Product Information
Robert Bloch (PSYCHO) wrote this quartet of tales that fit together to solve a mystery that serves as the catalyst for each segment. The setup has a doctor who is trying to become the new head of an asylum has to figure which one of four patients held the position previously before he is allowed to take over. So, one by one, each patient tells their story, leading to an unexpected finale. This is just about the best of the sub-genre of anthology horror films, as each segment works both as a stand alone film, and as part of the overall mystery. AKA "House of Crazies."
From England's celebrated horror specialists Amicus Studios (The Beast Must Die, And Now the Screaming Starts, Tales From the Crypt) and American screenwriter Robert Bloch (the novel "Psycho") come four jolting tales of terror and insanity. Inmates in the

One of the patients in an institution for the incurably insane was once its director, and a young psychiatrist (Robert Powell) has to figure out which one as they all tell him their stories. What better setting for a horror anthology? It's an inspired framing device, making this one of the better examples of the genre.

Director Roy Ward Baker (Quatermas and the Pit) builds momentum with each story until the dark and deliciously bloody climax. This Amicus Studios production looks visually dull compared to Hammer's gothic gloss, but it features a great British cast (including Patrick Magee and Hammer stalwart Peter Cushing), and ultimately Baker makes that gloomy look work for his increasingly creepy production. Amicus produced a series of horror anthologies, including the original 1972 Tales from the Crypt and The Torture Garden (also scripted by Bloch).
