Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984)

Written by Ray Cameron and Barry Cryer, and directed by Cameron, Bloodbath at the House of Death was a comedy horror that set out to spoof the likes of The Amityville Horror.

The film is based at Headstone Manor where a number of unusual events have taken place throughout the years. As the film begins we are in 1975 where a businessman’s weekend retreat and girls’ summer camp are taking place. These events are tragically cut short following eighteen deaths at the hands of satanic monks who broke in and attacked everyone!

The film then flashes forwards to 1983 where we meet Doctor Lucas Mandeville (Kenny Everett) and Doctor Barbara Coyle (Pamela Stephenson) who are sent to investigate radioactive readings in the area that have been traced to Headstone Manor, now known by locals as the House of Death!

Madeville, Coyle and some other scientists set up their equipment in Headstone Manor and begin their investigation. Nearby though, unknown to our scientific researchers, the Sinister Man (Vincent Price) – a 700-year-old Satanic priest – is preparing a satanic rite in the nearby woods to purge the house of its unwanted guests.

This results in many a supernatural occurrence…or does it?
