Horrors of the Black Museum is a British horror film starring Michael Gough and directed by Arthur Crabtree. It was the first film in what film critic David Pirie dubbed Anglo-Amalgamated's "Sadian trilogy" , with an emphasis on sadism, cruelty and violence , in contrast to the supernatural horror of the Hammer films of the same era. Frustrated thriller writer Edmond Bancroft owns a private "black museum" of torture instruments. He hypnotizes his assistant Rick to commit increasingly horrific crimes for Bancroft to write about.
