The Lair of the White Worm is an obscure film made in 1988 starring Amanda Donohoe and Hugh Grant. The film is based off of a book with the same title by Bram Stoker. The theme in the movie is taken from an old British folktale most commonly known as the myth of the Lambton Worm. A young, Scottish archaeologist named Angus Flint (Peter Capaldi) is excavating the dirt in England's Peak District when he stumbles upon a strange skull. The skull actually bares some resemblance to that of a large snake, or worm. Angus immediately ties his discovery to the ancient myth of d'Ampton, in which a man named John d'Ampton slayed a large, combative snake. But when a pagan woman named Lady Sylvia (Amanda Donohoe) steals the skull and brings it back to a hidden lair for worship, Angus Flint suspects the monster might still be alive. Lady Sylvia kidnaps Eve (Catherine Oxenberg), a young woman from the town, and intends on offering her virginal blood to the immortal snake. Flint makes every attempt to save Eve and stop the giant worm from wreaking havoc once again. The Lair of the White Worm is a British cult horror film classic you don't want to miss.moreless
