Storyline

Echoing the distinctive and much celebrated great British Gothic Horror films of the 1960-70s, The House of Screaming Death will uphold their successful traditions with the telling of four macabre tales of terror all told by the mysterious Architect. Each horrific segment delves into explicit corners of the supernatural, summoning such damned creations as the ghostly Lady in Grey, stories of Witchcraft most foul, Vampirism and the Occult. But as these horrifying tales unfold with nightmarish conclusions, the Architect also has one last shocking secret of his own to tell.

Disappointing
21 January 2019 | by scarlettsdadSee all my reviews

Like another reviewer, I also wanted to like this film. It's supposed to be in appreciation of the Hammer movies of the 70s as well as other horror venues, and as a fan of Hammer and American International films from my youth, I was hopeful that this would be enjoyable. However, it pales far in comparison.

Gone are the bright, rich colors and creepy music. All of the sequences are gloomy and dark. The acting is wooden at best, and I struggled with boredom throughput the film. In one episode, a girl stabs someone in the chest with a pitchfork. The tines only go in about an inch-hardly fatal-but the recipient immediately gushes blood from their mouth and collapses. Then the girl puts her hands to her face and they are covered in blood. How in the world do you get blood on your hands while holding a pitchfork? Minor, yes, but annoying. This is not "Dracula Has Risen From the Grave." It is just not scary or interesting. In all, a disappointment.
