The Tower of London 1962 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Tower of London was Roger Corman’s shot at doing a Shakespear picture. Of course the star of the film is the infamous Vincent Price, playing Richard III. The film is in black and white, which gives it a different feel, for most of Corman’s films are very colorful.
Richard III’s (Vincent Price) oldest brother, King Edward, has recently passed away, leaving the thrown to his oldest son. Richard III and his brother are the keepers of the prince and his younger brother, and Richard III’s brother is asked to look after them. Extremely offended by this Richard III betrays his brother by violently murdering him. After becoming the watcher of the children, Richard III is visited by the ghost of his brother, prophesizing Richard III’s awful fate.
Pretty much the whole film is Richard III slaughtering anyone in his way to get his power, and is later tortured by the spirits of his victims. A very long and boring film, however the ending is very entertaining. There are a few scenes where Richard III is completely losing his mind that I really enjoy. A decent Vincent Price film, far from his best. Like all of his films however, if you’re looking for a scare, stay far, far away from Vincent. But, if you’re looking to be greatly entertained by a great horror actor, this movie is all for you.
