Section: Focus & Homages / Britannia B-side: Shakespeare Lives


Playing colossally classic roles may be a distinction and a huge dream for many actors, but it can also become a dangerous and insane obsession. This brilliant yet bizarre comedy-horror has Vincent Price starring as a self-important, psychotic actor who refuses to play anything other than Shakespeare. Feeling jilted by nine critics who denied him the Best Actor of the Year award, he re-enacts Shakespearean murder scenes with his daughter (Diana Rigg) to earn his gruesome revenge. Theatre of Blood is a genuine and underrated oddity of British cinema, combining grotesque cinematic effects with parody and caricatures to create an exceptional film.
