The Flipside: The Body Beneath + Q&A

Following a very rare Flipside screening of Andy Milligan's The Body Beneath (1970), a campy vampire romp set in a Highgate cemetery, actor Jackie Skarvellis recalls the fun of shooting the ultra low budget movie in Hampstead alongside Berwick Kaler (now a popular pantomime dame) and Gavin Reed (who later appeared in Tootsie).

Milligan famously had a troubled relationship with his female stars, although Skarvellis reflects that she has worked with 'far nastier directors' - she collaborated with him again on The Rats Are Coming! The Werewolves Are Here! (1972).
