House of Seven Corpses is a chilling horror movie from 1974 directed by Paul Harrison. It tells the story of a film crew shooting a horror movie in an abandoned mansion that is believed to be cursed. The crew, made up of a director, an actress, a screenwriter, and a production assistant, soon discovers that the curse is real and that they are in grave danger.

The movie begins with the film crew arriving at the mansion to start shooting their horror movie entitled "The Devil's Express." The mansion, which was once owned by a powerful occultist, is said to be cursed and haunted by spirits. Despite the warnings of the locals, the crew dismisses the superstition and proceeds with the shoot.

As they work on the movie, strange things start to happen. Doors lock and unlock by themselves, candles light and extinguish, and eerie sounds can be heard from the empty rooms. The crew finally discovers a secret passage leading to a crypt beneath the mansion where they find the remains of seven corpses, which triggers a series of supernatural events that go beyond their imagination.

As the curse takes hold of the crew, they become possessed by spirits and forced to re-enact the fate of the seven corpses in the film. The director, Eric Hartman (John Ireland), is determined to finish the shoot, even though it means risking the lives of his crew. Meanwhile, his lead actress, Gayle Dorian (Faith Domergue), confronts the occult forces that have taken over.

The movie is an eerie and atmospheric horror film that builds up tension throughout. The pacing is slow, allowing the viewers to get to know the characters and the mansion before the supernatural events start to unfold. The acting is strong, with John Ireland playing the role of the stubborn and determined director, and Faith Domergue delivering a powerful performance as the lead actress who refuses to be a victim.

The movie is notable for its use of practical effects, including animatronics, puppetry, and makeup effects. The special effects create a creepy and unsettling atmosphere that adds to the overall feel of the movie. The score is also noteworthy, with composer Phillip Lambro creating a haunting and otherworldly sound that reinforces the supernatural themes of the film.

Overall, House of Seven Corpses is a must-watch for horror fans who enjoy old-school horror movies. It offers a clever spin on the traditional haunted house story and takes the viewers on a spooky ride through a cursed mansion. It is an atmospheric and chilling horror movie that stands the test of time, and a great example of 1970s horror cinema.

House of Seven Corpses is a 1974 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.3.
