And Now The Screaming Starts
Directed by Roy Ward Baker
A couple fall prey to an old servant's curse after moving into a family castle in this gothic horror film from director Roy Ward Baker (ASYLUM). At the end of the 1700's, Catherine (Stephanie Beacham) and Charles' (Ian Ogilvy)' honeymoon is thrown into chaos when Catherine is raped and impregnated by a ghost. Before long they've got to contend with a murderous severed hand, a skeptical psychiatrist (the great Peter Cushing), and other creepy circumstances. One of Amicus Studios' few non-anthology films, ANTSS remains a superb slice of 70's British brutality.

Cast: Peter Cushing, Herbert Lom, Patrick Magee
Definitely a 5/5 for fans of classic 1970's gothic horror. Effects were excellent for the time and Peter Cushing is fantastic.
Greatest good movie. Love movies like that.
Avery good classic horror. Great storyline.
Classic gothic horror. Beautiful sets and costumes as a backdrop for this ghostly melodrama. I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the practical effects. Well shot and well acted, this is a fun little watch.
A wonderful classic. I remember seeing this a few years back when AMC still did fear fridays. I feel bad for the bride, she is an innocent in all that's going on. I feel that Sylus did deserve his revenge but not at the cost of other innocents. All in all, good movie that I enjoy watching a lot.
