Movie Info

The elegant Lili Palmer plunges enthusiastically into the spooky spirit of the Spanish chiller The House That Screamed (La Residencia). Palmer plays the headmistress of an exclusive French girl's school, where repressive rules are the order of the day. The discipline and the curriculum are "killers" only in the figurative sense; however, a genuine killer is rapidly decimating the student body. The culprit is Palmer's son Luis (John Moulder Brown), who is secretly using the various body parts of his victims to create the Perfect Woman. Gruesome, true, but well done.

    The House That Screamed was nothing special that I'd watch again but it is something I'd tell somebody to go see if they asked what I thought especially if they didn't have to pay to watch it.I did like that the movie kept me in suspense wondering who the killer was (What a suprise) all the way through with a (Best part of the movie) shocking ending I did NOT see coming at all.

    Murders at a boarding school for wayward, sexually repressed girls. Though set in France and Spanish in origin, it's very much in the Italian giallo style; slow moving but well made, with some very stylish touches. Giallo fanatics will want to bump that star rating up a notch or two.

    Lesbianism, sexual repression, an Oedipal relationship between the headmistress and her son...and bloody murder! ! Weird, but well done.
