Movie Info

This semi-serious horror film represented the first on-screen pairing of icons Vincent Price and Peter Cushing, who play, respectively, aging former horror star Paul Toombes and actor-turned-writer Herbert Flay, who unite in an effort to revive the popularity of Toombes' screen character "Dr. Death" for a TV series. Having recently recovered from a nervous breakdown, Toombes comes under suspicion when several members of the show's cast and crew are murdered in grisly reenactments of Dr. Death's

A weak genre effort, Madhouse makes little if any effort to transcend the horror label, instead offering up familiar elements for the benefit of undemanding viewers. Nevertheless, it is amusing for [Vincent] Price fans.

only worth something because of the bizarre ending

Cheesy but enjoyable.

Audience Reviews for Madhouse (The Madhouse of Dr. Fear)(Deathday)(The Revenge of Dr. Death)

Vincent Price plays a washed-up B-movie star who may have a problem getting out of character when his celebrated alter ego, Doctor Death, apparently commits a string of murders influenced by his own back catalogue. An enjoyable, undemanding though silly horror film whose appeal chiefly rests in the all-too-rare opportunity to see Price acting opposite Peter Cushing, rarer still as the latter has a habit here of disappearing for long stretches at a time, so much so that one can only assume that he was only available to the production for a couple of days. With a cast that includes not only Cushing but also Adrienne Corri and Linda Hayden, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Hammer had a hand in the film, but it's actually a co-production of American International Pictures and Amicus, Hammer's American equivalent and its main British rival at the time. There's a lot of recycling of AIP highlights from the Sixties, allowing for second-hand screen credits for Karloff and Rathbone, so it's perhaps not surprising that an excellent editor, Jim Clark, was chosen to direct. As far as I'm aware, this was Clark's last outing as a director, after which he returned to editing. His impressive credits in that capacity include The Innocents, Charade, Marathon Man, The Killing Fields, The Mission and Vera Drake.

A mildly effective but harmless vehicle for venerable horror icons Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, Basil Rathbone and Boris Karloff.

I watched this one on Netflix over the web. Not sure why everyone is so pissed about Netflix, I've been a member since they started and feel that its a fair price for 3 DVDs and Unlimited Streaming. This is from the midnite movie collection, though its not offered as the usual Double film. Another one of Vincent Prices not so special movies. Vincent has a habit of blacking out, when he comes to a murder has been committed and he's not sure if he's the killer. Not his best but a Vincent Price movie that thrilled many of Drive in Goers. 3 stars
