Rating:
PG
Madhouse is a 1974 horror movie directed by Jim Clark. After his fiance is decapitated by an unknown serial killer, Paul Toombes (Vincent Price), an actor famous for his role of Dr. Death, is placed in a mental asylum. Despite his protests about a masked killer, everybody suspects that he may have been the murderer. When the asylum finally releases him, an old friend, Herbert Flay (Peter Cushing), asks him to star in a new television series as Dr. Death. In an attempt to rehabilitate his floundering career, Paul agrees to take the role. When the show starts filming, actors on the set begin to die in ways that are very similar to the murder methods of Dr. Death. As the body count rises, Peter begins to wonder whether or not he is the one doing the killing. Madhouse is a campy horror flick that relies on disturbing camera angles and a suspenseful atmosphere for its chills. Fans of Vincent Price will be delighted to see that this film also contains several scenes from his other popular movies, such as House of Usher and The Pit and the Pendulum.moreless
