#31DH: October 30th, 2015 – Theatre of Blood


Synopsis:  A Shakespearean actor takes poetic revenge on the critics who denied him recognition.

Impressions:  This movie follows a similar formula as other Vincent Price movies (specifically Dr. Phibes), where a person takes revenge on a group of people and one by one die according to some roadmap (TOB uses shakespeare, Phibes uses the plagues of egypt.)  Since i enjoy the campy Price films, i though this was not only cleaver, but it really showed that Price was much more than a horror actor.

Social Message:  What is it about criticism that make us angry?  Even constructive criticism can make some people irritate.  When we give/take criticism we need to always think of it as not a degrading of our character and/or achievements but as a way to improve and better ourselves.
