New! Obscure Horrors on DVD

Here are two new releases of films most of us have never heard of (I hadn't!). Weird films from the early 1960s...both surreal in their own way. A horror house of madness and a bizarre docu-melodrama with Basil Rathbone...

HOUSE OF DREAMS (1963) - DVD
A writer is haunted by dreams of a strange old house he visited once in his youth. The dreams become more vivid as his life begins to fall apart around him. Realizing his misfortunes and the old house must be connected, he visits it for the first time in years. What he finds there will make him question his already decaying sanity...

House of Dreams is one of the most unusual products of the early 60s drive-in horror era. This obscure, almost completely forgotten feature is more like an avant-garde film than a haunted house AIP picture.

TWO BEFORE ZERO (1962) - DVD
Famed film historian Peter Cowie once called it "quite one of the oddest films I have ever seen." TWO BEFORE ZERO is a truly bizarre docudrama that could have only been made during the height of the Cold War. On a darkened stage, two figures – one an intimidating black-robed demagogue portrayed by Basil Rathbone, the other an innocent beauty in a diaphanous gown played by Mary Murphy.

Get these two strange film, got to our New DVD Department here at Creepy Classics and get your copies...if you dare!
