Critic Reviews for Tower of London
Audience Reviews for Tower of London
Starts off a little slow, but quickly starts piling on the deaths and ghosts. Combine that with Price chewing scenery and you have an entertaining film. 3 1/2 stars
A king makes his own destiny. Richard the III has a strong ambition to become the king of England. In the process of his climb, he kills his brother and several others that threaten his ambition. He is not the rightful owner of the thrown and there will be people that try to bring him down. As he decides how to handle those who would have his crown, ghosts from his evil deeds haunt him. "My brother's blood..." "Blood washes away." Roger Corman, director of House of Usher, The Little Shop of Horrors, The Raven, The Terror, The Tomb of Ligeia, The Haunted Place, and Pit and the Pendulum, delivers Tower of London. The storyline for this picture is very interesting and the special effects created for the ghosts were perfect and entertaining. The acting is very good and I adored Price's performance. The cast also includes Michael Pate, Richard Hale, Robert Brown, and Joan Freeman. "What type of man are you that can live with such evil on your conscious." I DVR'd this picture this Halloween off Turner Classic Movies (TCM). I always DVR as many Vincent Price and Peter Cushing pictures as possible and I was surprised that I had never seen this. I am surprised the reviews for this picture are so low. This is one of the better Price films I have seen in some time. I thought his acting was excellent and the movie was definitely worthwhile. I do recommend seeing this picture. "They wanted me to join them." Grade: B+/A-
This is a remake of the 30s movie of the same name, which also has Vincent Price, but in a different role, ironically he plays the guy who killed his character in the original. I like both movies, but Price is the main character in this one. The story is good, and the actors are great. I really like this movie.
