Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984)

Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984)

Directed by: Ray Cameron

Starring: Kenny Everett, Vincent Price, Pamela Stephenson

I’ll be honest with you, I don’t really remember this movie. I remember it was a stupid horror-comedy and it had a depressing cameo in it by Vincent Price as “The Sinister Man”, but that’s about it. I sure as fuck ain’t gonna watch it again, though, so I’m writing this one paragraph about it, and if you got a problem with that, then… stop… caring. Why are you caring about this? Quit it.

    I can help.

    If memory serves, this was about a bunch of dry, unfunny English couples going to a big country house for… some reason. Each of them were fat, bland, suffering from intense speech impediments or some combination thereof.

    Once there they had dinner for about 25 scenes, then Vincent Price showed up and made doubles of all the people in the house, which were, after about 25 walking scenes, revealed to be doubles (despite the fact that they were obviously doubles all the time). Some scientists used a cardboard computer to identify ghosts, then everyone died. Vincent Price cashed his check. The end.

    Two things worth note- this movie features Pamela Stephenson, Billy Connoly’s wife, as a frizzy haired ultra-bitch who talks like she has a mouth full of popsicle sticks. As unfortunate as that sounds, she was probably the best character, in that there were two things you can remember about her.

    The other thing is that this is a UK horror parody from 1984, which means the films it’s lampooning are a little strange. When you think horror parody you think, well, slasher films, not Amityville horror or Rosemary’s Baby. The references to those films are kind of oblique, but there’s one that’s blunt as hell- for some reason the entire thing ends with a spoof of E.T. that makes ZERO sense.

    There.
