When Napoleonic cavalry soldier Lt. Andre Duvalier (Jack Nicholson) becomes estranged from his unit, he comes upon a mysterious woman named Helene (Sandra Knight) along the coast of Germany. The lieutenant is immediately taken with Helene but quickly becomes suspicious of her actions. It seems as if she is leading him into deadly traps: the powerful ocean's tide and pits of quicksand. Things take an even stranger turn when Duvalier seeks refuge at a nearby castle maintained by a baron (Boris Karloff), and Helene unexpectedly appears there. The baron is convinced that Helene is the ghost of his long-departed wife Ilsa, but the lieutenant believes Helene is under a hypnotic spell cast by an old witch that is scheming against the baron—slowly driving him to the brink of madness in an act of ruthless revenge…
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
Brother and sister Johnny (Russell Streiner) and Barbara (Judith O'Dea) travel to a remote town in Pennsylvania to visit the gravesite of their deceased father. But the dreaded trip turns into a terrifying nightmare when a flesh-eating zombie attacks the pair, killing Johnny. Barbara escapes and runs to the first residence she sees—a lone farmhouse where a group of people has taken refuge against the monsters. But their hiding place isn't safe for long. When darkness falls, a mass of ravenous zombies descends upon the house, and by the dawning of the next day, all that's left is a sole survivor.
HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL
Shock Theatre veteran Vincent Price stars in this cult classic as Frederick Loren, a baleful tycoon who owns an ominous mental institution-turned-mansion. Loren throws a party that promises to be a hauntingly good time but turns into a murderous disaster. With his foes in attendance, Loren hands out party favors in the form of miniature wooden coffins that contain handguns. The ominous host has a few scary tricks up his sleeve that he hopes will provoke his guests into using their weapons, but it turns out that his calculating wife and her lover have some plans of their own. All of the devious scheming and backstabbing of the guests, mixed in with the house's own malevolent supernatural element, make for one terrifying, white-knuckled fright night.
THE SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA
Christopher Lee made one of his final appearances on the big screen as the malevolent Count with a lust for blood, in The Satanic Rites of Dracula. In this dark and diabolical tale, Count Dracula fronts a satanic cult that uses a research establishment and real estate business as a cover for its dastardly deeds in 1970s London. The Count and his followers develop a deadly strain of the bubonic plague, plotting to release it into the unsuspecting city streets. With the entire human race in jeopardy, the dutiful Dr. Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) and Inspector Murray (Michael Coles) set out to stop the evil Count and his minions from carrying out their devilish plan.
THE DEVIL BAT
When a brilliant scientist, Dr. Paul Carruthers (Bela Lugosi), develops an ingenious product and is cheated out of his fair share of the profits by his greedy partners, Roy Heath (John Ellis) and Don Morton (Gene O'Donnell), Carruthers decides to use his brain rather than brawn to get vengeance. The scientist turns his laboratory of science into one of doom as he creates a giant race of bats that turn into ripping and shredding beasts of fury when they catch wind of a particular scent that Carruthers puts into a special cologne and aftershave. Now armed with his killing machines, the good-scientist-gone-bad has the power to kill at will with his mutant bats doing his bidding. The families of Carruthers' partners are his first targets, but Heath and Morton's time is going to come. And when it does—it won't be pretty…
The setting of this murder mystery is a proverbial old, dark, and creepy mansion leased for the summer by Cornelia Van Gorder (Agnes Moorehead), an eccentric mystery writer who finds inspiration for her novels in her eerie surroundings. But soon after Cornelia moves in, it seems as if one of her mysteries has sprung to life when a strange prowler, who is later dubbed The Bat, breaks into the mansion clad in a fedora, mask, and gloves outfitted with razor-sharp metal claws. The Bat terrorizes Cornelia and her maid and then commits a gruesome act of murder. The frightened novelist, refusing to fall victim to the masked marauder, resolutely sets out to expose the killer's true identity and get to the bottom of the mystery by turning the tables on the vile villain.
