THEATRE OF BLOOD (Midnight Movie Monographs)
THEATRE OF BLOOD (1973) Driected by Douglas Hickox.
It is notoriously difficult to mix Comedy and Horror. Rare are the examples where one element does not overpower the other: BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS, EVIL DEAD 2...
But perhaps no film gets it so spectacularly right as THEATRE OF BLOOD, and perhaps no actor has ever embodied the twin masks of Comedy and Tragedy so perfectly as Vincent Price in what is, arguably, his finest role.
A perfectly pitched, deliciously arch slice of Gothic Grand Guignol, with a supporting cast that reads like a veritable Who's Who of British Character actors. THEATRE OF BLOOD is: "Sublime... a perfect marriage of genuinely gut-wrenching gore and moments of quite hysterical comedy." - Reece Shearsmith (The League Of Gentlemen, A Field In England, PsychoVille, Number 9)
