Daniel Haller's follow-up to DIE, MONSTER, DIE! (1965) is another fairly successful attempt at adapting H.P. Lovecraft for the screen. Set in modern-day New England, the film stars Sandra Dee as Nancy Walker, a young college coed who is lured into the mysterious house of Whateley by the

mysterious young hipster Wilbur Whateley (Dean Stockwell). The local community has long suspected that the whole Whateley family--Wilbur, his grandfather (Sam Jaffe), and his mother, who is in an insane asylum--is unholy, and soon their suspicions are confirmed. Wilbur intends to use Nancy as a

human sexual sacrifice that will unleash dark powers--represented by his monstrous twin brother, who exists in another dimension--across the earth. Occult professor Dr. Armitage (Ed Begley, in his last screen appearance) discovers what Wilbur's up to, and with the aid of Nancy's roommate (Donna

Baccala), he tries to stop it. An extremely underplayed and somewhat eccentric performance by the mustachioed and curly-haired Stockwell keeps the film interesting and almost makes one forget director Haller's now-dated penchant for the psychedelic.
