Madhouse ★★ 1974

A troubled horror film star tries to bring his “Dr. Death” character to TV, but during production people begin dying in ways remarkably similar to the script. A strong genre cast should hold the fans' attention during this mild adaptation of Angus Hall's novel “Devilday.” 92m/C VHS, DVD . GB Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, Robert Quarry, Adrienne Corri, Natasha Pyne, Linda Hayden, Michael Parkinson; D: Jim Clark.
