The Dungeon of Harrow (1962)

With my time in Pennsylvania winding down, I decided to jump back into the Pure Terror Collection for something to watch. My selection for the evening is The Dungeon of Harrow from 1962.

Plot/ An evil, sadistic count lives in a waterfront castle with his insane family members. One day the survivor of a shipwreck washes ashore near the castle and finds himself a captive there.

This low budget entry had a decent idea and storyline. Unfortunately, having such a low budget prevented that initial vision to come to fruition. The acting is up-and-down, the soundtrack does not work and there is truly a lack of emotion or atmosphere throughout. Yes, there are a couple of genuine creepy moments, but those are few and far between.  In the end, if you like late night horror-show flicks full of schlock check it out, but if you do, pick it up as part of a cheap box set…

  1. Yeah... judging from this movie, Pat Boyette made the right choice when he gave up filmmaking in favor of drawing comic books.
