May 20th, 2013: The House that Dripped Blood

The House That Dripped Blood

Cast and Crew:   Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Denholm Elliott, Joss Ackland, Ingrid Pitt, Joanna Lumley

What It’s About:  Scotland Yard investigates four cases all connected to the same vacant house in this Amicus anthology film written by Robert Bloch.

Why Watch it Today?: Doctor Who  star Jon Pertwee died on today’s date in 1996.  Pertwee shines in his segment of The House that Dripped Blood, making fun of actors and horror films, as a famed (and demanding) horror actor who tires of the ever declining budgets for sets and costumes and goes out buys his own cloak for his latest picture-only this isn’t just any cloak.
