Five strangers board a train and are joined by a mysterious fortune teller who offers to read their Tarot cards. Five separate stories unfold: An architect returns to his ancestral home to find a werewolf out for revenge; a doctor suspects his new wife is a vampire; an intelligent vine takes over a house; a jazz musician plagiarizes music from a voodoo ceremony; a pompous art critic is pursued by a disembodied hand.Written by

Marsh tells Dr. Terror to shuffle the cards and as He's shuffling them it fades into Marsh's story.. I've always thought Marsh's card tapping occurred off screen after the shuffling. So it isn't necessarily a goof depending on how you interpret it. See more »

The UK Anchor Bay DVD 2003 release presents the film under its German title "Die Todeskarten des Dr Schreck" with font in white on red background although the movie itself has a full English soundtrack. Owing to the unavailability of a better print, the final few seconds (a long shot where Schreck turns and the others follow) are missing and the closing credits are sourced from a VHS print. The UK Odeon Entertainment DVD 2010 release presents the film with its original UK titles and UK title "Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors" with font in red on dark background, having been restored by BBC Studios and Post Production. The closing credits are the same being sourced from a VHS print. See more »
Now where can a discerning viewer find a film in which Donald Sutherland is billed below Roy Castle, Alan Freeman and Kenny Lynch? Why, in Dr. Terror's House of Horrors no less!
So, see Neil McCallum do battle with the fiendish dog of death! Wince as Christopher Lee meets the world's most tactless ambulance driver! Marvel at Mr Sutherland as he does battle with a plastic bat on a (very) visible wire! Quake as Alan 'Fluff' Freeman works his catchphrase into the dialogue!
Still a lot more fun than any amount of British 'Lock, Stock...' tributes/rip-offs.
