Editorial Reviews

Stroll down the corridors of a mental asylum, where your mind won't believe what your eyes see. In the tradition of Tales from the Crypt and Creepshow, this anthology of pulp horror tales, helmed by the ever-reliable horror master, Freddie Francis (Dr. Terror's House of Horrors). The film features a quartet of eerie vignettes involving four patients in the care of psychiatrist Donald Pleasance (Halloween), who's attempting to justify his strange theories to colleague, Jack Hawkins (Theatre of Blood). The all-star cast includes Kim Novak, Joan Collins, Peter McEnery and Suzy Kendall.

Customer Reviews

Tales That Witness Madness is nothing but a very weak imitator.
Joe Smart
By the time you are half-way into the second story you know just how this movie will end.
Paul Slopak Jr.
I LOVE all the horror anthology pictures made by both Amicus and Hammer studios .

Fans of "THE TWILIGHT ZONE", "TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE", and other horror anthologies will relish this ghoulishly entertaining four part horror film. The movie opens at an asylum in England run by Donald Pleasance who has just recently solved four fascinating cases. This leads to the four patients relating in flashbacks the shocking stories that led them to be brought to the asylum. The first tale, "Mr. Tiger", is about a boy who introduces his bickering parents to his IMAGINARY pet tiger. In "Penny Farthing", an old-fashioned bicycle sends its owner back in time to unveil a horrible crime. The third and best segment, "Mel", stars the beautiful and sexy Joan Collins as a housewife who finds herself competing with her husband's beloved pet tree! And the fourth and final segment, "Luau", is a riveting tale of voodoo and cannibalism featuring Kim Novak as a mother who is better off not knowing what's for dinner. A crazy compilation, but each tale is well-presented and strangely entertaining. A must for fans of way-out horror films. Directed by Freddie Francis reponsible for another equally creepy '70's mystery/horror anthology movie, the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT.

Until some months ago , when i streamed this fun little anthology , i had forgotten it even existed . I LOVE all the horror anthology pictures made by both Amicus and Hammer studios . Agreed , some are better than others and several titles have quite modest charms to recommend them . With this release , the United States has only the wonderful DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS yet to be released on dvd/bd in our region 1 format . These various films are seldom actually very scary by today's standards . They have history , assorted constaints , casts , writers , directors and so forth distilled into each delightful time capsule though . If retro horror fun IS your cup of tea ?

TALES THAT WITNESS MADNESS brings us four tales of terror, helmed by reputable horror director Freddie Francis and released in 1973. HALLOWEEN's Donald Pleasance and the venerable British legend JACK HAWKINS frame the four tales with some kind of gibberish about Pleasance finding out the horrible "secrets" of four mental patients. The first is a little boy whose invisible tiger takes an intense dislike to his bickering parents (including Broadway's Georgia Brown in a surprisingly banal performance); Peter McEnery and Suzy Kendall fare a little better in the muddled, but spooky, tale of a bicycle that takes McEnery into the past, for what purpose, I never figured out; sultry Joan Collins and the bland Michael Jayston (NICHOLAS AND ALEXANDRA) play out a two-character drama about a wife jealous of her husband's new found "tree"; and the ever lovely Kim Novak overemotes her way through a lurid tale about human sacrifice and a particularly disturbing luau. More imaginative direction and some recasting might have made this a classic; however, as it is, it's fun to recapture the style of these horror movies of the 70s. Note that the score was done by Bernard Ebbinghouse, who helmed the Living Strings for several years in the 70s.

TALES THAT WITNESS MADNESS opens w/ a doctor (Donald Pleasance) introducing his colleague to the patients in a mental institution. Of course, each patient has a story, since this is an anthology film. The first story concerns Paul, a boy w/ an imaginary friend named Mr. Tiger. This friend is very hungry, and wants lots of meat and bones. Paul's mum and dad aren't getting along, making Mr. Tiger quite cross. Any guesses as to how this one ends up? Story number two is about Timothy, a man who inherits a load of antiques, including a strange picture of his uncle from his late Aunt's estate. The picture seems to be alive, and possesses great mystical powers. Timothy finds himself in a terrible situation involving time travel. Next, we meet Brian, a man who drags home a bizarre, woman-shaped tree from the forest. His wife (Joan Collins from TALES FROM THE CRYPT and EMPIRE OF THE ANTS) hates it, but Brian puts it in the living room, and becomes obsessed w/ it! Jealousy ensues. This leads to an inevitable showdown. Ms. Collins is her usual, awesome self! Finally, we are shown what happened to one last patient, named Oriole (Kim Novak). She plans a big surprise party for a friend. Unfortunately, ancient superstition turns the party into a hideous ritual of terror! The wrap-around story concludes w/ the usual, traditional twist. Though the last two segments are my favorites, I do like the whole movie. Very enjoyable...

If you are a fan of the original movie "Tales from the Crypt" or "Vault of Horror," then you cannot afford to miss Tales That Witness Madness. First off the bevy of beautiful women is enough to enjoy with Kim Novak, Joan Collins and Suzy Kendall. Then you have the director, Freddie Francis (Tales from the Crypt and Dracula has Risen from the Grave) who lends a Hammer feel to all the tales. These tales are a bit mild compared to what is out there now, but they have a tremendous sense of fun and smarts to them. Add to all of this Donald Pleasance and Jack Hawkins and you have a minor classic for us horror fans.
