Dr Tremayne is an enigmatic Psychiatrist running a Futuristic asylum housing four very special cases. 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.

Freddie Francis directed a lot of the best omnibus films that Amicushad to offer; but unfortunately, this isn't one of them. It would seemthat the studio was running out of ideas after the likes of The Housethat Dripped Blood and The Vault of Horror, as every story in this filmfeels like an afterthought. The wraparound revolves around a mentalhome, where Doctor Tremayne is showing someone around his variouspatients. We then get treated to the story behind how they all gotthere. These films normally start off with a lacklustre tale, and thisone is no different as the first features a young kid with a tiger.Nothing particularly of note for this tale, except for the fact thatyou'll be hoping it gets better. It does, but only slightly. The secondstory is completely stupid and also rather boring as we follow anantique store owner who gets a penny farthing bicycle and finds thatit's a time machine and he can go back into the past, under thewatchful eye of a painting of 'Uncle Albert'. Again, there's nothingparticularly of note here and the way it plods out is far frominteresting.

The third tale is undoubtedly the best, and is the weird story of a manwho falls in love with a tree stump. Aside from the obvious fact thatyou simply wouldn't bring an old piece of wood into the house (even ifyou are in a film about madness), this story is pretty good; it's funnyenough and interesting in all the right places. It's not enough to savethe film in its own right, but had all the segments been as good asthis one; Tales That Witness Madness would have been a decent film. Thefinal tale is extremely tedious and succeeds only in bring a slow endto the movie. The final tale follows a weird bloke who is involved insome kind of devilish sorcery. I know I won't remember what happenedfor long. These films almost always conclude their wraparound stories,and Tales That Witness Madness is no exception. However, like the restof the film; the conclusion to the wraparound feels a lot like anafterthought and doesn't succeed in bringing any intrigue to a filmseverely lacking in it. Overall, Tales that Witness Madness featuresone decent story and three limp ones, and Amicus have certainly done alot better.

Creepy British movie has four scary tales about an invisible man eatingtiger, a picture that comes alive, a tree that is alive and the last andworst one is about voodoo. Joan Collins is great as a woman fighting for herhusband's affection over a tree! The tiger and the picture episodes are goodtoo. Altogether a good creepy movie .
