February 4, 1967 Schedule

On Saturday Night, February 4TH in 1967 at 11:15PM, Bob Wilkins showed Two Gems: "Terror In The Crypt"(1964)AKA "Crypt Of The Vampire" and "House On Haunted Hill"(1959). The first feature: "Count Karnstein sends for a doctor to help his sick daughter, Laura. Her nurse believes she's possessed by the spirit of a dead ancester, Carmilla". This movie stars Christopher Lee and is available on DVD courtesy of Retromedia/Image. It is worth owning. The second feature: "Five diverse people are invited to a haunted house party. They are offered $10,000 each by an eccentric millionaire and his wife to spend the night in a house with a murderous past". This movie stars Vincent Price. It was remade by Warner Bros./Dark Castle Films 4o years later in 1999. The original "House On Haunted Hill" is currently in the public domain and is offered by MANY DVD COMPANIES! The best available is on Warner Home Video in both letterbox and open matte. The next best is offered by both Roan Group (as a double feature with "The Bat") and 20TH Century Fox who offers the open matte version in both Black & White and Colorized. Avoid the following DVD Company versions of "House On Haunted Hill": "Diamond", "Cheezy Flicks", "Goodtimes", "Alpha", "Platinum", "Brentwood", "Madacy", "Tritron", and "Front Row", as well as many more that I have not mentioned.
