Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors

Five short horror episodes, thinly linked, provide a usefully chilly package deal which will offer audiences several mild shudders and quite a lot of amusement. Even though occasional giggles set in, the cast, headed by experienced horror practitioners such as Peter Cushing, Michael Gough, Christopher Lee and Max Adrian, sensibly play it straight.

Five young men traveling on a routine train journey, meet up with the sixth passenger. He’s a mysterious, bearded stranger (Cushing) who reveals himself as Dr Schreck. With the aid of a pack of Tarot cards, he foretells the grisly deaths in store for the quintet. The film emerges as a kind of Cinemagoers’ Digest of how to come to a sticky end.
