Visited by colleague Nicholas, Tremayne explains his amazing and controversial theories as to why each of the four patients went mad... cue four distinct tales each with a different set of characters: 'Mr Tiger' tells of Paul, the sensitive and troubled young son of prosperous but constantly bickering and unlovely parents, and the boy's 'imaginary' friend, a tiger. 'Penny Farthing' tells of Timothy, an antique store owner propelled backwards in time by a penny-farthing bicycle in his shop, all the while being watched over by the constantly changing photograph of Uncle Albert, which endangers the lives of both Timothy and his beautiful wife, Ann.

Tales That Witness Madness (1973)

** (out of 4)

In a futuristic asylum, Dr. Tremayne (Donald Pleasence) is talking toanother doctor (Jack Hawkins) about four of his most troubled patients.As they're each introduced we hear their story of how they went mad. Upfirst we have a young boy who has an imaginary friend who just happensto be a tiger but his mother doesn't believe him. Up next is a man whoowns an antique shop and goes back in time due to a penny-farthingbike. The third story involves a man who finds a human-shaped tree andbrings it home, which doesn't sit well with his wife. The final storyinvolves a man who needs a human sacrifice to protect the soul of hismother. TALES THAT WITNESS MADNESS was directed by Freddie Francis andwas just one of many anthology tales that were released during thisera. While none of the four stories are awful, it's quite clear thatnone of them are very good either. The biggest problem is that all fourstories just never reach a very interesting level and the majority ofthe time you're just sitting there not really caring what's going on.With that said, each story usually has at least one or two good partsno matter how bland the rest is. The fourth story is probably theweakest but there's a murder sequence that is quite brutal. The thirdstory is laughable but there's a tree attack sequence that really seemsto have been lifted by THE EVIL DEAD years later. The film does featurea pretty good cast, including Joan Collins but in the end not even theycan save the material. There's no question that this was trying to getin on the TALES FROM THE CRYPT craze but it's too bad that thescreenplay lets everyone down.

Dull anthology wastes a good castReviewed byhighwaytouristVote: 3/10

Perhaps people were more easily scared in those days. Why else would anyone think that any of these stories would generate much suspense? It's like watching a 1970's Movie of the Week rather than a motion picture, with the exception of the brief topless scene Joan Collins does. Oh, there is a little creepy atmosphere, and a number of capable stars do what they can with the material. But even in its best scenes, the film plays like a substandard "Asylum" knockoff. I know that I was disappointed. There were a number of such films during the 1970's and very few of them delivered much to its audience, which is probably why they don't make many of them anymore. The most recent attempt was "Tales From The Darkside." The formula still has the potential for a good movie, but this isn't it.

This stylish horror anthology, made by the same guy who directed theequally effective TALES FROM THE CRYPT a year before, packs a real punch.Each of the four stories are ghoulish and chillingly memorable. The first,MR. TIGER, concerns a little boy who introduces his feuding parents to his"imaginary" tiger. The second, PENNY FARTHING, is about an old-fashionedbicycle which sends its new owner back in time to unveil a sinister crime.The third, MEL(My favorite), has the beautiful and sexy Joan Collinsstruggling to keep her husband's wandering eyes on her and her alone. Thetwist is her competition is a tree!!!!! The fourth and final segment, LUAU,is a grisly tale of murder and voodoo rites. Truthfully, the last segment,even though it's the goriest, is probably the weakest, and is notablemainlyfor the presence of the lovely and talented Kim Novak(VERTIGO) whose firstfilm this was in four years. But each tale is worth viewing, and goodfun!
