Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984)


The movie Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984) is a British horror comedy about a group of scientists lured to an eerie mansion where they start being killed off one by one.

The dedicated scientists of the Head Research Foundation arrive at the mysterious Head Manor for a conference hosted by a cult. However, the cult’s abi chemist Sinister plans to sacrifice the scientists to summon a demon.

The movie Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984) shows the hapless scientists picked off in macabre ways like electrocution in the hot tub. Bumbling detective Edmond Cucumber investigates the strange murders.

As the body count rises, the surviving scientists including Dr. Barbara Coyle and Elliot begin uncovering the mansion’s oddball secrets and kinky rituals of the sinister cult.
