This 1968 minor horror classic made a major impact on its cult following that enjoys devouring the plot's delightfully horrid twists and turns. This fascinating, offbeat thriller stars Lon Chaney, Jr. as the forever-patient servant who watches over a threesome of siblings with Merrye Syndrome, a mysterious neurological disease that causes their brains to decay. Alternating between violent and infantile states, the three surviving Merrye kids-the end of the family's line-live in a dilapidated mansion. Jill Banner as the increasingly eccentric Virginia, Sid Haig as Ralph, and Beverly Washburn as Elizabeth, are always in various states of the disease's deadly and horrific clutches. This gleefully deranged thriller also features Carol Ohmart and Quinn K. Redeker as two distant cousins, Emily and Peter Howe, who might want to think twice before pursuing the family mansion and estate. Whoops, too late. Dark Sky Films presents the director's cut, transferred and restored in hi-def from 35mm original negatives. It also features lost footage and never-before-seen featurettes created for its home video release.
