'The Monster Club' - A writer of horror stories (John Carradine) is invited to a monster club by vampire Erasmus (Vincent Price). There the mysterious old gentleman spins three chilling tales of monsters ghouls and vampires. This most unique horror entertainment combines a star-studded cast with horror humor and music.

'Harlequin' - A modern-day politician is faced with an incomprehensible power in this startling, award-winning supernatural thriller. Senator Rast (David Hemmings) holds a powerful government position, but he's no match to the extraordinary power of the enigmatic stranger who mysteriously comes to visit him. Possessing uncanny magical prowess and psychic abilities, the seemingly benevolent visitor quickly gains hold of the Senator and his family. When the visitor becomes aware of Rast's loveless family life, he uses his powers to gain control over the Senator's wife and son. Will these dark forces be Rasts undoing, or will the diabolical drifter finally meet his match?
