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

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 thespian uses this cover to exact grisly -- and fitting -- revenge on the critics who ignored his genius.

"Delightfully cheeky in its unrepentant flippancy toward critics, "Theater of Blood" is a horror middle finger to any derision toward the genre. Mind you, it all comes across with tongue planted firmly in cheek. In this Price classic, a disgraced theater actor does away with his critics in the goriest fashions that Shakespeare could conjure up, all to the delight of the sycophantic derelicts, vagabonds, and madmen that adulate him.
