Conclusion: The House in Nightmare Park Blu-ray Review
There are a few small white marks that occur from time to time but overall this is a pretty decent print. It sure would have been nice to see this film fully restored but sadly that’s not the case. That said I would still strongly recommend upgrading from the DVD version.
