“A shocker thriller, with Vincent Price in one of his signature psychotic roles…cheesy fun with a delightfully villainous Vincent.”
– Dennis Schwartz, Ozu’s World Movie Reviews
“This vigorous little shocker has another psychotic role for Price as a magic-trick inventor who goes over the edge when fellow magicians rip off his act and his wife runs off with a younger rival.”
– Time Out London
Columbia Pictures’ last entry in the 1950s 3D craze, The Mad Magician (1954) stars Vincent Price in a trademark role as a round-the-bend illusionist bent on revenge. Delightfully tongue-in-cheek, the film also offers some genuinely frightfest-style moments, courtesy of director John Brahm (The Lodger, Hangover Square), one of Hollywood’s foremost stylists of the macabre.
