The Shuttered Room

I think much of the menace in the movie came from Oliver Reed who was the leader of a motorcycle gang and who threatened Gig Young in a "Straw Dogs" sort of way.


I saw it on TV once in the Seventies and haven't seen it anywhere since. It was supposedly based on a story by H. P. Lovecraft (although the story was written by August Derleth after Lovecraft's death from HPL's notes.) The movie, if I remember correctly, while it hints at the supernatural, ends up explaining things rationally (perhaps a lunatic in the attic), which may be why a lot of horror fans might dismiss the film as a cheat.
