Trailer 857 of 895
Every creative artist's favorite anti-critic movie, as poorly reviewed Shakespearean actor Edward Lionheart gruesomely avenges himself on those who panned him. Probably the classiest of Vincent Price's late career vehicles, in which he's supported by the cream of British character actor royalty. Beautifully shot by Wolfgang Suzchitzky with a memorably contrapuntal romantic score by Michael J. Lewis, nuanced direction by Douglas Hickcox and a wittily literate script by Anthony Greville-Bell. Similar to Price's Dr. Phibes murder sprees, but far less cartoony and more emotionally affecting. Apologies for the poor quality of this trailer (with Danish subtitles yet) but it's the only one we could find in the correct ratio with the narration intact.

I first heard of this movie my first semester in college when my French instructor used her having seen it on TV the previous weekend to form an example sentence. I think I probably saw it on the same show a year or two later (although not uncut) and agreeing it was pretty good for an early '70s low-budget sci-fi movie, certainly a step above something like Track of the Moon Beast or The Blood Waters of Dr...

I had the fortune of seeing Poison Ivy in the theatre (albeit a second-run dollar theatre) during its original release. I think I saw a trailer for it at a showing of Bill Duke's Deep Cover, and I think Poison Ivy only played for a week first-run...
