0 Love It
Cult camp horror, with Price in fine fettle as a disfigured composer devising murders based on the ten curses of Pharaoh to avenge himself on the doctors who let his wife die on the operating table. Often amusing, occasionally sickening, always impressive for the imaginative Art Deco sets, it's pretty flatly directed, despite memorable images like the opening shot of Price hunched as manically as the Phantom of the Opera over a Hammond organ in a black plastic cowl.

A wonderfully giddy head trip, filled with enough hokey ghoulishness and memorable imagery to keep even the most gaded viewer entertained.
