Dr Terror's House of Horrors () | British horror anthology cult classicIt gets the blend of chills and fun just right and it serves up a terrific gamut of classic dark flavours. We have werewolves and vampires, vengeful supernatural hands, voodoo and a rampaging triffid to contend with upon this train-ride to oblivion. And boosting this fulsome broth of the macabre is a cast of both genre royalty and charismatic newcomers, stylish photography and economically inspired direction, all coming together to craft a redoubtable anthology that creeps and giggles along with the viewer. The latter, especially, I find very effective as the rhythm-pinching jazz maestro who incurs the wrath of an embittered voodoo god, perfectly capturing the spirited sense of spectral tribal retribution in this calypso-tinged nightmare. Critics seem united in the belief that Amicus honcho Milton Subotsky would perfect this formula over the following productions and peaking with Tales From The Crypt and Asylum , but I genuinely think that Dr. Even the weaker instalments of Creeping Vine and Vampire contain moments of exquisite inventiveness that totally justify their inclusion and their praise.
