Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

From Jacques Tourneur, director of numerous horror classics including Cat People, I Walked with a Zombie and Night of the Demon, comes The Comedy of Terrors – a gleefully macabre tale which brings together genre greats Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff.

Price plays Waldo Trumbull, a perpetually inebriated, down-on-his-luck undertaker who has struck on an interesting way to boost business – by hastening the deaths of those whom he buries. When landlord Mr. Black (Basil Rathbone) threatens to put him out on the street for falling behind with the rent, Trumbull, together with his reluctant and bumbling assistant Felix Gillie (Lorre), hatches an ill-advised plan to “kill two birds with one stone”, so to speak…

The penultimate directorial effort from Tourneur, The Comedy of Terrors bears many of the hallmarks of the master filmmaker’s earlier works, whilst adding a healthy dash of humour to the proceedings. Careful – you might just die laughing!

Comedy of Terrors

This is perfect viewing over the Halloween season for families looking to watch something spooky but lighthearted with their young ones. As always, Arrow do a fantastic job with the presentation of the film and with the extras. Highly recommended.

Just how I remembered

I purchased a few Vincent price films more for memory's than need, I watched them with my mother when I was a kid in the 70's early 80's this film didn't disappoint, just how I remembered it, picture was very clear but some how took away the raw sketchy feel of an oldish film if you know what mean

Funny but sad

So many elderly stars which makes it sad in a way. However they all give sterling performances although they are all put in their places by Basil Rathbone who is brilliant.
