Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Bloodbath at the House of Death (1983)

Directed by:
Ray Cameron

Horror parody that mixes England's "carry on" style of humor with a standard horror plot. Some paranormal researchers go to "Headstone Manor" to investigate a series of occult related murders. Third-billed guest star Vincent Price has a minor role as the head of the Satanic cult. One man is flushed down a toilet, plus there's death by mole (not the animal), a killer teddy bear and an amusingly overdone opening sequence (count the dead bodies). I've seen this, but it was too long ago to write a detailed review for it so I'll try to give it a rewatch sometime.

Score: Needs a rewatch.
