"The House In Nightmare Park" is a sorely-underrated little gem, starring the great Frankie Howerd, and Ray Milland. In it our Francis plays a ham Victorian actor called Foster Twelvetrees, who is invited to give a private reading at a gothic monstrosity in the middle of nowhere. Of course, it turns out that all the family living there are not only completly bonkers, but are all out to kill him (and this isn't just because they don't like his acting!). This is classic black comedy, in the style of "The Cat And The Canary", and "The Old Dark House", complete with killer snakes in the basement, and a mad, hatchet-wielding old lady in the attic! It's sadly been rubbished by professional critics over the years, but it is in fact very funny, and Howerd gives an exuberant, joyous turn as Twelvetrees. He delivers his lines with absolutely brilliant comic skill.
