The seven most deadly of sins
Scares these critics clean out of their skins
With the actor they chided
Their asses collided
And the vengeful tragedian wins.
Surly Hack and David Cairns
The critics mourn one of their own in Theatre of Blood. Top: Robert Morley and his poodles, Ian Hendry, Madeline Smith, Harry Andrews and Coral Browne; Above: Robert Coote, Arthur Lowe and Andrews. Each of the Shakespeare-derived murders enacted in the film correspond to one of the seven deadly sins.
