Based on an Edgar Wallace novel, the intrigue-packed German suspenser "The Racetrack Murders" concerns the slaying of a beloved horse by the owner of a rival steed. As if that wasn't troubling enough, jockeys are being "scratched" by a mysterious killer as the track is overrun by scandals, drugs, and blackmail schemes. Hansjörg Felmy, Ann Smyrner, and Hans Nielsen star. Next, a mystery writer moves with his wife to "The House in the Woods" to work on his latest novel. But when the landlord turns out to be an unstable artist who may have murdered his wife, the author's imagination can't compare to the real-life terrors that await them. Creepy British adaptation of a Wallace chiller stars Michael Gough, Patricia Roc, Ronald Howard. 150 min. total. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
