The Skull (1965)

Streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime | imdb | trailer

Here’s an entertaining Technicolor British horror film starring Peter Cushing (also with Anomalous Cinema favorites Patrick Magee and Christopher Lee). Those facts alone don’t sell you on this? Well, it is not just any old possessed skull. It’s the former head of… the Marquis de Sade himself (insert thunder sound effect here)! In spite of what the poster and trailer want you to think, this is slow, suspenseful horror. Know that going in and you’ll probably enjoy it.

Available on Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
