Movie Info

This British horror spoof was conceived as a star vehicle for then-popular TV comedian Kenny Everett, who plays an occult scientist whose team of paranormal researchers are measuring psychic disturbances at a rural English estate called "Headstone Manor." Once the site of a bloody massacre, the house is haunted by the very real presence of a moronic devil-worshipping coven and their exasperated leader, "The Sinister Man" (Vincent Price, who seems to enjoy serving up the ham). The inept Satanists are determined to prevent the so-called psychic experts from completing their task. Despite a few clever gags and some very funny asides from the mugging Price, viewers expecting a Monty Python-style satire of horror films will be rather disappointed. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Bloodbath at the House of Death

British comedy horror. I enjoyed this more than more well-known films of this genre from England (e.g. The Old Dark House (1963) or even Comedy of Terrors). Its more of a American-type spoof with clever British type humor (done better than Carry On Screaming). A group of scientists investigate radioactivity around the site of a mass murder years prior. Some Satanic priests (who act much like a masonic-type organization with power in local politics) dont take kindly to the scientists presence and use their evil powers to kill them. Well, I dont want to spoil the end, but a nice ridiculous twist to complete the film! Vincent Price plays the High Priest. Well worth a view!

This movie wasn't as good as I expected. It tries, poorly, to spoof other horror movies, while having it's own story, which isn't very good anyway. The only good actor is Price, who doesn't get enough screen time. There are a couple of funny scenes, most of which have Price. Overall, it's just okay.
