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. sixties british setting. no gore or violence just very gothic creepy stories. entertaining. could have influences from the twilight zone.
This is one of Amicus' best movies. All four stories were interesting with nice twist endings. I highly recommend it!
Love it! From Amicus who did Vault of Horror and Tales From the Crypt
It's no Tales From the Crypt, but The House That Dripped Blood still holds its own as a campy touchstone of classic horror anthologies, especially for those in search of segments featuring masters of the genre.
Not-bad 70's British anthology. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee are total pros.
