John Considine plays the flamboyant Dr. Death, a thousand-year-old magician who has mastered he art of transferring souls from one body to another and thereby manages to perpetuate himself by jumping from one body to the next. Apparently the Doc is a kindred spirit since his blood is a highly-corrosive acid that can strip flesh from bone. Written by
Dr.Death is an offbeat horror film about a man who visits a strange doctor in hopes that the latter can bring his dead wife back to life. Of course, things don't go as planned. The film has that early 70s, eerie, anything-can-happen feel and the actors, though not household names, are quite good. There are some truly unnerving moments and a surprise appearance by Moe from the 3 Stooges in a bit role, filmed shortly before his death. The film starts to lose it's strength as it nears the end but it's still a memorable experience.
