TITLE: THE GHOUL / I DONíT WANT TO BE BORN
FORMAT: British Quad (30 x 40 inches)
STARS: Stars: Peter Cushing, John Hurt, Alexandra Bastedo, Veronica Carlson,Joan Collins, Eileen Atkins, Ralph Bates,Donald Pleasence, Caroline Munro. DIRECTOR: Freddie Francis, Peter Sasdy.
NOTES: This combo is a veritable whoís who of British HORROR. The Ghoul is a minor classic of the mad relative in the locked room genre . It was produced by Tyburn Films - one of the British Horror Companies that sprang up in response to Hammer Studio's worldwide Gothic horror movie success. This one should be of immediate interest to anyone who likes those films as it stars Hammer veteran Peter Cushing, Hammer starlet Veronica Carlson and is written and directed by Hammer stalwarts Anthony Hinds and Freddie Francis, who also directed it. Peter Cushing plays the man with a secret and his crazed, cannibalistic son provided an early film role for John Hurt. Double-bill with I Donít Want To Be Born, a British horror film from the Rank Organisation, with a twist on another favourite horror premise Ė the demonic baby. How can you not love Joan Collins as the proud mum of a baby boy possessed by the vengeful spirit of a dwarf she once spurned.
CONDITION: Grade A. Pinholes (the one at top left corner is a little enlarged). Folded, as issued.
