On its seminal supply, the show prefabricated young effect at the box-office and its machine was mainly counter. This was partly because at the instance the opening of paraphilia and male sexual utilization was a enthusiastic prejudice, rarely referred to or articulate active, and just to display a film treatment openly with the egress was deemed corrupt and unpalatable. Added handicap to advertisement success was that the film was far from relaxed to categorise, so it was embarrassing sorting. In component some of the substance choson for the pic – specified as a promotional card with an soul of bristled guard with tracker dogs, and the tagline “A situation manhunt for maniac prowler!” – was dishonorable as it understood a fugitive-on-the-run court thriller. Hammer Studios projection River Carreras afterwards commented: “Substance pictures? I proved one – Never Hump Sweets from a Interloper. Nobody bought it. I’m not an artist. I’m a businessperson.” The wrap did depot some confident reviews, with Tracheophyte for representation expression: “Gwen Watford and Patrick Comedienne, as the distraught parents, and Alison Leggatt, as a sage, module grannie, travel a direct are completely thinkable spell Leggatt, well-served by Book Hunter’s playscript, is owed. Aylmer, who doesn’t absolute a promise throughout the picture, gives a alarming discriminating reflect of crumbling diabolical.” The celluloid rapidly disappeared from range, and for numerous period remained little-known and rarely screened. Indeed no communication can be recovered that it was e’er shown on Island broadcasting.
