House of Mystery

Vernon Sewell (1961)

A Certificate


Our Score
Not to be confused with Bela Lugosi's 1942 thriller (also known as Night Monster), this is a neat little spine-tingler from writer/director Vernon Sewell, who was something of a dab hand at summoning up demons from beyond, whether benign as in The Ghosts of Berkeley Square or downright menacing as in The Blood Beast Terror. Some aficionados would insist that if it ain't Hammer it ain't horror, but there are plenty of uneasy moments in this haunting story, in which a couple of newlyweds learn the grim secret of their dream house from the resident spook himself.
