Pausing to admire a window display of his own books, distinguished horror writer Ronald Chetwynd-Hayes is attacked by a desperate vampire, Eramus, faint from lack of sustenance. Assuring the startled victim that the neck bite was not deep, the grateful vampire takes him to the Monster Club wherein Eramus explains to Ronald the hierarchy and basic rules of Monsterdom, and illustrates his theme with three tales of toecurling terror... It would be remiss of us to suggest that The Monster Club is an entirely good film, however, this daft anthology is far more entertaining than its reputation might suggest. With a cast that includes Vincent Price, Donald Pleasence, Richard Johnson, John Carradine, Britt Ekland and Patrick Magee, this is a mind-boggling, camp, ridiculous classic.
