Ealing comedy-horror The House in Nightmare Park on DVD in April

12 March 2013

Foster Twelvetrees is a struggling tragedian who scrapes a living by giving hammy performances from the classics. He can hardly believe his luck when he’s invited to give a dramatic reading at the country home of a well-off family. But joy soon turns to outraged horror when he discovers dead bodies, foul intentions, lots of snakes and a madwoman in the attic. Can he uncover the hidden family secret before he comes to a terrible end..?

Comedy legend Frankie Howerd stars as the victim of sinister shenanigans in this wacky parody of seventies British horror films. Directed by Peter Sykes, the man behind Demons of the Mind and To the Devil a Daughter, and starring Hugh Burden and Oscar winner Ray Milland, The House in Nightmare Park (1973) will finally be made available on DVD in April with a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited cinema aspect ratio.

The House in Nightmare Park will be released for the first time on UK DVD on 8th April 2013 by Network Distributing at the RRP of just £9.99.eaturing

Featuring a full frame 1.75:1, as-filmed version of the main feature, restored from the original film elements, the disc will also have these extras:

  • Music-only audio track

  • Original theatrical trailer

  • TV spot (mute)

  • Image gallery
