The House that Dripped Blood, director Peter Duffell’s screen debut, written by renowned screenwriter Robert Bloch (whose book Psycho was turned into a cinematic masterpiece by Alfred Hitchcock), is set for one of Second Sight’s renowned must-have Limited Edition Blu-ray releases this Summer. Exciting news indeed for fans of the Amicus studio’s work.

The star-studded anthology film is presented in a stunning box set featuring original artwork from Graham Humphreys alongside a whole host of fantastic new special features. These include new essays from horror aficionados and a forty-page booklet. The House that Dripped Blood arrives on Blu-ray on 29th July 2019.

The story sees Scotland Yard’s Inspector Holloway (John Bennett – Watership Down, The Fifth Element) investigating a mysterious mansion with a ghoulish history and a chilling fate for its occupants in these four tales of terror…

Another segment stars Denholm Elliott (Indiana Jones, A Room with a View) as a hack horror writer haunted by visions of the murderous, psychopathic central character of his latest novel.

You’ll also find Peter Cushing (The Horror of Dracula, Star Wars) and Joss Ackland (The Hunt for Red October, Lethal Weapon 2) as a pair of friends fixated with a macabre waxwork museum that appears to contain a model of a woman they both knew.

Horror icon Christopher Lee (The Wicker Man, Lord of the Rings) appears as a widower who appears to mistreat his young daughter in Sweets to the Sweet. But when a well-meaning teacher intervenes, will she realise her mistake in time?

Jon Pertwee (Doctor Who, Worzel Gummidge) plays a temperamental horror film actor in The Cloak. When he buys a cloak for his vampire costume from a mysterious local vendor, his co-star (Ingrid Pitt – The Vampire Lovers, Countess Dracula) soon notices its strange powers.

Terror awaits you in every room of The House That Dripped Blood. Enjoy the Blu-ray with audio commentaries by director Peter Duffell and author Jonathan Rigby and film historian and author Troy Howarth.
