Editorial Reviews

A group of trendy young actors and actresses assemble at a run-down theatre at the end of a pier in an out-of-season British coastal resort. Hired by the mysterious Theatre Group 40 to put together the improvisation revue, The Flesh and Blood Show, the actors are soon at the mercy of a madman who begins working his way through their number.

I was raised on British horror films...my mom born in England...loved Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Boris Karloff, etc. This one is a classic from England. There is a different feel to British horror...much more depth, sound and dialogue. This is a little campy and is dark in spots, but the editing and sound is perfect. You must love 70s horror to appreciate it. These types of films required acting...not so much of the special effects. I loved it.

"The Flesh and Blood Show" is British director Pete Walker's 1972 homage to the blood-splattered, grisly stage illusions of the Grand Guignol. In a set-up that would be repeated in "Friday the 13th" eight years later and countless horror films thereafter, a group of young people gather together in one place and are bumped off, one by one. Several actors are hired to take part in rehearsals for a free-form psychedelic play at a run-down theatre at the end of a seaside pier.

The actors don't realize that, back in 1944, after a production of "Othello," the leading man, motivated by jealousy, left his unfaithful wife and her lover to die in the dark recesses of the theatre.

The theatrical setting is pretty cool and reminded me of Vincent Price's "Theatre of Blood." Walker provides plenty of gore as assorted characters meet their end by blood-splattered means. Fans of graphic horror flicks will enjoy the over-the-top sequences. More squeamish viewers would do well to steer clear of this picture and seek less violent fare.

The last scene of the movie was shot in 3D and is presented in the Blu-ray edition in two 3D formats -- the stereoscopic format (requiring a 3D TV) and the anaglyph system (requiring red & blue 3D glasses). Unfortunately, no 3D glasses are included, so you're on your own trying to find them. The sequence is also presented in conventional 2D. An interview with director Pete Walker in included.

I collect 3d films so I had to have this one. It was shot in 2d , but the ending was shot in 3d. this like all of redemption blu rays is not restored , the print is the same from the dvd that I owned. Only this provides you with more clarity because it's a blu ray. The print is not that bad though. similar to other movies that are from this era and there are no huge scratches on it. The 3d in this is both blu ray 3d , in which you need a 3d tv and anaglyth , 3d which was done with paper glasses. Most 3d films were not anaglyth though. but you get your choice here. Pete walker was making decent horror shock films during the seventies and this is one of them. This however , is from the 70's , not the 80's when gore was the rule. It was risqué for it's time in the states and England. But I like old horror so it's good for me. A viewer who expects 80's onward horror should realize that censors controlled the world even in the 70's. Pete walker did what he could at the time. ANd he always made fun films that lately have been far more critically approved of than when they came out! That's because they are fun films and not all that bad at all! So if you like 70's grindhouse horror , then any pete walker film is for you! The plot? well someone is killing people , and you can understand it as it has a storyline. Now if only this company would put out 'frankenstien 3d' from this era!

Pete Walker is one of my favorite British directors and this film does not disappoint when it comes to delivering the blood and gore. there is even a 10-minute 3-D sequence that was added later in the film's release (glasses not included and you have to have a 3-D capable HD TV), but you can watch the footage without using the 3-D option. The story may seem like old hat now, but back in 1972, this was pretty original. This is 70's horror at its finest and people who enjoy such films should have a good time with this one.

"The Flesh and Blood Show" (1972) is directed by Pete Walker. The film is about a group of young actors who are staying in an old theatre and auditioning for a play, but someone is out to kill them one by one. This film is rather straight forward and banal until we get to the latter part of the film, which can be watched in 2D or 3D, where we are transported into the world of a demented actor and we see what he sees. This flips the movie on its head and becomes quite interesting from this point until the end.
This particular blu-ray does not appear to have been remastered and there are many instances of dust on the film. The 10 minute 3D sequence is actually separate from the feature film and appears in the special features section along with other special features, including a 12 minute interview with the director.
