Theater of Blood (1973)
Frequently Asked Questions
"A 1973 British black comedy starring Vincent Price as a Shakespearean actor who murders, one by one, the critics who panned him, copying the murders from the plays. One is beheaded in his sleep; one is drowned in a barrel at a wine-tasting, and the frustrated spinster who flirts with gay men is electrocuted under the dryer as Price, disguised as a hairdresser, recites Joan of Arc's death sentence from Henry VI, Part I: 'Because she is a maid, spare for no fagots, let there be enow.'"
