When you’re talking about British horror films of the ’70s, while Hammer was on their way out as they were slowly losing their audiences to more modern-day horrors, along comes Pete Walker. While he didn’t make a ton of horror films, the ones he did, really make an impact. If you’re not familiar with Mr. Walker and his movies, now is your chance to wet your whistle to (hopefully) make you seek out these films, and his others.
In this episode, we discuss House of Whipcord (1974), Frightmare (1974), and House of Mortal Sin aka The Confessional (1976).
And if you need any other reason to check out his films, then it would be because of Sheila Keith, who appears in all three of these films we discuss. She is a real gem in the horror genre!
