A Scotland Yard investigator looks into four mysterious cases involving an unoccupied house: 1) A writer encounters a strangler of his own creation, 2) Two men are obsessed with a wax figure of a woman from their past, 3) A little girl displays an interest in witchcraft, and 4) A film actor discovers a cloak which gives him a vampire's powers.

After his first frightening encounter while wearing the cloak, Paul Henderson reads several books on the subject of vampires. The one he is first holding is "The Vampire: His Kith and Kin" by Montague Summers. The back cover lists some of Summers' other works, including: "The Werewolf", "The Vampire in Europe", and the mis-named "The History of Witches" - the true title is "The History of Witchcraft", which means this may have been a "dummy book". Other titles seen on his desk are "The Haunted Screen" by Lee Kovacs and "Essentials of Demonology" by Edward Langston. See more »
As the inspector walks down into the cellar he's holding the candles to his right, yet we can see his shadow on his right as well. See more »
Another Amicus Production anthology starring Christopher Lee and the late Peter Cushing. It seems like you can never go wrong with those two
or Amicus for that matter; classic performances by both men indeed. I
don't consider these tales terrifying but they offer substance and quality that becomes enjoyable to the viewer. I won't go into any detail concerning each tale, but like usual, they all represent a unified theme. The conclusion is satisfying and I would love the opportunity to own this film. A fun way to spend your afternoon if you cherish the usual setup from Amicus - and, if you're not familiar, why not get acquainted?
