The House That Dripped Blood
Directed by Peter Duffell
An inspector learns the horrible ways four owners of a secluded old home perished in this classic Amicus horror anthology written by Robert Bloch (PSYCHO). The first tale involves a horror writer who freaks out when the mad strangler he’s writing about appears outside his window. The second story stars Peter Cushing as a retiree drawn to a female statue in a creepy old wax museum. A girl and her dolly are the focus of tale three, which stars horror icon Christopher Lee, while vampire vixen Ingrid Pitt lends her talents to the fanged finale. Ready to enter THE HOUSE?

Classic scares, great atmosphere, surprisingly funny. Overall a very enjoyable watch. The 3rd story was easily my favorite
They sure don’t make anthologies like they used to! This is by far one of the best one for horror fans. Decades later it’s still an enjoyable watch with little gore but lots of creep factor. Vincent Price’s story will probably be the most memorable for you but all the tales were satisfying. Five Skulls!
By far, my favorite of the excellent Amicus Anthologies. Missrs. Crushing and Lee shine in these creepy tales.
One look at the cast list and you seem to be promised a whirlwind in this anthology. Sadly, these stories are none too compelling, a lot of these A-listers seemed to phone in their performances and the over arching story wasn't too interesting either. A real disappointing, not something you need to watch.
