Rita Tushingham stars in this Hammer thriller as Brenda, a young Liverpudlian woman who goes to London in search of the perfect man and a better life. Unfortunately, the seamy underside of London grabs hold of her when she falls for a handsome but psychotic young man named Peter (Briant). Becoming increasingly obsessed with Peter, Brenda begins to lose touch with both herself and reality and fails to recognize that Peter is a misanthropic murderer. An incredibly bleak thriller, STRAIGHT ON TILL MORNING is a sardonic, nightmarish fairy tale that presents the flipside of early 1970s feminism.
