Little Shoppe of Horrors


The British Films of American International Pictures

By John Hamilton


      From 1954 until 1979, American International Pictures - the brainchild of James H. Nicholson and Samuel Z. Arkoff - produced a mixture of cheap black and white 'B' pictures, in all genres, before moving on to color - Edgar Allan Poe, Hell's Angels bikers, and Frankie & Annette frolicking on the beaches of California.


And for more than 20 of those years, British films and film makers played a big part in the success of AIP. Cat Girl. Horrors of the Black Museum. The Headless Ghost. Circus of Horrors. Konga. Night of the Eagle (Burn, Witch, Burn). Unearthly Stranger. The Masque of the Red Death. Tomb of Ligeia. City Under the Sea (War Gods of the Deep). Monster of Terror (Die, Monster, Die!). Jules Verne's Rocket to the Moon. Witchfinder General (The Conqueror Worm). Curse of the Crimson Altar (The Crimson Cult). The Haunted House of Horror (Horror House). The Oblong Box. Scream and Scream Again. Cry of the Banshee. The Vampire Lovers, Wuthering Heights. Murders in the Rue Morgue. The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Whoever Slew Antie Roo? Dr. Phibes Rises Again. Madhouse. Hennessy. The Edgar Rice Burroughs/Amicus trilogy.


Vincent Price. Boris Karloff. Christopher Lee. Peter Cushing. Barbara Steele. Michael Gough. Ingrid Pitt.


Anglo Amalgamated. Tigon. Amicus. Hammer.
