    4. The legend is that Count Valdemar will take his revenge on the last of the Dawson family, and by placing said last Dawson in Valdemar's coffin, Valdemar will be restored back to his human form.

    5. I think he sees a poster for Dr Terror's House of Horrors on the wall.
    You my friend are incredible. Just no stumping you. You put me in the shade. I like all of the Amicus anthos. They each have at least one silly segment but make up for it with three good ones. I find with all good cimema that I can watch these anthos over and over and still enjoy them.

    Torture Garden

    1. What is the character name of the figure who holds the shears?

    2. Who, at the film's end, grabs the shears and appears to kill Diablo with them? (actor name)

    3. Whose short stories were the segments based on?

    4. In the first segment, what kind of animal plays a big part?

    5. In the segment featuring the piano, of whom does the piano become jealous? (actor or character name)

    Cat. Isnt it based on Poes Black Cat?

    Pass on name. She played a journalist after a story on John Standing's character.

    1. She was Atropos, one of the three Greek goddesses of destiny and fate.

    2. Michael Ripper.

    3. Robert Bloch.

    4. Yes, a cat. Not really based on Poe, though.

    5. It was Barbara Ewing.

    That was a miserable effort.

    House That Dripped Blood:

    Who plays the estate agent in the lead in.

    What was WAXWORDS derived from.

    Why does the the wax model attract the two men.

    Philip Grayson was played by whom.

    Freddie Francis was to direct HTDB why did he not.

    good luck.

    1. John Bryans. He played A.J. Stoker...subtle or what?

    2. It was based on a short story by Robert Bloch, author of Psycho. Think it was published in Weird Tales, though not certain of that.

    3. It bears the likeness of a girl they both were smitten with many years before.

    4. The great Peter Cushing.

    5. I think he was unavailable due to other commitments.

    The House that Dripped Blood is a great title, but I don't think the segments quite live up to it. For me, the highlight is Sweets to the Sweet. I think it was an error to end with The Cloak, a rather humourous tale, but since the detective was investigating the disappearance of Paul Henderson, it had to be the last.

    Trivia: Carleton Hobbs, who played the doctor in Sweets to the Sweet, was Sherlock Holmes on the radio for many years for the BBC.

    Your knowledge of Hammer/Amicus film is boundless staffslad. I sure picked an apt quiz for you. You smack my bum every time I too enjoyed SFTS best and agree the The Cloak was a poor way to finish.

    Sorry to say it was not the great Cush mate and why was Francis not available?
