When a theatre actor is mocked by his critics, he seeks revenge through acting out the most brutal scenes from his last Shakespearean season.
Featuring a suitably ripe Vincent Price and a versatile Diana Rigg, the film boasts a cast of actors all gamely entering into the most perfect mixture of full horror and the blackest of comedy.
WARNING: this film contains some gruesome scenes that may upset sensitive people.
Dame Diana Rigg (1938 – 2020)
|In his introduction to this screening, Barry Purves will pay tribute to one of its cast: truly one of the great and versatile of British actresses, Dame Diana Rigg, who died on September 10th 2020. She leaves behind a wealth of stunning performances, on TV, film, and stage, from The Avengers, through Bond, Eliza Doolittle, Cleopatra, Lady Macbeth, Medea to The Detectorists, Game of Thrones and the current series of All Creatures Great and Small. Please come and enjoy her extraordinary performances in this wickedly dark Theatre of Blood.|
The bar will be open before and after the show.
