Summary:
 
Hammy Shakespearean actor, Edward Lionheart (Vincent Price), becomes enraged after failing to win a prominent acting award and decides to seek revenge on the critics responsible. This he does in a delicious manner - killing them in methods featured in the works of the Bard. Highly camp, horror-comedy film starring a distinguished cast including Harry Andrews, Coral Browne, Jack Hawkins, Ian Hendry, Michael Hordern, Arthur Lowe, Joan Hickson, Robert Morley, Milo O'Shea, Diana Dors and Dennis Price.  Diana Rigg, who considered this as her best film, also stars as Lionheart's daughter Edwina.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"The magnum opus of Vincent Price's film career, this stylish, witty comedy horror boasts an irresistible premise, an inspired ensemble cast, fabulous music and first-rate production values."  (Alan Jones - Radio Times)
