The Horror of It All is a 1964 British comedy horror film executive produced by Robert L. Lippert (WitchcraftThe Earth Dies Screaming; The Curse of the Fly) and directed by Terence Fisher from a screenplay by Ray Russell. It stars American pop singer Pat BooneErica Rogers, Dennis PriceAndree Melly (The Brides of Dracula)Valentine Dyall, Jack Bligh (Night of the Big Heat), Archie Duncan (X: The Unknown), Erik Chitty (Lust for a Vampire; The Vault of Horror), Oswald Laurence.

In the USA, the film was released on a double-bill with another Lippert production, Witchcraft.


“At its best, The Horror of It All has an akilter kinkiness; mostly it is just silly freneticism. The film climaxes with a ridiculously contrived double twist ending. Pat Boone sings the title song in the middle of the film. The Horror of It All is usually an embarrassing black mark that is quickly passed over by those who raised Terence Fisher to cult status in the 1970s.” Moria

” … an ‘old dark house’ sort of horror/comedy that fails, in the main, because the comedy is lightweight at best and struggles to find a humorous pace (Uncle Percival (Jack Bligh) aside.” Taliesin Meets the Vampires




Choice dialogue:

“Natalie drinks very little… except at night!”
