The Dunwich Horror (1970)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Dr. Henry Armitage, Sandra Dee and another girl who wasn't in the book visit the library of the Miskatonic University where they are studying, and find a mysterious young man named Wilbur Whateley trying to borrow the Necronomicon (to non-HPL fans : a book containing ancient rites to bring alien gods to our planet), and as it is a public library they let him. Sandra Dee offers to drive the moustachioed warlock back to his home in Dunwich, where he drugs her and makes her stay to be a part in his evil ceremonies.
A few years ago in Dunwich a half-witted girl bore illegitimate twins. One of them was almost human!

More Movie Taglines:
- A few years ago in Dunwich a half-witted girl bore illegitimate twins. One of them was almost human!
- The Devil's Spawn Is About To Open The Gates Of Hell!
- The sound of whipoorwills is the song of the Death in Dunwich!
- H.P. Lovecraft's Classic Tale Of Terror And The Supernatural!
- Keir Dullea and David Carradine were on the ideas list for the male lead.
Peter Fonda turned down the role of Wilbur Whateley.
The odd symbol that appears again and again - on Wilbur's ring, on his grandfather's staff, in the design on the main floor, etc. - is actually an ancient Native American symbol commonly termed "Thunderbird in sun".
Two sound-stages were used for Sandra Dee's nude scene to prevent "peeping toms." One sound-stage was used to shoot the scene and the other was used to house the cast not needed in the shot.
Carol Lynley was on the ideas list for the female lead.
