Several tales of woe, torture and black comedy in this 'Horror' classic from 1973!
How they ever got all these big names into this kind of movie I will never know... Diana Rigg, Ian Hendry, Jack Hawkins, Michael Hordern, Arthur Lowe, Robert Morley, Dennis Price, Eric Sykes, Diana Dors and Joan Hickson - to name just some of them!
Vincent Price is probably the only name not out of place here - comfortable in his genre he depicts an actor who cannot play Shakespeare to save his life... He's lousy at it and is slated accordingly with acid remarks from a circle of famous Critics, and so he's out for blood - literally! A few of the more entertaining (and ever so black amusing tales) are those played out by Robert Morley, Arthur Lowe, Coral Browne and Diana Dors.
Also stars a very handsome and virile-looking Harry Andrews!
I can only think in order get such big names in this type of movie, must have meant that everyone who was anyone on screen back then wasn't anyone, unless they had been seen in a British Horror! Anyway, it worked marvellously with great results, and has become a 'classic' of the genre!
