5.0 out of 5 stars Grand Guignol Classic, 17 July 2007
This review is from: Theatre Of Blood [DVD] (DVD)
Along with the fabulous casting, and the career defining performance from the greatest horror (and comic horror) actor of all, the best thing about this film is the story itself, what a corker! But I would still love to be told whose idea this actually was, did it get a theatre run first, as these sort of films often did, or was it taken from a short story or novel? If it's an original idea from the screenwriter, then someone from BAFTA ought to recommend they be given a special award, however belated, for coming up with one of the greatest ideas for a film there ever was. The whole structure, though, was very firmly based upon the slightly earlier Price vehicle, The Abominable Dr. Phibes. In fact it is slavish to this film's framework, but nevertheless it helped produce a much better realised film here, indeed a classic horror comic, perhaps the best ever made.
