HAUNTED HOUSE OF HORROR (aka THE DARK) 1969
U.K. film. It's Scooby-Doo meets Blow Up
! Frankie Avalon looking like he just stepped out of a Beach Party movie and into Swinging London finds himself in a haunted house with a mysterious murderer and bloody gore!
Eight very mod-looking twenty-somethings leave a Carnaby St. party and hold a séance in an old house where a fatal knifing befalls one of the swingers. Frankie takes charge and directs the others to hide the body and lie to the police about the "missing" person. The main suspect seems to be an older married man angry that his affair with one of the hot looking birds has been ended.
Look for a scene showing the Beatle's legendary shop, "Apple Boutique" with its psychedelic mural. Also background rock music by The Pretty Things. Starring 60s pop star Mark Wynter, Frankie Avalon, Jill Haworth, Dennis Price, George Sewell, Gina Warwick, Carol Dilworth, Julian Barnes, Veronica Doran, Robin Stewart. Haunted House of Horror!
