HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM (1959)


1h 33min | Horror

1959 UK
Direction: Arthur Crabtree
Writers: Herman Cohen (original story), Aben Kandel (original story)
Actors: Michael Gough, June Cunningham, Graham Curnow

Frustrated thriller writer Edmond Bancroft (Michael Gough) owns a private “black museum” of torture instruments. He hypnotises his assistant Rick (Graham Curnow) to commit increasingly horrific crimes for Bancroft to write about.

It was the first film in what film critic David Pirie dubbed Anglo-Amalgamated’s “Sadian trilogy” (the other two being Circus of Horrors and Peeping Tom), with an emphasis on sadism, cruelty and violence (with sexual undertones), in contrast to the supernatural horror of the Hammer films of the same era.
