Here's another positive review:

I'd like to hear if anyone here has seen it.  I hope it comes to the
USA, Theatre of Blood is my favorite Shakespeare film.  It is often
called "camp."  It's also technically bad, an least unbalanced.  For
example the variably adequate then bad interior lighting.  Hard to
imagine anyone but Vincent Price in the lead, he had the rare ability to
be scary and funny by force of his interpretation.
