I don't like this film much because it is center around Shakespeare and I wasn't much of a fan of Shakespeare to being with. I will say that I do love seeing Vincent act out his plays, which he'd been doing before he was a film actor. It comes as no surprise that this was the film Vincent regarded as his favourite. He wears so many different costumes in this and he even sports an afro in one bit. ... read more

Description: Vincent Price channels his peerless talent for playing refined madmen into the character of Edward Lionheart, a proud London actor who goes dramatically bonkers when he fails to receive a coveted award. While riverside tramps foil Lionheart's attempt to drown himself in the River Thames, the world believes he's met a watery end. The t ... (more)

""Lacked originality? My Julius Caesar, cut down by a drunken mob in an abandoned warehouse? My Titus Andronicus: this is your dish, Meredith Merridew? My Othello, one of the greatest performances in the history of the theatre?" In many ways, this is the quintessential Vincent Price movie. It contains all of the camp and sense of fun that Price was known for, but dials it up to 11. Theatre of blood is a fantastic comedic horror film that pokes fun at the rise of critics and their ability to des"

" Theater of Blood is Vincent Price's show. He runs this theater with an iron fist as a disgruntled actor who faked his own death to come back on stage and kill his critics while dressed up in various Shakespeare-costumes and playing appropriate roles. Every appearance from the man is oozing with cheese, charisma and laughs in a perfect combination. The gore is minimal, but fits in with the funny tone. My favorite scene is when Price kills one of his victims in a hair salon dressed up as a haird"

"4.1 Worse Than Listal Rating 4.1 Worse Than IMDb Rating -4.1 Different Than Average Rating Vincent Price stars as a Shakespearean actor, thought to be dead, who returns to kill off the reviewers who wronged him in deaths inspired by the bard's plays. Yet, somehow, despite all that, this movie just doesn't work. It remains quite dull throughout most of it with characters making just terrible, unexplainable decisions. Not campy enough to be an accidental classic. Really, despite Vincent doing wh"

"October 13 Since the giraffe said that no horrorfest is complete without at least one Vincent Price film, I took his advice and decided to watch one. I chose this one since it was on his Great underappreciated films list. Vincent Price does a good job as the crazy actor. I also liked the fencing scene in the movie. This is a good movie that is definitely going on my list of overlooked movies."

"Katsottu: 21.1.2012 Taisin nauraa yhden kerran koko elokuvan aikana. Jotenkin odotin, että tämä olisi ollut perseilyä. Karvas pettymys, koska huumori olikin kuivaa ja Vincent Price ei ollut hauska. Alkoholi ja väsymystila saattoivat vaikuttaa asiaan, mutta tuskin tämä koskaan tulee olemaan viiden tähden leffa."
