(Douglas Hickox, UK 1973, 104 min.)
Halloween. Soon after the apparent suicide of Shakespearean actor Edward Lionheart (Vincent Price), someone begins murdering the critics who once savaged the notorious ham’s career. But here’s the rub: they’re being killed off in elaborate set-pieces inspired by the Bard’s own plays. Itself inspired by The Abominable Dr. Phibes, this wickedly entertaining shocker about an underrated actor who takes his ultimate revenge was always one of Price’s personal favorites.
