dr. terror's house of horrors

This week, we’re offering something a little extra – our Halloween special, Alcoholloween, where we bring in All Hallow’s Eve with a special horrifying drinking game!

Today, we’re taking a dip into the past with 1965’s portmanteau horror film Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors, starring Hammer horror staples Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. During a fateful train ride, five strangers (including Lee and a young Donald Sutherland) meet Dr. Schreck (Cushing), a mysterious old man who tells their fate through five spooky vignettes. Pull up some evil spirits and catch this creepy, atmospheric gem streaming on Netflix!
