Critics reviews

Spectacularly nasty, grindingly repetitive – but some of the sadism is memorable (poodles à la “Titus Andronicus”, Vincent Price performing impromptu head surgery with lipstick, saw and scalpel), and besides it comes with the imprimatur of Shakespeare himself (a sick fuck, on this evidence) so it can’t be wrong.
