Scream and Scream Again

I've always enjoyed the work of director Gordon Hessler regardless of the opinion of those who think he was just another AIP hack. His films are just so off the wall you can't help but get sucked in by them and SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN is the worst of them involiving a swinging psycho who likes to chop up nubile bar patrons, mad scientists, government plots and body snatching and, well, hell, anything else you'd care to throw into the mix. One word of warning, don't be fooled by the "stars' here. Vincent Price and Christopher Lee are only on screen together for a brief time and Peter Cushing does not appear with them which seems a horrid waste to me and as it is they maybe have fifteen minutes combined of total screen time and I most certainly could have done with seeing more of Yutte Stensgaard. Alas, it is a curiosity to say the least and worth a look should the opportunity arise.
