Triple bill of classic horrors starring Tod Slaughter.
In 'Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street' (1936), Slaughter stars as the notorious barber who amasses a tidy fortune by cutting sailors' throats and disposing of their bodies in home-made meat pies.
All goes well until he falls in love with a young woman and excites the jealousy of his elderly female accomplice.
In 'Maria Marten' (1935), Squire (Slaughter) abuses Maria (Sophie Stewart), a young country girl, and kills her after he finds out she's pregnant with his child.
Maria, however, does not rest in peace. In 'Crimes at the Dark House' (1940), a psychopath (Slaughter) murders a wealthy man and then assumes his identity to take control of his large estate.
He plots to wed a rich heiress and kills anyone who is suspicious of his true identity.
