Trivia

Although the publicity for the film made much of the fact that the three greatest horror stars of the day - Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing - were all in it, the three actors have, in fact, only small roles in the film, despite star billing. Peter Cushing's role is confined to one scene, without the other two; the Price and Lee characters have a very brief scene together only at the very end of the film; and the combined footage for all three actors only comes to about one-fifth of the film's total running-time.

Great atmosphere, great plot, fair otherwise
24 December 2001 | by (Washington DC suburb) – See all my reviews

'Scream and Scream Again' is one of my favorites, even though it is ratherly poorly put together. The director tried to make the movie mysterious -- and succeeded too well, making it nearly incomprehensible. However, if you have patience, the final explanation at the end will tie enough of the film together to make rewarding sense.

The main attraction for this movie is its subtle atmosphere of horror. The movie mainly consists of fragmented images that come to gether to paint a darker picture than just what the movie shows. A good example of the texture and flavor of the film is the scene which, to my disappointment, was removed from the version I rented (I originally saw the film in a college Halloween movie festival). A coroner while alone investigating the death of a lovely women begins to move forward as if to kiss the corpse but is interrupted by the inspector entering the room. The surprised coroner quickly straightens up and tries to look very official and busy, but obviously is upset at having almost been caught being amorous to the corpse. No further reference was made to the scene.

This is an example of the extremely dark and upsetting images that lie just beneath the surface of the film. It is unfortunate that the director's attempt to involve the audience by making them work hard to piece together fragments of action into something comprehensible was mostly unsuccessful. Still, I think the film is worth the patience. My rating: 8 of 10.
