&quot Circus of Horrors&quot has always been one of my favorite horror films. From its very beginning when the disfigured woman confronts her face in the mirror and belts out a deranged scream of &quot Rossiter! Rossiter!&quot it grabs you by the throat in an outrageous melodramatic way. The entire movie has an off-kilter nightmare quality to it, reaching its zenith at the eponymous circus of horrors that Rossiter, Anton Diffring, creates in France. Tame by today's standards compared to horror fare like &quot Saw&quot and &quot Hostel,&quot it nevertheless ratchets up the suspense when performers in the circus start dying horribly. Anton Diffring has a field day as the psychotic plastic surgeon Rossiter who becomes progressively more unhinged as he has to commit more and more murders to protect his true identity and save his skin. &quot Theatre of Death&quot is a fine atmospheric horror tale starring Christopher Lee as the sadistic director of a Parisian actors' troupe. I wouldn't call it scary, but it's strong on atmosphere and hence enjoyable.
