#76 - Madhouse

One of my favorite Price films, mainly because he shares so much screentime with the great Peter Cushing. This is a Price essential.




Vincent Price stars as Paul Toombes, a famous horror actor best known for his signature role, Dr. Death. At a wrap party for his latest film his fiance is murdered by someone dressed as Dr. Death. Toombes, distraught, is placed in a mental hospital. Now, years later, he is released from the institution and planning a comeback. But once again bodies begin to pile up, as someone has it out for Paul Toombes. Also stars Peter Cushing, Robert Quarry, and Adrienne Corri.
