Movie Ad of the Week: MASTER OF HORROR w/ MASTER OF TERROR (1966)
Presented by Jack H. Harris and released by Joe Solomon's U.S. Films, these "two chillers to turn your dreams into screams" arrived in Houston, TX on March 3, 1966. MASTER OF HORROR is the truncated U.S. version of OBRAS MAESTRAS DEL TERROR (1960), an Argentinian film consisting of adaptations of two Edgar Allan Poe tales, "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" and "The Cask of Amontillado." A third story, "The Tell-Tale Heart," was cut from this version, but later turned up in LEGEND OF HORROR (1972). The co-feature, MASTER OF TERROR, is a reissue of the Jack H. Harris production 4D MAN (1959), originally released by Universal and starring Robert Lansing, Lee Meriwether, James Congdon, Robert Strauss and Patti Duke.
