The House That Dripped Blood

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?

A bit campy, old school. It was ok. I didn't really find much enjoyment in it, but have to grade it on a bit of a curve for being dated.

I wanted to see this for years and... was pretty let down. I love the actors, but there was just nothing particularly memorable about any of the parts.

A bit campy, in a way that many classic horror films like this were, especially renowned Lee or Cushing vehicles. Although, I can imagine these tales may have shocked in 1971. That said, the latter two are especially enjoyable. And what a cast!
