Theater of Blood (Special Edition) (no slipcase) (Blu-ray)
Screen legend Vincent Price (The Tomb of Ligeia) delivers a thrilling tour-de-force performance as a small-time actor plotting big-time revenge! This dramatically delicious concoction is an equal mixture of horror, comedy and Shakespeare that’ll please just about everyone—critics included! After years of suffering deadly reviews, hammy Shakespearean actor Edward Lionheart (Price) decides it’s curtains for his critics. Bumping off his detractors with executions inspired by the Bard, Lionheart stages a beheading in the manner of Cymbeline, a stabbing inspired by Julius Caesar and even an untimely removal of a pound of flesh improvised from The Merchant of Venice—proving once and for all that all the world really is a stage... for murder! Douglas Hickox (Brannigan) directed Price and a troupe of brilliant supporting players including Diana Rigg (Evil Under the Sun), Ian Hendry (The Bitch), Harry Andrews (The Nightcomers), Coral Browne (The Killing of Sister George), Jack Hawkins (Kidnapped), Michael Hordern (The Night My Number Came Up), Robert Morley (When Eight Bells Toll), Dennis Price (Kind Hearts and Coronets), Diana Dors (The Pied Piper), Madeline Smith (Live and Let Die), Joan Hickson (Seven Days to Noon), Renée Asherson (Pool of London), Milo O’Shea (Arabian Adventure) and Eric Sykes (Shalako).
