Dorothy Yates (Sheila Keith), along with her husband Edmund (Rupert Davies), have just been released from a mental institution after serving an eighteen-year sentence for murder and cannibalism. But have they been cured? Despite a fresh start in an isolated country house, it would appear that bloodlust has no cure. As victims keep piling up, daughter Jackie tries to keep it all quiet and shield their impressionable younger daughter Debbie from the family's true nature. But the family's psychological ties run so deep that secrets are impossible to keep and fate is impossible to escape. From British horror specialist Pete Walker (House Of Whipcord, The Confessional), Frightmare is a disturbing classic and a must-have for any horror fan.
After spending nearly twenty years in jail for a series of cannibalistic murders, Dorothy Yates and her husband Edmund, who was jailed for his attempted cover-up of his wife's ghoulish tastes, are apparently cured and released back into society. Their two daughters are haunted by the fiendish deeds of their ghastly parents, and soon the killings begin again. But is it Dorothy this time, or someone else'
