Atmospheric and Entertaining.
10 September 2004 | by (Oakland, CA) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It has the wonderful atmosphere, photography and pacing that is sorely missed in today's films.

It is also nice to see a horror film where the cast look and act like adults, instead of a bunch of high school kids.

My favorite segments are Werewolf and Voodoo, though I did enjoy seeing Jennifer Jayne (Trollenberg Terror) in Vampire.

For those who do not understand the title, the reason the film is called Dr. Terror's House of Horrors is because, in the film, Dr. Shreck refers to his tarot card deck as his "house of horrors".
