Mick Garris on

The House that Screamed

Released 1971
Distributor AIP

One of the year’s big hits in its original Spanish 70mm version, but in America it was just another drive-in horror dualler for AIP. Even in its GP-rated cut there’s a lot of creepy eroticism on view, and the girls’ school setting provides lots of pulchritude, if not much nudity.
