Amicus Productions was the only serious rival to Hammer films in the 1960’s and 1970’s, especially with their anthology films.

 

It all started, for us horror fans, with CITY OF THE DEAD back in 1960 a wonderful black and white tale of Witchcraft, with Christopher Lee.  But the one that put Amicus on the map was DR. TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS in 1964.  Soon followed by two Dr.Who and the Daleks films.

 

Amicus stayed active well into the 1970’s with titles such as:

THE DEADLY BEES

THE PSYCHOPATH

TORTURE GARDEN

THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE

THE TERRORNAUTS

THE MIND OF MR. SOAMES

SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN

THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD

I, MONSTER

TALES FROM THE CRYPT

THE VAULT OF HORROR

ASYLUM

THE BEAST MUST DIE

MADHOUSE

FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE

And the Edgar Rice Burroughs films done for American-International.

 

But this is more than just a history of the films – it is the story of two men – Max Rosenberg and Milton Subotsky.  Together, they formed Amicus Productions, and while both New York bred and raised, and Jewish, were about as much alike as oil and water.  And their clashes, while making these successful films, lead to lawsuits that would end Amicus as we knew it (the company has become active again with a former associate of Max Rosenberg, and has made several films recently).

 

Here is the inside story on the making of the films, about the films And about the inside battles between Max and Milton that are almost as interesting as the films themselves.

 

Illustrated with over 200 photos, ad mats and art work by Stephen Bissette, Neil Vokes, Adrian Salmon and Graham Humphreys.

 

100 pages.
