Product Description

The story revolves around a 19th century theatre troupe in Paris specializing in gory, naturalistic horror plays in the fashion of the Grand Guignol. The director, Jason Robards, is presenting Poe's "Murders in the Rue Morgue". Robard's wife, the actress Madeline (Christine Kauffman), whose mother (Lilli Palmer) had been murdered by axe, is haunted by nightmares of an ax-wielding man. Rene Marot (Herbert Lom), a former lover of Madeline's mother thought long dead after being horribly disfigured on stage, mysteriously returns and begins murdering members and ex-members of the acting troupe, confounding the Paris police, who initially suspect Robards. # Jason Robards as Cesar Charron # Herbert Lom as Rene Marot # Christine Kaufmann as Madeleine Charron # Adolfo Celi as Inspector Vidocq # Maria Perschy as Genevre # Michael Dunn as Pierre Triboulet # Lilli Palmer as Mrs. Charron Year: 1971
