Featuring Boris Karloff in two of his most horrifying roles The Haunted Strangler and Corridors of Blood, and two classic sci-fi treats from the atomic age.

For True Fright try: Diabolique

An acknowledged influence on Psycho, Henri-Georges Clouzot’s horror classic is the story of a sadistic headmaster who brutalizes his fragile wife and his headstrong mistress. The two women murder him and dump his body in a swimming pool; when the pool is drained, no corpse is found.
