House That Screamed (1969)
It did a good job as far as cinematography, lighting, setting and wardrobe goes because it is an effective period piece. It is sort of a clash between the Hammer Studios, Gothic horror and an Italian giallo with elements of a women in prison movie. We have a straight razor killer running around but he only kills two people on screen. Then we have a Pieces style ending when we learn that the killer is putting together his dream girl with the best body parts from each girl. The ending is stupid and the whole movie is a giant waste of time. Some how this thing got great reviews but for me this house just had me screaming for the end credits. Boring!
