Madhouse 1974
The last bona fide horror star vehicle for Vincent Price, this co-production between British horror specialists Amicus Productions and U.S. drive-in king AIP is often regarded as a swan song of sorts for the type of horror films being usurped at the time by more savage fare.

Years after retiring his famous Dr. Death character, actor Paul Toombes (Price) is eager to get on with his career in a decidedly no-horrific direction, especially after his wife gets her head lopped off during a showbiz New Year's Eve party. Now after extensive therapy he's back on his feet and reluctantly agreeing to reprise his most famous character in a British TV series, but someone starts killing off people involved in the production while wearing a creepy skull mask and brandishing a nasty knife. Among the suspects are the arrogant producer Oliver Quayle (Quarry, who nods to his most famous role in Count Yorga, Vampire during the costume party scene) and Paul's writer, Herbert (Cushing), who once nursed dreams of acting stardom himself. However, Paul starts to think that perhaps he is responsible for the murders himself... and Dr. Death might be more than just a fictional character.
