Solid 70s Dreck in The House That Dripped Blood
"The House That Dripped Blood" (1971) is a British anthology flick with some stars from the Hammer Films firmament — Peter Cushing, Ingrid Pitt and Christopher Lee.
The four stories were all written by Robert Bloch ("Psycho"). They are unified by the creepy house that brings misfortune to whoever rents it.
The best is the last — "The Cloak," in which a hack horror actor gets a vampire cloak that, whoops, actually belonged to a vampire. Hilarity ensues.
A solid three-coiler.
