On TV: Haunted House of Horror

Just in case you've never seen it, cult swinging sixties horror, the Haunted House of Horror is showing on Friday night on BBC2. Or theoretically, Saturday morning. The time is actually 2:25am on Saturday morning, perfect after a night out – or just set the timer. It's a typically oddball […]
