BRUCE G. HALLENBECK: British Cult Cinema: The AMICUS ANTHOLOGY: Order Here:

In 1965, the newly-formed Amicus Productions of filmmaking duo Max J Rosenberg and Milton Subotsky burst onto the British fantasy scene with Dr Terror’s House of Horrors, an anthology film featuring five tales of suspense and the supernatural. The success of Dr Terror encouraged the partners to produce more of the same and in the years that followed, Torture Garden, The House That Dripped Blood, Tales From the Crypt and others forever associated the name of Amicus with the anthology horror film.

The Amicus Anthology is an in-depth look at a body of films which were unique in the annals of fantasy cinema and featured not only the talents of horror icons Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee but those of dozens of the most famous names on the British screen in the 1960s and ’70s.

240pp plus 8pp in colour.

Fully illustrated throughout.
