Leave this house now!   Peggy (Sian Barbara Allen, Billy Two Hats) never should have taken the housekeeping job at the Elliot Estate.  She knows this now that its deadly mysteries have been unearthed.  Of course, it might be too late for her, but it is not too late for us.  You’ve been ...

Nothing But Trouble: Shout Select (1991)

Through the Fire (1988) Vinegar Syndrome Exclusive

Black magic!  Like in Marilyn's books!  This demon wants a lifeless body to control!

Girls' School Screamers (1986) Vinegar Syndrome Exclusive

“Kiss me, Tyler!” Alright, alright, so Girls School Screamers might be on the rather cheap end of Z-grade budget horror, but from the very beginning (in which a ghost in a wedding with worms and maggots dangling from her face scares a little boy so badly he runs from the house), to its ...
