|In many ways, Madhouse is a similar vehicle to Price's 1973 masterpiece Theatre of Blood.
Paul Toombes (Price) is a washed up horror movie actor best known for playing a character named "Dr. Death."
After a nervous breakdown and an absence from work for over a decade, Toombes is hoping he can make a comeback on TV.
Oops. Bad timing. Seems a strange killer in a skull mask is offing various people in *exactly* the same ways from Vinnie's earlier career highlights.
Not a good omen for Toombes' supposed return! Could the maniacal killer be the already-slightly-unhinged Toombes? If not, who's really the madman?
As always, Price is a pleasure to watch, and Cushing provides excellent support here. And if this one is a bit more convoluted than Theatre of Blood, it still maintains moderate interest, some tense moments, and a few sassy killings!
