Original Australian Daybill Poster The Monster Club
Very Rare Daybill Poster. The Monster Club is a 1981 British horror film directed by Roy Ward Baker and starring Vincent Price and John Carradine. An anthology film, it is based on the works of the British horror author R. Chetwynd-Hayes. It was the final film from Milton Subotsky who was best known for his work with Amicus Productions; Amicus were well known for their anthologies but this was not an Amicus film. It was also the final feature film directed by Baker. Christopher Lee was originally sought for the role of Chetwynd-Hayes, but flatly turned the offer down simply upon hearing the film's title from his agent. Peter Cushing also turned down a role. It was one of the last feature films for Anthony Steel. The film was released to cinemas in the UK on 24 May 1981 and in subsequent years attracted a cult following.
