Trivia

(At around thirty-eight minutes) It might be an amusing coincidence, but when Helen (Judy Bloom) and Keith (Michael Gothard) are driving from the club to a make-out spot, she guesses his name is Michael. Keith replies, "Not today, lady." See more »

Alternate Versions

British prints of SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN have small differences than AIP's American Theatrical cut, with the American version removing Bellaver clumsily throwing a stone at the speedy cliff-climbing super-human Keith, and a bottle-swigging old drunk peeping at Keith and Sylvia fooling around in the convertible. The final shot of the British print is also different, with the credits scrolling over a long shot of Dr. Browning's lab heard over soundtrack music, rather than on the American print which has the credits being presented over a black screen with The Amen Corner's "Scream and Scream Again" playing. One thing omitted from the American version is a brief but significant dialogue exchange between Vincent Price and Christopher Lee: "But what of the dream?" asks Price. "There is only nightmare" replies Lee). See more »

You will scream again and again!
21 December 2001 | by the lionessSee all my reviews

This has got to be the wildest Price film ever. I saw this film for the first time recently and I was just blown.

This film tells the intricate story of an organization that's trying to take over the world by way of a superhuman race of people that are literally created. Think "Frankenstein". If I could rename this film, I'd call it "Frankenstein Meets James Bond". As a matter fact, that's the best way to describe the plot.

When you see this film, don't turn away from it because you will find yourself missing a lot. There are several plots going on simultaneously (I kid you not!). You have the crazed serial killer will a thirst for blood, the runner who keeps losing limbs and the secret organization that's afoot.

For those of you that are looking for action & horror in a fast-pace setting, you got it!
