Dr Terrible's House of Horrible

Dr Terrible's House of Horrible

British horror fans got a special treat in 2001, when Steve Coogan, the famous funnyman behind the classic Britcom “I’m Alan Partridge”, used his talents to spoof classic horror anthologies from Hammer and Amicus in this six-episode series. Each episode stars Coogan in the dual role of Dr. Terrible and his story’s leading man, while horror favorites like Simon Pegg, Sheila Keith and Warwick Davis appear in silly supporting roles. Some of the famous titles parodied include THE VAMPIRE LOVERS, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, THE VAULT OF HORROR and THE TERROR OF THE TONGS.

Entertaining satires of old horror movies. The acting, stories, direction and production values were well done, and Coogan's makeup was really top notch. The British humor was very dry and fell flat much of the time but still worth the watch.

Wasn't expecting much but all of these are spot-on parodies. Steve Coogan is brilliant and the cast captures his humor perfectly. Kudos to the co-writers and director, too. Right! Well done!
