The House of Seven Corpses (1974)

October Challenge: Day 7

Woke up to a bright and crisp day today, so I made some breakfast, coffee and started working on a puzzle under the lovely Saturday morning light.

Damn fine way to start a day!

I have wine tasting and dinner plans later, so while taking a short break from sorting puzzle pieces, I did a little searching for what horror movie to watch under such pleasent circumstances.

That's when I found: The House of Seven Corpses. Winner winner, chicken dinner.

I think I've seen this film around town a couple times - looks a little campy, perhaps classically cheesy, but it also looked like it would pair well with my puzzle time...

Indeed it did!

Here we have a movie that is being filmed about occult murders - in a mansion that has already seen: Occult Murders!

This wasn't going to end well for anyone, especially when the Tibetan Book of the Dead was discovered.

Oh this was a delightful pick for the day. Yes, although campy and classically cheesy, it was also rather original. Dated and groan-worthy at times (hello ladies, you'll find nothing new here), this was still a good fit for something I paid attention to 75% of the time.

Odd, simple, entertaining and reliable, this is a good horror show for a peaceful Saturday morning while working on a puzzle, or a fun beer and pizza night with the crew. Pairs with comfort food, coffee, booze, and pajamas.

I watched this film on Amazon Prime or use the Find It. Watch It. links on Horror Habit's side bar to locate where else you can find this vintage film.
