Back in the 70s or early 80s, my parents watched a strange movie on TV.  This was before cable and VCRs reached our household, so it had to be on one of the Big 3 networks, PBS or our local LeSea Christian Broadcasting station.  (LeSea Ministries was based in my hometown.)  It may have been a TV-movie.

What I recall:

--Everybody in Elizabethan (Shakespearean) clothing.

--A young woman goes to her sisters and mother and says she has just heard about Christ.  But her mother gets upset and hands her a ticket to Hell, saying she's going to go to Hell like the rest of the family.

--When it comes time to use these tickets, the family goes to the entrance of a cave.  There are human-seeming guards there who take the tickets.  They go down into Hell, where they soon discover it wasn't as great as they thought it would be.  They are tormented by the lashes of demons, etc.

After reading about the Carr/Mond Productions by the Ormond family, I thought maybe they made this movie.  But there isn't enough information about them on the Web to really tell for sure.

Anybody know what this movie was?

Maybe The Burning Hell - from 1974?

Nope.  I found that one on Youtube and skimmed through it.

Could it be Five Tickets to Hell (1963)? Never heard of it, though...
FairyQueen, have you ever seen The Haunted (1991)? I was looking for the movie for a long time, and I cam across it on YouTube. I remember watching that movie as a kid when they showed it on TV.

No, that seems to be about gangsters in the 20s.

I haven't seen "The Haunted," but it sounds intriguing.

How about a skit from the Benny Hill show?
