An undertaker who hasn’t had any ‘customers’ in a long time is forced the pay one year’s back-rent. To get money he starts to kill people in order to get new clients.
French born Jacques Tourneur, is the director behind stylish horror-classics like “Cat People”, “I walked with a zombie” and “Night of the demon”! He made “The comedy of terrors” 20 years after “Cat People”, and shows a director with great sense of comedic timing! The cast is wonderful, with a devilishly funny Vincent Price, in maybe a career best, as the drunken scrupulous undertaker! Boris Karlof is great fun as his aging father in law, and Peter Lorre equally funny as Prices partner! Also starring is the wonderful Basil Rathbone as the rich landlord who never dies, and Joyce Jameson as the undertakers neglected wife.
This is maybe the greatest gothic comedy ever! Perfect casting, directing, cinematogrophy and editing! A great classic, and a must see!!!
