The Blockhouse

Loose Cannons Episode #19 – The Blockhouse

Loose Cannons returns!

In true podcast fashion we’re back from a summer hiatus and ready to start season two with a bang! And by bang we mean director Clive Rees’ 1973 drama The Blockhouse, without a doubt one of the worst Cannon films we’ve seen to date – and that’s saying something.

Noted for featuring one of Peter Sellers’ few dramatic performances, the film tells the story of a group of POWs and labourers who become trapped in a bunker during the D-Day invasions. The group has plenty of provisions so they decide to wait for rescue… and end up waiting several years.

Is The Blockhouse worthy of the Cannon canon? Listen to find out:
