Description:
Dr. Terrible's House of Horrible is a British television series, created by Graham Duff, co-written by and starring Steve Coogan. Originally aired on BBC2 in 2001, the programme was designed as an anthology show, in the style of Tales from the Crypt, and lampoon many aspects of the horror genre, homaging the British horror films of Hammer, Amicus and Tigon from the 1960s and 1970s. The title is itself a parody of the Amicus anthology horror film Dr. Terror's House of Horrors.

Dr. Terrible (Coogan) acted as the narrator for each episode, a self-contained spoof of a famous horror movie ('victims' included the Hammer Horror films, Fu Manchu, Witchfinder General and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde). The series also benefitted from guest star appearances from former genre stalwarts such as Honor Blackman, Graham Crowden, Sheila Keith and Angela Pleasence, all satirising their earlier film performances. Other notable guest stars include Mark Gatiss, John Thomson, Simon Pegg, Ronni Ancona, and Warwick Davis.

The six-episode series fell short of expectations, and failed to be recommissioned by the BBC, but has since been released on DVD.
