House of Horrors 1946 Review
House of Horrors is a 1946 horror film directed by Jean Yarbrough and starring Rondo Hatton, Virginia Grey, and Robert Lowery.
The film follows a struggling artist who becomes embroiled in a series of murders committed by a disfigured and vengeful man named “The Creeper,” whom the artist had previously saved from drowning.
Rondo Hatton delivers a standout performance as The Creeper, with his unique appearance and physicality adding to the film’s eerie atmosphere.
The film also features strong supporting performances from Grey and Lowery.
One interesting fact is that House of Horrors was produced by Universal Pictures as a showcase for Hatton, who had gained a following for his appearances in previous films as “The Creeper.”
Sadly, Hatton would pass away shortly after the film’s release due to complications from acromegaly, the condition that had caused his unique appearance.
Overall, House of Horrors is a solid entry in the classic horror genre, with its atmospheric cinematography and memorable performances making it a must-see for fans of the era.
