Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)

Directors: Freddie Francis
Starring: Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Donald Sutherland

Genre: Horror

"Episodic horror film about a strange, fortune-telling doctor who tells five train passengers their (ill-fated) destinies. As a result, instead of reaching their destinations, each passenger begins a new journey, filled with terror, suspense, and the unknown..."

My oppinion:
I prefer knowing as little as possible about the films before seeing them. I knew Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee starred in this one, but I was surprised to see Donald Sutherland in it. All these three did a nice acting performance in this, but I especially liked Cushing even though he didn't have that much time on screen. He really is a horror legend. This is a pretty fun and cheezy flick. Some of the 5 peoples stories are better then others. The stories involve werewolves, vampires, voodoo, intelligent plants(..) and a disembodied hand on a mission to kill. My favourites were the intelligent plants and the disembodied hand story, but the werewolf story was also quite nice. The Voodoo story wasn't too good though in my opinion. This is not a very violent or graphic horror and it's not among the most intelligent movie, but it is entertaining, and that's enough for me.

My rating:
