Triple bill containing three horror movies. 'The Cars That Ate Paris' (1972), Peter Weir's critically acclaimed first film is a surreal and fantastic horror. On the outskirts of the small town of Paris, cars crash with alarming regularity. Arthur survives one such accident and becomes a prisoner of the town of Paris, although he's unaware of his predicament as the town has provided him with a surrogate family. But the crashes are not accidents; the townspeople have been laying traps for the passing traffic and the dead are disposed of while the injured are stored for medical experimentation. Paris lives off cars but these same cars begin to take revenge. In 'The Legend of Hell House' (1973), a group of psychic investigators steel their nerves and make ready to visit Hell House, an old haunted mansion which has already seen off one team of researchers. Entering its foreboding walls, they determine to reveal the house's secrets - but they will have to broach the very limits of madness before they do so. In 'The Fall of the House of Usher' (1960), when the last member of the Usher family inadvertently buries his cataleptic sister alive, she rises from the grave to wreak an awful revenge.
