Terror

3

A lesson for anyone about to burn any witches

As the Hammer formula grew creaky, a new wave of more explicit Brit-horrors broke in the ’70s, including this effort from Norman J. Warren.

The plot involves a curse affecting the few remaining ancestors of a royal lineage (Carolyn Courage and John ‘uncle of Christopher’ Nolan), but this flimsy backstory serves merely as an excuse for some Argento-esque murders.

It’s no Suspiria, but as a by-numbers slasher with playfully meta elements (in one scene a character mistakes paint for blood), Terror's an enjoyable romp for aficionados.
