The Screaming Skull
"The Screaming Skull" (1958) starring John Hudson, Peggy Webber and Russ Conway is B Horror movie about a widower, Eric Whitlock (Hudson), who brings his new wife, Jenni (Webber) back to his large mansion and estate where he used to live with his deceased wife. The gardener, Mickey, has lovingly been keeping up the gardens and estate in memory of Eric's dead first wife while he has been away.
The house does not yet have the power turned back on so all night scenes are lit by candlelight. Jenni starts hearing noises at night and soon finds a screaming skull that's haunting her. Eric suspects it's Mickey that is up to no good and trying to scare her. Eric's first wife is haunting the estate but what does she want?
This movie has some great atmosphere. Moving around the big old house by candlelight. Creepy gardener wandering around the estate at night. Eerily screeching peacocks wandering the estate. This is definitely a B Horror movie so go in knowing this and enjoy.
