Tagline: TERROR waits for you in every room in The House That Dripped Blood

Plot: Scotland's Yard's search for a missing film star leads them to a haunted house, which serves as the framework for this sharp British anthology of four horror tales starring icons Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Ingrid Pitt. In the four stories, a writer's murderous creation comes to life, a wax figure causes a fatal argument between two men, a young girl develops an intense and unhealthy interest in witchcraft, and a film actor finds a cape that helps him get a little too immersed in his role as a vampire.

external linkOverall this is a watchable time and while it isn't quite as good as Asylum it proves that Bloch's work makes for a decent batch of stories, gives us two horror icons in small roles and plays better than a good share of the anthology flicks of the time. 2.5/4

external linkA decent watch if you're into horror flicks that tell stories. I found this movie to be surprisingly decent, and although three of the four stories are predictable it's a good watch for something interesting, but don't bother if you're looking for somethi 6/10
