Bloodbath AT THE HOUSE OF DEATH (Ray Cameron, 1984) **Reviewed byBunuel1976Vote: 5/10

Although his name was known to me, I do not think that I had seen any of British comic Kenny Everett's TV routines except the motorcyclists bit where Freddie Mercury guested – which I only caught up with in the first place when I was going through my obligatory Queen phase following their flamboyant frontman's death in 1991. Reading up on him now, I realize that Everett also died of AIDS in 1995, was gay (despite having been married for a spell) and was very close to Mercury during the early 1980s before they had a falling out that was eventually patched up once both tested positive to the terminal disease! I have gone into all this detail because, whatever I might think of the film proper, I liked Everett's personality in what was his sole foray into cinema (aided by the crew of his own TV show) and, in hindsight, the veritable last gasp of British horror that had been kick-started by Hammer Films back in 1955! Incidentally, Vincent Price only appears in it as "The Sinister Man" in sequences spoofing his own earlier performance in Roger Corman's classic Poe-inspired chiller THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (1964) and gets unceremoniously told to "Piss Off" – a retort he swiftly returns – by a fellow female fanatic irritated by his condescending comments in one of the film's biggest laugh-out-loud moments.

Apart from that one, a great number of movies are spoofed: CITY OF THE DEAD (1960; the burning Satanists), THE HAUNTING (1963; gay longings in a haunted house), THE EXORCIST (1973; an unrelated victim gets her head turned 360 degrees and subsequently beheaded by a can opener, not to mention a newspaper bearing the side-splitting headline – "Exorcist: 'I Blew It!'" – in connection with the opening mass murder sequence!), THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE (1973; ditto), JAWS (1975; another hilarious bit has Everett playing John Williams' classic theme on the violin while on the toilet – whereas the audience is all the time being led to believe that something ominous is about to take place!), THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (1975; Everett is revealed to be a misunderstood and crippled Nazi scientist); CARRIE (1976; Everett's lisping bespectacled female companion recalls her repressed childhood days at the mercy of her religious fanatic – and confessional-wearing – mother!), STAR WARS (1977; another victim is unaccountably felled by a light-sabre!), ALIEN (1979; Everett exhibits all of John Hurt's chest-busting symptoms only to relieve his discomfort by letting out a loud hearty belch!), THE AMITYVILLE HORROR (1979; the water taps produce blood), Friday THE 13TH (1980; the afore-mentioned prologue bloodbath takes place on Thursday 12th?"give or take a day"!), AN American WEREWOLF IN London (1981; the inhospitable pub punters are first stunned into silence by Everett's appearance on the scene with his fly wide open and then get together in a sing-a-long about the old ghastly happenings when none of them get to agree on the number of victims), etc. The finale, then, has the entire household of parapsychologists being eliminated and replaced by conjured-up doppelgangers.

Not quite a bloodbath or a laugh-fest; but fun enoughReviewed byThe_VoidVote: 7/10

This completely bizarre horror-comedy is notable for a few reasons; mostly due to the fact that it features a late performance from the great Vincent Price and because it stars British comedian Kenny Everett. The humour is something of a mixed bag, as the film attempts to get laughs from a range of places; and doesn't always succeed. Some of the humour is absolutely pitch black to the point where I wasn't sure if I was supposed to laugh or not, while other areas of the movie are really stupid and overall, not much of it fits together nicely. The film does manage a few moments of hilarity, however, most notably the discussions about the deaths at the central location in a local pub and a great scene that sees Kenny Everett's doctor operating on a patient. The plot follows a group of scientists that travel to a house known as 'Headstone Manor', which is infamous for the savage murders that took place there some years earlier. The house is also inhabited by a group of satanic monks that won't sleep until they have purged the house of its unwelcome guests.

As you would expect; the film is at it's strongest during the scenes that include the great Vincent Price, but this is also one of the problems as there aren't enough of them. I don't know if director Ray Cameron simply couldn't afford to have Price in the film more, but Bloodbath at the House of Death would have been a better film if he could. Kenny Everett manages to keep things ticking over when Price isn't around, however, and the comedian does well in providing the film with most of its laughs. I'm not sure how into horror the director and lead star are as the film is mostly played out for laughs; but there is time to include some delicious horror elements. The central location is a nice play on the common 'haunted house' theme, and the house itself is dark, ominous and features numerous rooms. For a film with the word 'Bloodbath' in the title, there isn't a lot of gore; and this is slightly disappointing after the first sequence, which features a fair amount of it. Overall, this is undoubtedly a disjointed effort and not everything works, but it's a fun film and things such as the nods to classic films like Star Wars and The Evil Dead are nice.

Priceless Price & Everett comedyReviewed byjvframeVote: 7/10

A group of psychics and ghosthunters return to remote Headstone Manor on the anniversary of a ritualistic mass murder by mysterious monks.

I'm pleased to see only good comments registered on Bloodbath At The House Of Death, because it's one of my favourites. Favoured not for it's technical merit, but for the absolute dedication to Kenny's unique style of comedy - where no joke was either too obvious or too tasteless to be included.

Some of these jokes are supremely tasteless, for example the young woman who offers her bared breasts to the mad monk as he threatens her with a knife: "You want these, don't you?" and then she screams "Oh my god, did you say "To take away?!".

Vincent Price has a very good time as the very Sinister Man.

I was lucky to see this on the big screen here in Australia and I also considered myself lucky to have bought an ex-rental VHS years ago. However there are quite a few dark scenes which VHS tape simply cannot reproduce with adequate definition.

2011 update: In July 2008 a DVD was officially release in the UK and I am very impressed. The video and audio quality are first class (the video transferred from the original negative).

Now we get to enjoy Bloodbath in its original theatrical aspect 1.85:1 - with none of the limitations mentioned for the VHS version. The extra features are valuable - including a pdf file of the script, the UK and USA trailers, and a wonderful, highly informative 22 minute retrospective documentary. I loved seeing snippets of Kenny in Australia promoting the film - and enjoyed learning the background story of how this magnificent purposefully B grade film sadly missed getting the exposure and wide success which it truly deserved.

Twenty five years after the limited cinematic release the world has a second chance to embrace "Bloodbath At The House Of Death" as one of the all-time great kitsch cult classics.
