HORROR (1963) pt.1/10 ~ Gerard Tichy, Leo Anchoriz, Ombretta Colli, Albe...

HORROR" (1963)! Based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe and released in the U.S. under the title THE BLANCHEVILLE MONSTER, this film doesnt feature Barbara Steele, Arturo Dominici, Ivo Garrani, or even a monster in the conventional sense. However, it does feature uncredited special effects by the Maestro, Mario Bava! With Genuinely Eerie Sets, a Vincent Price double, a castle, and a cadre of handsome Italian Euro-babes in clingy neglegees, pretty much all the prerequisites are met for a late-night horror hour of pure escapism ala the old days when Creature Features and Chiller Theater ruled!

Critics of this b/w classic describe it as a hybrid of the styles of Roger Corman and Mario Bava--and that may be accurate, especially with regards to its title(s)--which viewers will notice includes both HORROR (Bava-esque) and THE BLANCHEVILLE MONSTER (Corman-esque) in the opening sequence!
