Theatre of Blood

"OK"

Theatre of Blood Review


This is about as close as Vincent Price got to playing Hamlet, in his campy and bizarre Theatre of Blood. Recalling Dr. Phibes, Price once again plays a man hell-bent on revenge, only this time it's an actor murdering his former critics. Unfortunately the killings aren't as wild in the Theatre -- even a drowning in a vat of wine looks an awful lot like someone splashing around in water. Come on Vincent, throw in some food coloring for us! And Vinnie with an afro... some things are too frightening for the movies.

Aka Theater of Blood.
