Unusual horror /sci fi/ crime flick that sort of defies description.

Meh low budget horror film about a serial killer who drains his victims' blood and the police who are hot on his trail. The film features horror icons Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing, but they really just have drive-by supporting parts. The acid bath scene featured on the film's poster is memorable and there are some good creepy surgery scenes, but the overall film seemed rather weak.

Absolute garbage... to a degree. This movie is a lot smarter than it seems. It's full of over-the-top dated 1960's music and a barely coherent plot, but it's full of enough charm and star power to make it worth a watch.

Underrated sci-fi mystery thriller.

Directed by Gordon Hessler (The Oblong Box (1969) and Cry of the Banshee (1970)), produced by Amicus Productions for American International Pictures. This sci-fi/thriller/horror is a bit of a confusing hotch-potch of genres, which has far too much going on, it has some good moments but it gets itself tied up in knots. Detective Superintendent Bellaver (Alfred Marks) is investigating the deaths of several girls in the London area, these women picked up at nightclubs are killed by the unstoppable Keith (Michael Gothard). Their investigations lead them to the country house and clinic of Dr. Browning (Vincent Price), who specialises in hand and limb transplants. But he's hiding a dark secret, one which government official Fremont (Christopher Lee) knows about, and so does Major Heinrich Benedek (Peter Cushing). The poster and promotion is very misleading. as it's Marks who's the real star of the film here. Price, Lee and Cushing only have extended cameos. It has a brilliant chase sequence in the middle, but they've crammed too much into this film, including a pointless Eastern European bit.

Great atmosphere, great plot, fair otherwise--Weird, uneven, bizarre, but never boring!!

Decent UK action/thriller. Very late 60's feel, with definate old school Pinewood Studios feel. The two main plots barely come together as one. Worthy if only for the actors.

Great who's who of classic Hammer horror..only undone by unsatisfying ending.

WATCHED THIS ONE WHEN I WAS 14 YEARS OLD AND IT INTRODUCED ME TO PETER CUSHING. YEARS LATER THIS MOVIE IS WHY I LIKE BRITISH HORROR ALOT.

Not great. I expected it to blow my mind with the cast. But their hardly in the flick. Its kind of a silly explanation at the end, which i could let go..............but i expected more.

Yikes...this movie is bad. Bad, bad, bad.

Vincent Price! Christopher Lee! Peter Cushing! Uh.........All three have very little screen time in this film so if that's why you're tuning in (what other reason could there be?) than don't even bother. I do like the jogging opening credits with its ridiculous freeze frame and jazzy 60s score and I found the jogger's diminishing story to be kinda fun, but for the most part Scream and Scream Again is an utter bore until the Pricetastic climax. VF.

Weird craziness, bolstered only by Price, who is unusually malevolent and unhinged in this.

Scream and Scream Again is a truly bizarre and twisted piece of horror cinema that doesn't ultimately work as well as it might have. Still, it is an intensely enjoyable B-Movie featuring Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing--Cushing only appears briefly however. Essentially, the film is a police procedural in which cops try to track down a psycho who has been picking up young women from clubs and killing them. Once they catch the killer, they realize that he is something more than human and something more than a mere psycho--it points to a much larger conspiracy and totalitarianism. Cheesy, crazy, and fun, Scream and Scream Again is not a high point in the career of its actors, but it is still a delightful evening's worth of entertainment for fans of the Corman and Hammer era of horror.

You'd think a movie with 3 horror legends would be great but in the end this was a very disappointing and boring movie. The plotline is very messy indeed, there are a number of occasions when the audience is forced to ask themselves what exactly is going on, and why. The lack of plot shows through at times as the movie features an overlong chase sequence midway through, and ends with a nice, but rather off with the rest of the movie, mad scientist scene. The movie meanders through it's two basic plot lines, but it doesn't fit together well because the stories have very little to do with one another. The 60's swing atmosphere is nice, but it isn't very horrific and doesn't create the best atmosphere for a horror movie. The music isn't very good either, and it throws any chance of capturing a mood of malevolence out of the window and replaces it with a very tacky feel. There's very little to actually scream at...the movie is not scary in the least.

Like an extended bad Hammer, tedious. Nice to see all the great horror actors together, but even they couldnt save this script.

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.
