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?

Amazing film! Dominick was my favourite.
sucha classic brit horror. actig a bit stiff but original concept. would recommend
Excellent!! Most of my favorite films are from this era. There's just an ambiance to them that just makes me want more. Who doesn't love Lee and Cushing. If it weren't for my wife and daughter, I'd wish to be born in the 50's to see all the great Horror films of the 60's and 70's on the big screen growing up. At least I got to experience the amazing 80's. This is a true gem as most "Hammer" films. I'm assuming it's a "Hammer" film, although I didn't remember seeing it in the credits. The only thing not to love, is watching it on a monitor as opposed to the big screen!! Easily 5 skulls!!!
It's fun to watch for the performances, especially to see Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee as more timid personalities. It's more playful than scary, but worth a watch.
