Theatre of Blood ★★★½

Theatre of Blood has an ageing Shakespearean actor take his revenge on the critics who denied him an acting award. He murders with methods utilised both in well known plays by Willie Shakes (The Merchant of Venice, Julius Caesar) as well as his lesser known plays (Cymbeline, Troilus and Cressida). The sheer ridiculousness of the proceedings are played with maximum luvvieness and a dash of camp (take a bow Robert Morley) by all involved, led by horror legend Vincent Price with able support from the gorgeous Diana Rigg. And you have to admire a film which includes as one of its credits "choreography of meths drinkers". Best enjoyed with a few drinks under the belt.
