HOUSE OF TERRORS 1965 (SINISTER CINEMA)

Underrated and seldom seen Japanese horror tale finally available!

Sinister Cinema brings us this film in widescreen, an beautiful black an white. It is a Japanese movie dubbed into Italian with English subtitles, but don't let that deter you.

This tale involves a hunchback that takes care of a house that is haunted by the ghosts of its previous owners. A trio of people arrive including a doctor, hie beautiful niece and his assistant. they soon find out that the house is indeed haunted as they are accosted by loud noises, bending doors and much more.

They all die horribly. The ending is really good and it is a mystery to me why this film hasn't been seen more. It reminded me of "The Haunting" and the Italian dubbing gives it a feel of a Mario Bava thriller.

I really recommend this film, and Sinister is to be commended for bringing this to the attention of film fans.

  1. I love these kinds of films about haunted houses or asylums especially if they are in black and white that makes them even better. I was recently called a film snob and it made me smile.
