Gruesome chilling tale of dynasty change.
Makes for pretty compelling entertainment. Just don't take it for anything like historically accurate
Tower of London is a quasi-horror movie that is set in the medieval times; the movie follows the rise of King Richard III who took his seat on the throne by systematically killing everyone ahead of him. The film has some stellar performances from Basil Rathbone and Boris Karloff, and we even get a young Vinny Price as the timid Duke of Clarence.
The movie is historically accurate, but of course it embellishes to shock and entertain. The movie is pretty epic and its battle sequences are heralded as some of the greatest ever made; there have been two remakes of this film and instead of reproducing the battles scenes these remakes actually reused the battle footage from this movie.
This movie is strange in the fact that it uses drama to get the "horror" point across. The movie is in no way scary, but I can see how it may have been in the past. There are numerous murders committed by "The Executioner", played by Karloff, but the creepiest part is that 35 year old Richard III has a doll house with figurines that represent everyone who stands in his way. When he has the Executioner kill someone, he removes a doll and throws it in the fire.
The movie shows various ways of medieval death, usually at the hands of the Executioner. The deaths are, however, very tame by todays standards. It is hardly scary and doesn't really have any stand out scenes that stuck with me. In fact I don't see myself watching this movie ever again. Like I said above, the acting is great, but the content is too bland.
For all of its heights (there are a few) and for all of its lows (the majority of the film) the movie pulls in an even score of 4 out of 10. You may want to watch this movie if you are really into historic horror movies, or horror movies with no supernatural element, or fans of Vincent Price; but this movie made me want to fall asleep.
You're a God to Me!
I really like this movie, it has many great actors, a good horror story, and I like the ending. I highly recommend this movie. I also like the remake from the 60s, watch Vincent Price's part in both movies, it's really funny.
