WAXWORKS DR DEATH DOCUMENTARY AND DEATH BY WEDDING CAKE!


#HORRIBLEDEATHWEDNESDAYS: Philip Grayson (Peter Cushing) meeting his end at the hands of the Waxworks Proprietor (Wolfe Morris) ..... This is a wonderful example of Peter's talent of expressing terror . . .


PART THREE OF OUR The AMICUS FILMS of PETER CUSHING features, WAXWORKS Peter Cushing's story in THE HOUSED THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, with GALLERY RIGHT HERE!

 
FUN FACT: Wolfe Morris co-starred with Peter Cushing in an Hammer film years earlier do you know the TITLE of that film and the NAME OF THE ROLE part Wolfe Morris played?
ANSWER LATER


#HORRIBLEDEATHWEDNESDAY! From the moment DR DEATH's face appears, between those elevator doors...you just know, this ain't going to end well.... A nice touch though! I just love how in Amicus films, MADHOUSE, the good doctor pops up anywhere and everywhere... just like, here! When the film does reveal just WHO is behind that mask, it makes Dr DEATH's actions, all the more interesting, I thought. Mind you, I might be on my own here...but I NEVER guessed who was behind that mask, until the reveal....

ABOVE: PETER CUSHING and VINCENT PRICE in AMICUS FILMS 'MADHOUSE' is covered in detail in Donald Fearney's 'THE AMICUS VAULT OF HORRORS' documentary PART FOUR, which you'll find above! ALL FOUR other PARTS CAN BE FOUND at our PCAS YOUTUBE CHANNEL HERE!


#HORRORIBLEDEATHWEDNESDAY!  Death By Wedding Cake, must be one of the oddest of demises in the Amicus films canon. Well, I know it was the knife, and the strange hex that was placed on Ian Bannen's lying Christopher Lowe in this weird little tale 'An Act of Kindness' in 'From Beyond the Grave' (1974). 


A FILM THAT is certainly in the top three of many a Cushing Fan's listings. This death seems all the more sad, when you consider that all Lowe wanted was reputation, respect and a loving wife. Poor guy must have blinkers on, the day Donald and his 'mad as a tea pot' daughter, stepped into his life...Cake, anyone?
