Ten things I learned from The Haunted Palace

 

1963

1-Inheriting a castle from a nutbar isn’t a good thing.

2-If people of a town tell you to leave as soon as you arrive maybe you should consider it.

3-A painting of a crazy ancestor is likely not a good thing to keep around.

4-Mutated townspeople should further emphasize that get out of town thing.

5-If a whacked out looking servant (Lon Chaney Jr.) shows up with a flimsy reason as to why he’s there don’t believe him.

6-If your husband’s hair gets more grey suddenly and he starts acting like a different person then he’s likely possessed by his evil ancestor.

7-If townspeople start dying horrible deaths then it’s probably due to the evil at the castle.

8-Summoning demons from hell = no darn good for anyone involved.

9-If you are evil and up to bad things you should at least hire some outdoor guards to keep irate townies away.

10-When all else fails burn down the evil building!

 

This is a Lovecraft story that American International tried to pass off as a Poe film. Either way it’s a darn good one with solid performances, fantastic sets and a strong enough story.

I have watched far too many horror and sc-fi shows in my life. Now I feel the need to share this wealth of knowledge and make others suffer.
