SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN (1970) (PERMANENT PRICE REDUCTION) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Christopher Lee, Alfred Marks, Peter Cushing, Judy Huxtable, Michael Gothard, Vincent Price
Directed By:  Gordon Hessler
Composed By:  David Whitaker

“Achieves a uniquely nightmarish quality…holds your attention because of its barmy plotting, unexpected twists, and deep suspicion of the authorities, which feeds the general air of paranoia. A true original.” – Graeme Clark, The Spinning Image

“With its ambitious structure, intriguing premise, and prevailing sense of paranoia, Scream and Scream Again is a fascinating film.” –TV Guide

Kind of a horror movie, kind of an espionage film, and in some sense a piece of science fiction, Scream and Scream Again (1970) features turns by three icons of the horror genre: Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing. All are involved in a wild “plot” connecting Great Britain to some unnamed totalitarian state where torture, murder, and out-of-control “experiments” are the order of the day. Directed by Gordon Hessler from a screenplay by Christopher Wicking, with cinematography by the worthy John Coquillon.

A DISAPPOINTMENT TO SAY THE LEAST

A copy of this title was provided for review purposes.

How could you go wrong with a horror film that proclaims Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Vincent Price all starring in the same film? Well the makers of this movie tried to do whatever they could wrong and have succeeded. A true disappointment for horror fans. I tried to like this one the first time I saw it and did again this time around. Both times left me wondering what they were thinking.

The plot put simply involves a serial killer who is draining the blood of his victims in London. The police track him down to the home of an eccentric scientists. From there more plotlines evolve including a top secret organization that plans on conquering the world with a superhuman race of beings they’ve created. Tossed in are sequences in some Eastern European fascists state and various governmental groups in England and you have a mish mash of storylines that makes the movie confusing at best and nonsensical at worst. The story is so convoluted that you wonder just who is with or against who from scene to scene.

Perhaps the most terrible thing about this movie is that the three icons of horror included here are so utterly wasted it makes it apparent their inclusion was done just to sell tickets. Cushing has what amounts to a cameo appearance as does Lee. Price, a great actor when given the part, hams it up with a role that gets enough to not qualify as a cameo but isn’t enough to get star billing either. The fact that they don’t perform together also doesn’t help this film.

I’ve been stunned to find reviews where people have actually said they liked this film. For the most part horror fans have had little good to say about it over the years and the odds are that isn’t likely to change with this version being made available.

Twilight Time has done their best to make this THE version you want to own but my suggestion would be that only fans invest the time and money for this one. While Twilight Time has done a great job on the extras I found them to be more interesting than the movie itself. Included are:
-An Isolated Score Track
-Audio Commentary with Film Historians David Del Valle and Tim Sullivan
-Gentleman Gothic: Gordon Hessler at AIP
-An Interview with Uta Levka
-A Still Gallery
-Radio Spots
-The Original Theatrical Trailer
