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
Do you have an appreciation for 70's occult horror movies? Do you like over-the-top performances by effeminate satanists? Do you like your horror movies to be more weird than frightening? .... If you answered "yes" to at least two of these questions, you will find Doctor Death: Seeker Of Souls more than worthy of an hour and a half of your time.
Doctor Death has spent the past several centuries hopping around from body to body and kissing dead women. So why should the 1970's be any different? Seriously, this movie belongs in the same category as "Manos: The Hands Of Fate" and "Dungeon Of Harrow" - all belonging to an ambitious class of horror movies that had dialogue, actors, and set designs that well superseded their meager budgets. You will definitely find much more to laugh at than to cover your eyes in fear from, namely the completely ridiculous performance by John Constadine who will keep your eyes and ears glued to the TV as inane words are spurted out of his hammy mouth.
The other thing to watch out for are some excellent character actors (some of whom were quite famous decades before this production began) scattered throughout the film. Yes, that is Moe from the 3 Stooges playing an extra as a volunteer in Doctor Death's audience. Florence Marly deserves a special mention for her alluring mysterious performance as Tana, the wife of Doctor Death.
This is one of those DVD's that should come with a pre-rolled joint included.
