Curse of the Crimson Altar
Directed by Vernon Sewell
When his brother disappears, Robert Manning pays a visit to the remote country house he was last heard from. While his host is outwardly welcoming, and his niece more demonstrably so, Manning detects a feeling of menace in the air with the legend of Lavinia Morley, Black Witch of Greymarsh, hanging over everything.
A young man in search of his brother stumbles upon a coven led by a warlock who is plotting revenge for the death of his female ancestor burned to death in the 17th century.
Cast: Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee, Mark Eden
Not for me
Great acting, nostalgic feels, pretty ladies and Christopher Lee. Say no more.
love this one!
What junk. If you like your 'horror' at about Scooby-Doo grade, British, brainless and slightly groovy, then this will hit your sweet spot. But if you want ANYTHING resembling a horror film, watch something else on Shudder! Surprisingly restrained Christopher Lee, still-dignified but clearly in bad shape Boris Karloff and a totally phoning-in Barbara Steele do nothing to redeem this.
