The Comedy of Terrors Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

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! [show more]
