Having already terrified audiences across the globe with Psycho, author Robert Bloch adapted three of his short stories for the Amicus chiller The House That Dripped Blood. This scary — and immensely entertaining — anthology details the horrific history of the title house and those who lived (and died) there. Among the stories: A writer’s imagination has deadly consequences, a wax figure holds a sinister secret, a young girl learns voodoo, and an actor starts “living” the role of a vampire.
Here’s the film’s trailer:
