High camp horrorfest starring Vincent Price and Christopher Lee.

February 21, 2008

A marvelous combination horror film and spy film

June 10, 2005

Incomprehensible twaddle that wastes all-star horror cast.

October 1, 2003
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Two essentially unrelated tales jammed serviceably into one rather bizarre film.

Audience Reviews for Scream and Scream Again (Screamer)

A movie with Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and Vincent Price! I was so excited to see this movie, but was really disappointed by the story. The beginning is horrible, the middle is okay but sort of boring, and the end is cool but confusing. Overall not a good movie at all, but it's got a great cast who try their best.

Think about it...Vincent Price...Christopher Lee...Peter can you go wrong?

Sadly not even watching those three (all favorites of mine) hamming it up was enough to make this mish-mash of a film enjoyable.

Not that I was expecting GREAT things storywise, but I kept waiting for it all to "come together" in some sort of way. But it never really does.

While I wouldn't recommend this film to any but the loyalist fans of the three gentlemen mentioned above...I can highly recommend the chessy, groovy, jazzy soundtrack - it was wonderful!

Absolute a degree. This movie is a lot smarter than it seems. It's full of over-the-top dated 60's music and a barely coherent plot, but it's full of enough charm and star power to make it a classic.
