Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965) Poster

Trivia

The first of the "portmanteau" horror films to be made by Amicus Productions. According to co-producer Milton Subotsky, he was inspired to write a multi-story horror film by his admiration for Dead of Night (1945), which uses a similar format.
Dr Schreck's deck is the 1930 Paul Marteau version of the 'Marseille' Tarot, based on the 1760 woodblocks by Nicolas Conver. The industrialization of printing in the 1880s meant that greens and sky-blues were eliminated as designs were limited to four colors: red, blue, yellow and black.
