Horrors of the Black Museum is a 1959 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 (with sexual undertones), in contrast to the supernatural horror of, say, the Hammer films of the same era. In this movie, a frustrated thriller writer hypnotizes his assistant into committing crimes for him to write about.
