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.
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.
