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.

"โ€œO, beware, my lord, of jealousy; it is the green-ey'd monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on." Critics, what do they know?"

"Plot: A disgraced actor enacts his revenge on the critics that brought on his fall from grace with the help of the dregs of society. A darkly comedic proto-slasher of the most enjoyable variety is this! Watch Vincent Price chew scenery in a variety of guises and situations with darkly delightful aplomb and revel in the cheeky jabs on film criticism. Bursting with creative (and hilarious)deaths, morbid melodrama, gallows humor, and clever self-awareness, "Theater of Blood" is a gleeful romp! "

" Date: 10/12/2021 Viewed: Hulu First Viewing Note: I thought I'd seen this movie when I was younger, but I have mistaken it for a different movie instead. I'm glad that I watched it because it was awesome. Theater of Blood is a solid horror film in my opinion. Vincent Price does an outstanding job as an actor who wants to murder the critics who dislike his stage performance. Theater of Blood feels like a slasher film despite not being a slasher film. I love Vincent Price's character's ability "

"Re-watch - Oct. 24th I haven't re-watched many films just for me this month due to spending so much time revisiting films with my daughter, so I figured I'd have a re-watch marathon after lunch. I started with a pair of killers, one who kills with planning and logic, the other based on his emotions. Both films feature all-time best performances from their lead actors, and the effects work in each film is especially outstanding. Theater of Blood also gave me a chance to watch a film with Diana R"

"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.
