Theater of Blood begins with deadly scenes from silent films that look like Shakespeare stories. A pound of flesh is cut out from Merchant of Venice. A duel is fierce from Romeo and Juliet, and Othello is tricked into murdering his wife. Theater of Blood reveals that Shakespeare’s plays are filled with characters blinded by earthly desires. When a real drama begins, a man faces death surrounded by people. It is Edward, a Shakespearean actor, who ignites the collective murder. After losing a prominent actor award, he decides to seek revenge on the critics responsible, basing his killings on violent scenes from Shakespearean plays. With sarcasm on art with cult-like imaginations, and Vincent Price’s unique style of acting, the campy killing spree is turned into a sort of festivity. (LEE Sang-yong)
