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?

Loved this, but how can you not love a picture with both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee? The first sequence has some genuinely creepy moments even for an old horror buff like me; the fourth sequence, which I actually think is the weakest one, has one great in-joke near the beginning. Definitely worth your time.
How can anyone turn down a chance to see Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in this British Amicus Anthology horror film. Despite the title there's not a drip of blood in this film even in the vampire segment but that doesn't mean this is not a thrilling set of horror stories written by Robert Bloch (Psycho) in the spirit of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone / Night Gallery. Also in the cast are Denholm Elliot (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Joss Ackland (Lethal Weapon 2) and Ingrid Pitt (The Vampire Lovers).
What a great movie 🎥
