Filmed at the full frame 4:3 ratio, with lots of dead space above the players' heads, obviously intended for 16:9 wide screen theatrical matting, frequent boom mic intrusions are visible at the top of the frame when viewed on television. See more »

HILLBILLYS IN A HAUNTED HOUSE (1967) * (D: Jean Yarbrough) A terrible film, badly directed by Yarbrough. His last film, and possibly Basil Rathbone's too (or perhaps AUTOPSY OF A GHOST). Lon Chaney Jr. and John Carradine can't help matters either - all three are wasted. They should have been put to better use even taking into account the low budget. Rathbone in particular appears disinterested (and who can blame him?) Just barely tolerable to see the three actors, but for completists only. Many awful tunes.
