Dr Terror’s House of Horrors

directed by Freddy Francis starring Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Donald Sutherland

An architect returns to his ancestoral home to find a werewolf out for revenge; a doctor discovers his new wife is a vampire; a huge plant takes over a house; a musician gets involved with voodoo; an art critic is pursued by a disembodied hand. All because five strangers on a train let Peter Cushing do a tarot card reading! Long available only as a shitty pan-and-scan version, this staple of late-night British television is getting a rare Techniscope screening, in an original Technicolor print!

Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal

directed by Boris Rodriguez in English starring Thure Lindhardt, Dylan Smith and Georgina Reilly

Part muse. Part sleepwalking cannibal.

“Beneath the surface outrageousness lies a surprisingly, satisfyingly dark little fable about the essentially cannibalistic nature of artistic inspiration.” —Mike D'Angelo, AV Club

The Invisible Man

directed by James Whale starring Claude Rains

A scientist finds a way of becoming invisible, but in doing so, he becomes murderously insane. This movie goes from laff-riot jokes to “holy shit did he just strangle that police officer??” violence in .0002 seconds and good lord does that make this film amazing!

<cite>Mark of the Vampire</cite>
Sat 13 Oct, 2012, 1:45pm

Mark of the Vampire

directed by Tod Browning starring Lionel Barrymore, Elizabeth Allan, and Bela Lugosi

Basically an excuse for Tod Browning and Bela Lugosi to revisit Dracula for a completely different studio, this film has all of the goofy cobwebs, bats on strings, and people looking TOTALLY SCARED that we really love in early horror movies! It’s a throw-away plot involving some murdered nobleman and a legend about a vampire, but boy do we love watching Bela Lugosi turn into a bat!
