In Theatre of Death, a series of horrific murders plague the city of Paris, the trail of bodies leads directly to the theater and its cast of the damned who are directed by the cruel and domineering Phillipe Darvas (Christopher Lee).
CIRCUS OF HORRORS (1960): After being drummed out of the medical profession, the brilliant plastic surgeon Dr. Goethe takes over a small travelling circus. Using his unique skills, the doctor transforms a number of disfigured women with criminal pasts into great beauties, and then blackmails them into performing in his circus. Any woman who attempts to leave meets with a horrible "accident," which draws the attention of Scotland Yard and leads to the doctor's downfall.
THEATRE OF DEATH (1967): Christopher Lee stars in this British shocker as Phillipe Darvas, the leader of The Theatre of Death, a Grand Guignol theater troupe in Paris. Attracted to one of the leads in their gruesome plays, a police surgeon begins frequenting the theater. At the same time, a series of grotesque murders plague Paris, and soon The Theatre of Death falls under suspicion. As the surgeon becomes more involved with the group, he begins to realize that something more sinister that he ever imagined is going on behind the scenes.
