Theatre of Blood

Fri, 22 Apr, 7.30pm

Director: Douglas Hickox

Cast: Vincent Price, Diana Rigg

1973 \ UK \ 104 min \ In English \ Rating: tbc


This brilliant yet bizarre comedy-horror has Vincent Price starring as self-important, psychotic actor who refuses to play anything other than Shakespeare. Feeling jilted by nine critics who denied him the Best Actor of the Year award, he re-enacts Shakespearean murder scenes with his daughter (Diana Rigg) to earn his gruesome revenge. Theatre of Blood is a genuine and underrated oddity of British cinema, combining grotesque cinematic effects with parody and caricatures to create an exceptional film.
