Hello everbloody, here you are at The Dungeon for our Friday Night Drive-In, and tonight we have another movie all about women in charge! This particular flick has the alternate titles of THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED, HOUSE OF EVIL, THE BOARDING SCHOOL and THE FINISHING SCHOOL!
It's about a French boarding school for wayward girls. The owner and mistress is the unforgiving and sadistic Senora Fourneau, played by Lilli Palmer, and enforces a strict discipline over her girls. There's also an air of mystery that surrounds the place. This movie gets high marks for sets, photography, directing and acting, and is considered a precursor to many of the Euro Gothic films to come.
Argentina born Waldo de los Ríos composed the music for this classy horror story. Unfortunately, Waldo took his own life in 1977 at age 42.
Alright!.. Here's Ralphie The Tarantula to start the show for you's. All he has to do is push that there big red 'GO' button right over there, and the soundclip will transfer itself directly into yer waiting earifice! Sooooo, Hit it Ralphie!!.. THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED!
But, there's also the darker side of Gurlz.
Then, it's off to ballet class!.. Women in a natural habitat!!
Hey, look!!.. A guy!!!
One by one, girls are starting to disappear. There's a murderer afoot at the estate, but who could it be?!
John (VAMPIRE CIRCUS) Moulder-Brown plays Luis, Senora Fourneau's son. Here, he sneaks a peek at the gurlz as they take their showers.
And, that would be the gurlz there!.. There is no nudity in this flick, not even in the uncut version!!
There are some lesbian overtones, of course. Hey, nice painting!
Senora Fourneau finally gets to see some of the results of her oppressive practices.
Luis totally enjoys hearing his mom cry out in horror inside the locked room at the end of the movie and the soundclip! After all, mom made him crazy!!
