Girly is a British horror-comedy movie from 1970, directed by Freddie Francis and starring Michael Bryant, Ursula Howells, and Pat Heywood. Set in an isolated country estate, the film tells the story of a dysfunctional family and their unusual dynamics. The movie opens with a scene of Girly, a young woman, luring a young man into the woods, where they are promptly attacked by her "family." We soon learn that Girly lives in a dilapidated mansion with her "Mumsy" and "Daddy" and her brother "Sonny," who all share an unhealthy and twisted relationship. Girly and her family only refer to each other by their familial titles, adding to the surreal atmosphere of the film.

The family, who are entirely cut off from the outside world, spends their time playing bizarre games, dressing up in animal costumes, and generally acting like children. However, their behavior becomes increasingly sinister when they start kidnapping outsiders and playing deadly games with them. Meanwhile, Girly becomes fixated on a new "playmate" in the form of a young gentleman named "New Friend."

As the story unfolds, the audience is taken on a wild and unsettling ride, where the boundaries between reality and fantasy are blurred, and the family's twisted allegiances are tested. As outsiders are brought into the house and become a part of their strange world, the family's secrets slowly start to unravel, and their facade of innocence begins to fade.

Girly is a visually striking film, with its colorful costumes, quirky sets, and atmospheric lighting. The performances are fantastic, with Ursula Howells delivering a standout performance as the controlling Mumsy, and Pat Heywood giving a delightfully creepy performance as the childlike Girly. The film's script, written by Brian Comport, is both funny and macabre, with elements of black comedy that add to the overall unsettling feel of the movie.

Overall, Girly is a cult classic that showcases the brilliance of British horror-comedy. With its twisted storyline, impressive visuals, and standout performances, it is a must-see for fans of the genre.

Girly is a 1970 crime movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 41 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5.
