The Dunwich Horror (1970)

    The Devil's Spawn Is About To Open The gates Of Hell!

    The strangely hypnotic, permed and mustachioed Wilbur Whately (Dean Stockwell), grandson of a despised sorcerer, tries it convince Miskatonic Univiversity - Go Pods! - professor Dr. Henry Armitage to let him borrow the mysterious and priceless Necronimicon from the college library. The good Doctor refuses to let the book go.  After a polite conversation over drinks with the professor and a couple of Miskatonic students, Wilbur misses the bus and exclaims "that is somethin' that I'll never ever ever do again."  Just kidding.  That was Kris Kross back in 1991.  But he did miss the bus and proceeds to use his creepy '70s charm to convince the lovely Nancy Wagner (Sandra Dee) to give him a ride back to his hometown of Dunwich.


    Back at the Whately estate, Wilbur sabotages Nancy's car, drugs her up and somehow convinces her to stay for the weekend.  Maybe she was mesmerized by the 'stache.  Dr. Armitage and Nancy's friend, Elizabeth, travel to Dunwich to investigate Nancy's disappearance but when they find her they can do nothing to convince her to leave the mustachioed charmer.


    The professor begins to investigate Wilbur's background by consulting another good Doctor, Dr. Cory, - who smokes a pipe so you know he's a stand-up guy.  Together as a sort of Sherlock Holmes and Watson duo, they reveal Wilbur's demonic past and the evil shenanigans that he and his twin brother are up to.  Wilbur wants the virginal Nancy to bear him a son to carry on his unholy  lineage and his brother, well, he just wants to eat people.  Can the two doctors stop Wilbur's evil plan and save Nancy in time?  Will his evil brother undress and/or eat all of the people of Dunwich? You will have to watch the film to find out.


    Even though it differs a great deal from the original story, if you like the writings of H. P. Lovecraft, this is a movie that you should definitely check out.  Also, if you like Dean Stockton with a perm and a mustache, this is your film.
