Do you dare to enter the CHAMBER OF HORRORS? The 1966 gimmicky guilty pleasure arrives on Blu-ray for the first time in North America on July 27th!

Prepare yourself for a chilling tale of terror and unspeakable vengeance. The condemned maniac Jason Cravatte (Patrick O’Neal) escapes capture from the authorities at a bloody cost – by chopping off his manacled hand! Free to kill once more, he outfits his gruesome stump with tools designed to chop, rip, and skewer a new batch of victims as he embarks on a bloody spree of death!
Employing not one, but two infamous gimmicks – “The Fear Flasher” and “The Horror Horn” – to warn audiences in advance of its most shocking moments, CHAMBER OF HORRORS is a Grand Guignol cult favorite that’s every bit as twisted as its villain’s tortured soul!

Extras to be announced on a later date but we can confirm at this time that we will have an all-new HD transfer of the film! Pre-order now @ https://bit.ly/3saEN7H

I had forgotten all about this. I think I was enticed by an article in "Famous Monsters of Filmland".

Laura Devon was probably the best thing about the film. She showed off the costume designs to their best advantage, and screamed when she was supposed to.

It looked like a TV movie, brightly lit with minimal set-ups. No pacing to speak of. Everyone enunciated very succinctly, and mostly stood there, as if their shoes were slathered with concrete. Not amateurish, just perfunctory. It had all the complexity, as well as eeriness, of a kidney-shaped pool on a sunny day.

Though all the men overacted shamelessly, based on Patrick O'Neal's performance, his true metier was being a restaurateur.
