Fooled by the awesome film poster (again …)
9 June 2015 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

I've been watching horror and cult movies for more than twenty years and I've written nearly 3.500 user-comments for this lovely website, and yet … I still make the same damn idiotic rookie mistakes! In spite of the negative ratings and forewarning reviews from fellow horror fanatics, I keep on tracking down obscure and long-forgotten films purely based on their awesome looking vintage film posters. My latest failure is this "House of Terror", released in the generally speaking splendid horror year 1973. Several reviewers, whose opinions I never question, wrote already that this was a dreadfully dull and incoherent low-budget stinker, but – oh no – I spotted a cool poster (with the face of a petrified woman in extreme close-up) and absolutely had to watch it anyway. The opening sequence and the climax are decent horror material, albeit already senseless and irrelevant, but everything in between is literally unendurable nonsense! The film starts with the bloody massacre of an elderly couple, but then they're hardly ever mentioned anymore. They supposedly are the parents of the rich Emmett Kramer, and at the beginning of the film he hires the beautiful young private nurse Jennifer to look after his loathsome wife. From then onwards I lost most of my interest, due to non-stop boring and practically inaudible dialogs, but it's something about the nurse's hoodlum boyfriend wanting to steal the family fortune and a long lost evil twin-sister coming back for vengeance… Oh, and there's a deaf- mute and bearded housemaid running about in the house, but apart from one very essential sequence, she merely just serves as a piece of scenery. "House of Terror" is insufferably boring, ugly, predictable, derivative and badly acted. But hey, the poster is awesome!
