Fear Chamber (1968)



The quartet of American/Mexican horror films that Karloff did near the end of his life get little respect, but once studied, they evolve into interesting pieces of cinema, with flashes of brilliance among their middling horror fare. These films still need to be released in respectful and authoritative versions, both the English language versions and Spanish language ones.

Here are some screen captures of the best version of FEAR CHAMBER (LA CAMARA DEL TERROR) that I have yet seen. Taken from a Mexican DVD on the Televisa label.

Good, crisp images. These would have made delightful additions to the late-lamented Casa Negra line.

that looks amazing. I've seen all four on crappy VHS tapes and always felt they might have got an unfair rap for being so bad just because of sloppy pan and scan crappy duping. Por que no mas Casa Negra, el mundo es stupido...

beautiful caps. I wish I could find this locally as we have plenty of Hispanic video outlets in town. They are hit and miss though as far as genre films are concerned.
