Back in the mid 60's to early 70's, Amicus Productions (The Studio That Dripped Blood) rivaled the famous Hammer Studios and its' horror films, and the releases from the two English studios were often confused as they often used many of the same actors and directors. Amicus Productions was most famous for its' creepy horror anthologies, including The House that Dripped Blood (1970), Tales from the Crypt (1972), Asylum (1972), The Vault of Horror (1974), and From Beyond the Grave (1975). Amicus, formed by a partnership between producers Milton Subotsky and Max J. Rosenberg, dissolved in the mid 70's, as did Amicus Productions. While many fans mourned the passing of this wonderful and short-lived institution, Subotosky did go on to form Sword and Sorcery Productions, which released The Monster Club (1980), bringing back some of the magic of a time since past.
Directed by Roy Ward Baker, who also did Asylum and The Vault of Horror, along with numerous Hammer films, The Monster Club, based on a book by famed and prolific author R. Chetwynd-Hayes boasts a plethora of stars including Vincent Price, John Carradine, Donald Pleasance, Britt Ekland, Stuart Whitman, and Patrick Magee, among others. There are three stories here, loosely tied together with a wrap-around story and a number of musical performances (B.A. Robertson is great performing 'Sucker for Your Love'), all wonderful in their own right.
The film starts off with the wrap-around story, as we meet a character named after the author of the book the film is based on, R. Chetwynd-Hayes (Carradine) being approached by a man looking for a bite, as he hasn't eaten in a couple of weeks.

This 1981 comedy-horror-musical film stars Vincent Price, John Carradine, Donald Pleasence. A writer of horror stories is invited to a monster club by a mysterious old gentleman. Three gruesome stories are told and between each story musicians play songs. This was Vincent Price's only vampire role. The picture and audio quality are great in this release. There is over 2 hours of total bonus content.

Story 1: Shadmock (vampire/werewolf) with Barbara Kellerman and Simon Ward.
Story 2: Vampire Hunters with Donald Pleasance.
Story 3: Humghoul (human/ghoul) with Stuart Whitman. Easily the best segment.

Special Features:
62-minute interview of Vincent Price conducted in 1987 by film historian David Del Valle
41-minute audio interview between Del Valle and Price
On camera interview with David Del Valle

Curious horror anthology is loosely based on the works of horror novelist R. Chetwynd-Hayes, portrayed by John Carradine as an active partaker in his own tales. The author is invited by a smooth vampire (the fabulous Vincent Price) to go with him to The Monster Club, where he bears witness to the secret social customs of various monsters, which evidently include drinking, dancing, and watching undead stripping Go Go Ghouls. He is also educated to the mating patterns of these creatures, whose tendency to inter-breed creates such new strains of monsters. All of this is interjected by short stories featuring campy yet fun monsters running amok. A fun side note is that the movie features music by pop-reggae band UB40. Have no sense of humor? Avoid this film. Love campy fun? Don't miss out.

Being a huge fan of Elvira, I originally bought the VHS of THE MONSTER CLUB in the 80s when she hosted the film on her "ThrillerVideo" collection. I remeber seeing for the first time and loving all three stories in the trilogy, the great performances by Price and Carradine, the atmosphere and monster "Make-up" (i.e. cheap rubber masks) and even the over-the-top musical numbers (especially "The Stripper," complete with a woman stripping down to her skeleton in animation). Since then I've watched the film every halloween.

I was thrilled to see the film was finally on DVD. The film is in widescreen with a pretty decent transfer--but what MOST inpressed me was the Special Features. The gallery (featuring posters, adslicks, lobby cards, etc.) PLUS the FULL SOUNDTRACK of TMC (score AND songs), plus an Easter Egg featuring an interview with the "Slingshot Ghoul" in the Humgoo story.

The DVD is a treat and highly recommended.

"The Monster Club" is the last of the portmanteau horror films produced by Milton Subotsky -- half of the Amicus Films team -- and for decades it's been thought to be the least, a pale shadow of the likes of "Dr. Terror's House of Horrors" or "Tales From the Crypt." But time has been oddly good to this little picture. Vincent Price stars as a vampire who invites John Carradine, playing real-life author R. Chetwind-Hayes, on whose stories the film is based, to a discotheque for monsters only, and then relates three tales of terror, two serious, one tongue-in-cheek. They're all pretty good, though the scenes in the club can sometimes be a bit much. Still, Price's explanation of the in-breeding of monster hybrids, which came off as high camp at the time, now seems to have paved the way for today's "The Vampire Diaries." The supporting cast, including Simon Ward, Richard Johnson, Stuart Whitman and Donald Pleasence, is fine, and Whitman's story, involving a secluded village of monsters, is atmospheric. But Price is basically the whole show. By 1980 he had largely forsworn horror films, particularly campy horror films, but here he is in fine form and his unique voice, conditioned by his return to the stage for a one-man show on Oscar Wilde, is at its most rich and resonant. His climactic explanation as to why humans are the ultimate monsters is a tour de force. For his part, John Carradine seems a little puzzled by the proceedings at times, but he's done worse. (A lot worse.) All in all, this is worth a look, and maybe a return visit as well.
