Our three-week salute to the late, great Christopher Lee begins with this spine-tingling gem from 1964. In a small German village circa 1910, a string of murders baffles the police and horrifies the community. Are the petrified corpses found at the crime scenes the work of a homicidal maniac… or an ancient evil? Join the dynamic horror duo of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing in this scary Hammer Films classic. (Brendan Carr)
