, The White Worm, who hungers for the taste of virginal flesh. Adapted from the novel by Bram Stoker and starring Hugh Grant and Catherine Oxenberg. Directed with considerable comic panache by Ken Russell.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Christianity and paganism clash in Ken Russell's campy The Lair of the White Worm.
i like this movie very much it has become a cult classic, i will agree that it is unusual but it is definitely worth taking a look at.
80's Horror From Across The Pond
This wasn't among the top 10 of 80's horror, but it is in a list of classics that shouldn't be missed. With an above average cast and an entertaining story, Lair Of The White Worm gives us a fun run with the supernatural and earns a spot on any horror fans' dvd shelf.
this needs remastering badly
its a 1990 disc;
but when i extracted just the movie from my old cr*p CD disc it was still larger in Mb that the rented "HD" version-whats up with that?
