and make each helpless, pleading victim Scream

Lee, and Peter Cushing
star in this "masterwork of style and suspense"
(Los Angeles Times) about a group of sadistic madmen plotting
to take over the world- One Severed Body Part at a Time!"
- from DVD
I'd heard this movie wasn't very good,
so I dived in not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised!
Starring three of the greatest horror actors of all time,
Lee and Peter Cushing,
one would think it would be a true classic, but I wouldn't
go that far. The fact of the matter is, none of these three
have that much screen time. Peter
Cushing only has one scene, and
Lee only shows up on a few occasions. Price is the one wich
is most involved. Fun to see them all in the same move anyways!
There are several plotlines wich don't appear to have anything
to do with the other wich makes it a bit hard to follow at
times, but they do come together in the end, even though I
wasn't totally satisfied with it all. At least there's a LOT
going on in this flick.. There are some really memorable scenes
like the man in the hospital bed that looses more and more
of his limbs as the movie goes by. That's pure brilliance!
It might not be a very good/well made movie, but it does deliver
when it comes to entertainment! I didn't feel bored at any
time during this one, and it was a twisted and interesting
ride to the end (despite it's shortcomings). I was a bit disappointed
about the small parts Lee and Cushing were involved in, but
hey, it's better then nothing.
Don't think everyone will, but I certainly liked it!
