    Ask Agamemnon

    To Love a Vampire

    Are You Dying, Young Man?

    Girl in the Dark

    Yes - that was the easy one.

    A not-so-subtle title change.

    Ask Agamemnon is Goodbye Gemini - Agamemnon is the teddy bear belonging to twins Judy Geeson and Martin Potter. Think it was also the title of the book the film was based on. The film title is equally alliterative but easier to pronounce!

    For 'Young Man' and 'Devils Touch' read Beast in the Cellar and Blood on Satan's Claw

    Girl In the Dark is not Blind Terror. However, Blind Terror is on the list somewhere.

    The last one is not Mumsy etc (which was filmed under that title in Spring 1969) but the main character does have a mother who is played by a well-known actress presumably short of a few bob when she signed up to do the film.

    So far:

    Ask Agamemnon = Goodbye Gemini
    Young Man Are You Dying? = The Beast in the Cellar
    The Devil's Touch = The Blood on Satan's Claw
    To Love a Vampire = Lust for a Vampire

    Well deduced, Euryale:

    The Montreal Gazette, 11th November 1970

    Mia Farrow will star in Buff, the contemporary suspense thriller which is a Martin Ransohoff
    -Leslie Linder production. The film traces a series of violent events in a small English town.

    But that wasn't made till 1974/75 was it? Unless it was filmed earlier and had a delayed release.

    Well, the law of diminishing returns really! The OP said Blind Terror was on the list, and Buff seemed to fit that better than the remaining unguessed. Plus I suppose there were only so many horror films produced that year.

    The only other one I can think of is Fright with Susan George as a babysitter, taking place at night?

    Yes - Girl in the Dark is Fright. After Susan George finished this, she went on to do Straw Dogs which started only a week or two after this finished. And Soon the Darkness was made in 1969 under that title. Another similar film is Revenge, with James Booth and Joan Collins, which was shooting concurrently with Girl in the Dark/Fright.

    The Mummy one is about a very naughty boy who has a mummy.

    Nope. The main character and a girl go out on a date to the cinema to see a double-bill of Scars of Dracula of Horror of Frankenstein.
