The Flesh and Blood Show
Directed by Pete Walker
A group of young actors are stalked by a killer while rehearsing a stage show. Hired to create a revue for London’s West End, the randy thespians camp out in an abandoned theater and split their time between idiotic improvisations and naughty nude antics. But when the cast members start turning up dead, they’ve got to figure out whether the killer is one of their own - or someone with a dark connection to the theater’s past. British horror director Pete Walker’s (SCHIZO) nightmarish slasher makes a perfect double feature with Michele Soavi’s STAGE FRIGHT.

I tend to be pretty generous with B-grade movies, but man, this one was really dreadful. Quite dull, melodramatic, and terrible dialogue, with it's only saving grace being a moderate amount of early 70's nudity. But that wasn't nearly enough to overcome how awful it was.
More flesh than blood in this film. More of a mystery-thriller than a horror-slasher, and not completely satisfying in either category. Still, I liked it and will watch it again. Not sure exactly what pleases me about the movie...perhaps an atmosphere of quaint innocence, like an extended Scooby Doo episode, despite the frequent nudity.
I say old chap, this was astonishingly poor.
