Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)
97 min.
Directed by Freddie Francis.
With Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Donald Sutherland, Roy Castle, Jennifer Jayne, Michael Gough, Ann Bell, Max Adrian, Neil McCallum, Ursula Howells.
Five strangers board a train and encounter the darkly mysterious Dr. Schreck (Cushing) who tells each individual's future via tarot readings.

An ancient werewolf finally sees his bloody day of ancestral revenge...

An odd species of vine plant aims to become unstoppable...at any cost

A jazz musician samples a voodoo tune without permission...and pays the deadly price for it!

An art critic (Lee) silences the painter who humiliated him...but finds he's sacrificed his own 'vision' in the process.

A man (Sutherland) discovers his wife is a vampire...and dutifully puts an end to her messin' around.

Enjoyable performances highlight this well conceived Amicus anthology (Cushing delights as the creepy harbinger of doom). Great ending.
