Packaged in a beautiful black-lacquered wooden storage case, this DVD collection includes four horror classics: Bloody Pit Of Horror (1965), The Devil's Messenger starring Lon Chaney as Satan (1961), The Head (1959), and The House On Haunted Hill starring Vincent Price (1958).
BLOODY PIT OF HORROR: A group of models stumble into an apparently abandoned castle, looking for a suitably gothic setting for a photo shoot. Their presence alerts an unhinged actor who lives out his madness in the castle as the self-proclaimed reincarnation of the Crimson Executioner.
THE DEVIL'S MESSENGER: In this patched-together compilation from an obscure TV show called 13 DEMON STREET, Lon Chaney, Jr., plays the Devil, who sends a henchman to Earth to blow everyone to kingdom come with a 500-megaton bomb.
THE HEAD: A mad doctor uses a serum invented to keep body parts alive on the decapitated head of the man who invented the serum.
HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL: Vincent Price has one of his juiciest roles in this haunted-house thriller as millionaire playboy Frederick Loren, who invites five guests out to a genuine haunted house, offering them each $10,000 if they spend the night. Elisha Cook, Jr., plays one of the guests, a nervous alcoholic who has been in the house before and witnessed some terrible things. Mr. Loren's beautiful but treacherous wife (Carol Ohmart) is also present--and might be out to kill Frederick during the course of the evening; then again, he might be out to kill her. Severed heads, a skeleton, an acid vat, ghostly screams, and a noose that creeps around on its own and strangles unsuspecting victims are just some of the treats in a film that has been spooking delighted audiences on late-night TV for decades. Producer-director William Castle (THE TINGLER) claimed that HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL was filmed in a process called Emergo, which meant that at a key moment a glow-in-the-dark skeleton on a wire was rigged to sail over the audience's heads. The skeleton is long since gone, but the goofy thrills remain in this classic tale, from a script by Robb White.
