Theatre of Blood (1973)

And here we are again, back to the 1970's. But at least there is Vincent Price this time.

As a theatre nerd and a horror fanatic, I have to have seen this one before. I mean, it has my name practically stamped on it: deranged actor murders his critics in the style of famous Shakespearean deaths. I must have seen it, right? Vincent Price? Diana Rigg? Surely I watched it before?!? This could not be any more up my alley!!

Except.

If I have, I did not remember a beat of it. Which might actually say more about the movie than it does me. It's gorgeous, hilarious but ultimately there isn't much to it.

It's a delightful romp overall, but high art it ain't.

Available on Hulu
