‘Doctor Blood’s Coffin‘ (1961) is a British movie directed by Sidney J. Furie
The film is also sometimes known as ‘Face of Evil‘.
The story is centered on a doctor, called Dr Blood (you just know that this is only going to end badly), who is conducting experiments on dead bodies and trying to bring them back to life. He has a lab set up and hidden in an abandoned Cornish tin mine
Dr Blood has a skewed sense of morality and his experiments involve trying to remove the beating hearts of individuals he feels are bad, and trying to use them to bring more worthy individuals back from the dead.
Meanwhile the inhabitants of the Cornish village are becoming increasingly suspicious about the people disappearing from their village.
The film came with some great posters, full of exaggerated poses, outstretched arms, and screaming women.
