Rich, portentious, and truly theatrical!,

This review is from: Theatre Of Blood [DVD] (DVD)
Long back, in an anthology called "British Invasion", I had read an introductory piece written by Kim Newman which had categorically stated that Hollywood remains indebted to the RADA-educated sneeres for all the villanious acts shown in their movies. The truth behind that assertion becomes evident if you watch this movie. Nearly every trope that we have come to associated with villains (in movies) feature in this film, all depicted the acts of the lead protagonist/antagonist portrayed by the incomparable Vincent Price, made even more OTT with all the dialogues and suitably cheesy murder-sequences. Recommended, if you are yet to see this film. Recommended anyway, even if you have seen it earlier.
