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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic British Horror February 7, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was raised on British horror 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1970's horror with a REAL 3d section. May 10, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Splatter in 3D! March 19, 2014
"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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3-D climax IS on the a hidden Easter Egg. February 1, 2008
The anaglyphic 3-D (red/green glasses work best) climax IS included on the DVD, but for some reason, it's hidden as an Easter Egg. However, it is easily found in the special features menu; it won't take you more than a few seconds to find it! Strange they didn't advertise this on the disc cover, as it certainly wouldn't have hurt sales.

Shriek Show, a division of Media Blasters, provides us with another entry from The Pete Walker Collection, this one titled The Flesh and Blood Show (1974) aka Asylum of the Insane, directed by Pete Walker (House of Whipcord, Frightmare, Schizo), who considered himself an outsider within the British film industry, and featuring performances by Jenny Hanley (Scars of Dracula), Tristan Rogers (Four Dimensions of Greta), and Patrick Barr (The Satanic Rites of Dracula). Also appearing is Ray Brooks (House of Whipcord), Luan Peters (Twins of Evil), Judy Matheson (Crucible of Terror), Candace Glendenning (Tower of Evil), Penny Meredith (Night Train to Murder), David Howey (Cellar), and Robin Askwith (Horror Hospital), probably best know as the character Timothy Lea from the English `Confessions of...' softcore films.

As the film begins we learn of a group of actors hired to perform some kind of stage production, to which they're all supposed to go to a small English coastal town and rehearse in a gloomy, old, abandoned theater on the end of a deserted pier. As far as those attending there's Jane (Matheson) and her busty, blonde flat mate Carol (Peters), John (Howey), who's a bit of a prankster, an Australian actor named Tony (Rogers), Simon (Askwith), Angela (Meredith), Julia (Hanley), an up and coming film actress looking for some stage experience, and Mike (Brooks), who was hired on as a producer and director. Most everyone arrives about the same time, and after some introductions they all decide to settle in for the night at the theater since the local hotel is closed due to the fact it's the off season.
