"These British are all nuts"

An Amicus Productions portmanteau film written by Milton Subotsky with five segments. Neil McCallum encounters a werewolf in the Hebrides, Roy Castle has trouble with voodoo music, Alan 'Fluff' Freeman finds a strange plant in his garden, Christopher Lee flees from a disembodied hand and Donald Sutherland discovers he is married to a vampire. Not particularly rich in terror or horror or that original but it moves along at a good pace and never bores. Cinematographer Alan Hume films well in widescreen and colour and Elisabeth Lutyens provides an apt music score.

Peter Cushing in untidy goatee beard holds it all together as the eponymous Dr. Terror. It always amazed me that such a nice person in real life as Mr. Cushing was could suggest all kinds of fearful and unpleasant depths as he did. But then that is acting for you. The versatile British cast support admirably. Kenny Lynch, that under rated singer, pleasantly performs two self composed numbers.

A good film for the late evenings with a glass of wine. Red of course.

The Prophecies of Dr. Terror

Five passengers are in a cabin of the train to Bradley, when a sixth one asks whether he may join them in their cabin. He introduces himself as the tarot cards reader Dr. Schreck, a.k.a. Dr. Terror (Peter Cushing), who can tell the future of those who tap his cards deck three times. The first passenger to tap is the architect Jim Dawson (Neil McCallum), who is traveling to an island to renovate the house that belonged to his family that Mrs. Deirdre Biddulph (Ursula Howells) bought from him. He will learn that there is a werewolf in the house. Bill Rogers (Alan Freeman), who is traveling on vacation to meet his wife and daughter, taps the deck and learns that an intelligent creeper vine will threat their lives at his summer house. Then the musician Biff Bailey (Roy Castle) taps the deck and learns that he will bring a voodoo song from his tour in Caribe with creepy consequences. Then the snobbish and arrogant art critic Franklyn Marsh (Christopher Lee) learns that the artist Eric Landor (Michael Gough) will expose his arrogance and Franklyn will revenge with tragic consequences. Last, Dr. Bob Carroll (Donald Sutherland) taps the deck and learns that he will discover a secret about his fiancée Nicolle Carroll (Jennifer Jayne), who has just moved to a small town in New England to live with him, and his colleague Dr. Blake (Max Adrian). Further, they find their fate and who the mysterious fortune teller Dr. Terror is.

"Dr. Terror's House of Horrors" is a great anthology from Amicus Productions with five short stories. "Werewolf", "Creeping Vine", "Voodoo", "Disembodied Hand" and "Vampire" are great segments. Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Donald Sutherland are part of the cast and synonym of a great entertainment for fans of British horror films from the 60's. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "As Profecias do Dr. Terror" (The Prophecies of Dr. Terror")

funny and still has scares

yet another excellent British horror movie from the 1960's . I was pleasantly surprised with the special effects from such an old movie , each segment had it's own brand of humour and horror , perfectly combined . and if it wasn't for the fact they all died , that would have made for a fantastic train ride , with so much talent in one place . I recently watched this movie again , on horror channel , & in my opinion it has not lost any of it's charm , and is still very watchable today - a true testament to the actors , writer , and director . it is very skilfully filmed , written , and acted . a true must have for all collectors of horror classics .
