|Cushing is top notch in this effective British chiller about a former clergyman who keeps a secret possession locked up in the attic...his crazed flesh-hungry son who feeds upon the visitors!
This moody, atmospheric horror has a strong plotline and solid production values, Hammer vets Cushing and Carlson (1968's Dracula Has Risen from the Grave) shine in this non-Hammer mid '70s frightride.
Hurt is equally superb as the rough-edged groundskeeper who aids Cushing and the Ghoul's keeper (Bastedo) in their evil machinations.
From Tyburn Films also came other horrors: the grand guignol entry Persecution (1973) starring Lana Turner as well as Legend of the Werewolf (1975).
This one's also known as The Thing in the Attic.
