After a drug deal gone wrong, a group of punks attempt to flee a local amusement park by taking a mysterious old magician named Chandu (Frank Finlay; Lifeforce) and his beautiful daughter hostage. While trying to evade the police, the punks force Chandu to take them to his secluded mansion where they plan to seek refuge for the night and wait for the heat to die down. Unbeknownst to them, Chandu’s obsession with the black arts and the occult has summoned an evil that not even he can control. As the house itself begins to terrorize and kill the trespassers, the survivors desperately attempt to uncover the horrifying secret to the mansion’s magical spells, along with Chandu’s own dark past…
One of the last films directed by Spain’s notorious Juan Piquer Simón (Slugs), CTHULHU MANSION is a lavish and expectedly grotesque H.P. Lovecraft inspired chiller that, despite its early 90s production date, is firmly rooted in the aesthetics, gore, and creature effect work of prime 80s Euro horror. Never before on disc in the U.S., Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents this gothic gem in a new 2K restoration of archival 35mm film elements.
