Doctor Blood's Coffin (1961)

Notes: 10/31/10
British mystery thriller. Strange disappearances in town.
The nurse looks so old.
Peter? (Kieron Moore) Love the accent.
Very atmospheric. Creepy.
Love story on top of it with old nurse lady.
Peter is kind of attractive. Porn star attractive.
Sexual tension in the car. Uncomfortable and hot.
The music is pretty suspenseful. Maybe overwrought?
Umm whoa! Beating heart. Gross.
Very Hammer-inspired.

Review: C+
I had fun watching this one for Halloween. I think I had more fun taking notes than I did watching the movie. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it turned out to be a pretty decent blend of Hammer influence and Psycho's psychology. Atmospheric and creepy with an intriguingly creepy central character. Not all that memorable, but worth a look if you like your British crazy and frightened.
