    Enter The Houses of Doom …. a 4 film horror series that was made for Italian television in 1989, but things didn’t quite turn out “safe for TV” when producers enlisted cinematic madmen Lucio Fulci and Umberto Lenzi to direct! Far too gory and violent for television and essentially shelved until home video many years later, Cauldron Films is proud to release all 4 films (The House of Clocks & The Sweet House of Horrors directed by Lucio Fulci and The House of Lost Souls & The House of Witchcraft directed by Umberto Lenzi), collected on Blu-ray for the first time in a 6 disc set (4 Blu-rays / 2 CD soundtracks) fully uncut and restored from 2K scans of the film negatives, housed in a rigid outer box with 4 folded posters!

    Disc 1 (Blu-ray):

    The House of Clocks

    1989 / Italy / 1.66:1 / 83 minutes / Horror / Director – Lucio Fulci

    Three young thieves looking for a big score set their sights on the most lavish house they can find. Little do they know that this house and its inhabitants have murderous impulses of their own. Will they make it out alive? Only time will tell…

    This bloody and violent tale of time and revenge is directed by Lucio Fulci (Zombie) and stars Keith Van Hoven (Black Demons), Karina Huff (The Black Cat), Paolo Paoloni (Cannibal Holocaust), Carla Cassola (The Sect), Bettine Milne (The Avengers TV series) and Al Cliver (The Beyond) with soundtrack by Vince Tempera (The Psychic)

    A wealthy couple in a mansion are brutally murdered, leaving their two young children in the care of their aunt and uncle. The distraught kids seek to communicate with the ghosts of their parents, but they aren’t the only spirits in the building. Chaos ensues as the confused aunt and uncle try to sell the property, prompting the dead to clearly make their desires known.

        I was really looking forward to this but $95 seems like an awful lot of money for this thing...

          I don't know, around $24 per film seems reasonable to me. Plus you get two CD soundtracks.

            Sometimes things just seem overpriced and this is one of those times for me; I know I've paid more for less and thought less about it. Maybe it's a subconscious thing because these are TV movies...

                I see Lenzi and Fulci and I'm like "hell yeah!" But then I just can't get past "made for TV". I need to look through my collection to see how many late 80's Italian horror films I actually enjoyed. I feel like most of them were kinda meh (Nightmare Beach, Beyond the Door III, The Church, Witchery) and nothing was a "must see".

                  The Lenzi titles are the big draw for me, they’re nothing amazing but I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of those DVDs and they’re titles I specifically wanted to upgrade. The Fulci titles I kind of look forward to revisiting in HD but really have my doubts about after falling asleep trying to revisit House of Clocks recently and not remembering my single viewing of The Sweet House of Horrors at all.

                    Soavi's tv crime drama limited series Uno Bianca is really good. I'm sure there are some gems in Italian TV but some brave soul will have to dive in to find the gems.
