HORROR HOSPITAL / Noteworthy Films - 1973

It's Murderin' Bloody Monday with Tabonga, here at Halloween Dungeon Countdown 2013!.. Here's a fun little flick starring Dungeon fave Michael Gough as the extra creepy Dr. Storm, maker of computerized Frankenstein monsters, alternate title is COMPUTER KILLERS.

Eegah!! sent over a rockin' soundclip from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the atomic powered computer, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... HORROR HOSPITAL!

Robin Askwith plays Jason, a member of a rock group who gets no respect. You can hear the 'Mystic' band in the soundclip that stole his tune, then, proceed to beat him up when he confronts them about it! Robin currently has a project in post-production and was Ray Fay in the wild 'n' weird, QUEEN KONG.

Jason decides he needs a break from the rock scene and signs up for a retreat in the country that caters to young people. On the train there he meets Judy, niece of the aunt who owns the place along with her husband, Dr. Storm, and, who are secretly using the guests for surgical mind-control experiments!

The movie was filmed at the Knebworth House in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England, for those who care.

On the way to their room, Jason and Judy get an eyefull when a door is accidently left open!

The two have a room together and take advantage of being young and horny... They have more important things to worry about than those silly old bloody bedsheets!

Jason and Judy have dinner with this group of, apparently, mimes without minds!

There's always plenty of interesting sights to see at the Horror Hospital retreat.

Here's my classic pic of the great Michael Gough in all his glory!

Dr. Storm has a mysterious black sedan with a special blade that can decapitate anyone trying to escape from the place.

Here's a special Halloween Countdown photo for Eegah!!, Dr. Storm's lil' helper's burning one of the creatures with a cigarette to show they're impervious to pain..

What?!.. Can't you see I'm busy?!!

Brainiac orders up a snack!

At the end, Jason destroys the computers which sends Dr. Storm's little monsters into a tizzy!

Then, what else, Dr. Storm becomes a victim of his own devices!!

Egad that all looks so super freaky! The gore is what it is, but that dinner scene is what would freak me out!
