5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this any more!, 8 Sept. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The House That Dripped Blood [1971] [DVD] (DVD)
Don't be put off by the rather arch title (the director wanted to call it 'Death and the Maiden')...this isn't actually about a house that drips blood. There was an episode of Hammer House of Horror much, much later about a house which DID drip blood, but that's by the by.

This is one of those deliciously creepy but not really very gory old compendiums (or should that be compendia?) by Amicus, the studio which also gave us Dr Terror's House of Horrors, Tales from the Crypt and From Beyond the Grave. It is scripted by Robert Bloch who is best known for writing Psycho, which eventually became the Hitchcock film.

All are present and correct: Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee are excellent as ever. Jon Pertwee provides comic relief but never lets you forget how slick an actor he was. The supporting cast is superb.

Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I'm a sucker for this kind of thing. I wish they'd made more!
