A great bit of film news for you here on Blazing Minds, with the news that classic horror parody, The House in Nightmare Park is getting a release of DVD.
Comedy legend Frankie Howerd stars as the victim of sinister shenanigans in this wacky parody of seventies British horror films. From the director of Demons of the Mind and starring Hugh Burden and Oscar winner Ray Milland, THE HOUSE IN NIGHTMARE PARK is finally available in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited cinema aspect ratio. Own this essential piece of cult UK cinema on 8 April 2013.
Being a classic film fan myself this is going to be a must for me to get my hands on as I’m not only a fan of the genre, but I also grew up watching the funny films and TV series from Frankie Howerd, his innuendo wit always had me in fits and giggles.
The House in Nightmare Park was originally released in 1973 and in the US in 1977, the film shows of the comedic talents of Frankie Howerd and the sinister side of Ray Milland, made a time when British Cinema was at a point of audiences enjoying our mad cap British sense of humour.
At the time The House in Nightmare Park had a remarkable cast that almost all cinema goers knew and was probably one the last few movies of hits kind. Sad really that we don’t get funny films like this any more.
