Blood Island ★★ The Shuttered Room 1968

A couple inherits an old house on a remote New England island where the woman grew up. They discover that this old house needs more than a paint job to make it livable; seems there's something evil in them there walls. Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story. Greene, who's best known for later directing “Godspell,” and the solid cast fail to animate the inert script. 100m/C VHS . GB Gig Young, Carol Lyn-ley, Oliver Reed, Flora Robson; D: David Greene.
