Magnificent Acting at Any Price
18 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an obtuse story of a sorcerer who hires a translator, played by Bill Bixby, to read an ancient manuscript containing an ancient curse. Vincent Price does his usual mugging best as the sorcerer, who, with his beautiful assistant enlist the nervous Bixby. There are things that should have been left unsaid because when these words are spoken, things are set in motion, including a twin brother who has been dismembered by his own brother and moves around the mansion in pieces; a hand here and a foot there. His head is kept in a closet and the body parts want to get back together. At times, things become quite confusing but Price and the others keep it going and the die is cast.
