Summary: Welcome to The Theatre Of Death in Paris, where a troupe of young actors specialize in gore-drenched Grand Guignol plays directed by the cruel and domineering Philippe Darvas (Christopher Lee). But when a series of horrific murders plague the city, the trail of bodies leads directly to the theater and its cast of the damned. Is the sinister Darvas responsible for the gruesome crimes, or is the stage set for an even more ghastly surprise?
Note: - This film - a mix of murder mystery and vampiric horror - is a rare example of a British horror title from the 60s that didn't come from either the Hammer or Amicus studios.
- Cameraman Gilbert Taylor worked with some of the best directors in the business: Alfred Hitchcock's "Frenzy", Roman Polanski's "Repulsion" and "Cul-De-Sac", George Lucas' "Star Wars", Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" etc.
