Tales That Witness Madness

Tales That Witness Madness (1973)

My Rating

Movie Info

Essentially a reworking of their earlier omnibus Asylum, this is another anthology of pulp horror tales from Amicus, this one helmed by the ever-reliable Freddie Francis. It features a quartet of eerie vignettes involving four patients in the care of psychiatrist Dr. Tremayne (Donald Pleasence), who is attempting to justify his strange theories to a colleague (Jack Hawkins, who died shortly after his scenes were filmed) by explaining the horrific events that drove the patients to their current

It's all very unsatisfying, and baffling to think that this was a big enough project to attract Ms. Novak.

Audience Reviews for Tales That Witness Madness

There is no wonder why this is in set collections with Tales From the Crypt, it is just like the set-up of the ghoulish stories in Crypt except with Donald Pleasence in a psych ward going from each seemingly insane patient retelling each of their stories. The stories are just awesome, it ranges from a kid with his imaginary killer "friend" to a Hawaiian party from hell. What I love is that while Pleasence begins their stories the subjects of them seem to be in absolute shell shock murmuring some wort of madness to themselves as he begins each tale.

4 out of 5, it's campy but satisfying as all hell.
