Trivia

Parts of the Keith (Michael Gothard) versus Police car chase were filmed not on a public highway, but using the Alpine Circuit at Millbrook test track, often featured in motoring magazines and programs. It would be used again for the car pursued by motorcycle sequence in segment four, "Wish You Were Here", in Tales from the Crypt (1972). See more »

Alternate Versions

British prints of SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN have small differences than AIP's American Theatrical cut, with the American version removing Bellaver clumsily throwing a stone at the speedy cliff-climbing super-human Keith, and a bottle-swigging old drunk peeping at Keith and Sylvia fooling around in the convertible. The final shot of the British print is also different, with the credits scrolling over a long shot of Dr. Browning's lab heard over soundtrack music, rather than on the American print which has the credits being presented over a black screen with The Amen Corner's "Scream and Scream Again" playing. One thing omitted from the American version is a brief but significant dialogue exchange between Vincent Price and Christopher Lee: "But what of the dream?" asks Price. "There is only nightmare" replies Lee). See more »

Scream at the Screen Again!
6 December 2004 | by trouserpressSee all my reviews

What a film! I feel slightly cheated that Vincent Price, Chris Lee and Peter Cushing were given top billing, as their total screen time probably adds up to about fifteen minutes. At least Cushing's cameo lasted longer and was slightly more interesting than his role in Dr Phibes Rises Again.

I was watching the film wondering when these completely separate plot lines were going to be drawn together. I waited... and waited... and waited some more... And finally it did! Sort of. What a bizarre film. But strangely enjoyable nonetheless. I would love to have seen each story have it's own movie though, rather than being stitched precariously together. Still, any film that gets that cast list together deserves attention, even if it does feature a theme tune from popular beat combo The Amen Corner!
