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.

i love classic horror 🎃
Rosemary's Baby in mid 18th century England. I'm an absolute sucker for British 1970s horror, and this was no exception, ESPECIALLY because it featured Peter Cushing while not being a Hammer film. If you like Hammer-style films you'll like this one.
Great set design and production value, but far too melodramatic to sit through. It becomes a series of scenes of the heroine running from one room to the next for the duration of the movie.
