OSCAR-winning actor Jim Broadbent intends to get his own back on vitriolic London theatre critics with his new play.

The Moulin Rouge! star, 55, has warned his detractors that controversial play THEATRE OF BLOOD could leave them wishing they hadn't attended the opening night at the British capital's NATIONAL THEATRE.

He explains, "It's about an actor who gets his revenge on the critics. There's going to be lots of blood sprayed everywhere and a few critics need to watch out."
