Format: DVD
Made back to back with Dracula Prince of Darkness, using the same sets, and most of the same actors, it was made on the cheap, and looks it too. Historically, its a duff. Entertainment wise, its not bad. The story covers the emergence of Rasputin into Romanov society before the Russian Revolution. The script is rather weak, but the fine actors do carry it though. Christopher Lee made a great effort in his role as Rasputin. Francis Matthews; Dinsdale Landen and Richard Pasco play the conspirators who finally kill Rasputin believing his influence on the Tsarina could lead to the downfall of the Romanovs which of course does happen in 1917. In supporting roles are two lovely Hammer actresses Barbara Shelley and Suzan Farmer who were also in Dracula Prince of Darkness. Overall, its not a bad effort. It has enough material to while away an evening, but dont expect any shocks though. Picture and sound arent too bad on DVD. However, as far as extras are concerned, there are none whatsoever. Still, its cheap enough to buy, and maybe if you are a die hard Hammer fan, am sure you will add this to your collection.

Format: DVD
I love Hammer films, but a few scenes into this and I was thinking about hitting the eject button and consigning this to the car boot pile. Thank heavens I stuck with it.

I know zilch about Rasputin, but I am reasonably sure fact and this film never once smiled at each other, but it is Lee's booming "I am not Dracula" voice, his annoyingly over the top wig and false beard and a performance that initially seemed to be seriously lacking in anything much to get excited about.

We're treated to a bit of fisticuffs (and a trade mark "youch" moment that Hammer do so well - no spoilers but....youch!) but then there really was little to get me excited. And when Rasputin is being told off for his misdemeanours and he holds his hands out proclaiming them to be a gift from God then I was actually cringing.

How lovely that I found myself warming hugely to this film, not least when Richard Pasco enters the movie as a struck off drunken doctor that blunders into the life of the omnipresent Lee. Their chemistry enlivens the film and once the sexiness starts then the whole thing is taken off into new realms of fun.

But it is the ending that is the crowning glory of the film. A superb performance from Lee left me realizing that I was a moron for thinking him to be hamming it up earlier in the film. I was just indoctrinated to seeing him as a vampire and more fool me. No spoilers here but in those last few moments I was, for the first time since I was a kid, spooked by a Hammer film and yeah I admit it, it did make me jump (just a wee bit, but enough).

If you've never seen it, then get it and bear with it because the rewards pay dividends in the end. Great film.

Yes, I agree with the previous customer regarding the poor audio for this otherwise fine release of Rasputin The Mad Monk by Studio Canal. The picture quality is great, certainly the best I've ever seen for this awesome Hammer Film, but the audio, well it gets NO stars, which reduces my rating of the overall package to three stars. It sounds like they did nothing to the audio in the remastering process! It sounds bland, two much treble and no bass. Of course this is most noticable with the musical soundtrack. What can be done to improve the audio is limited with these 1960's films, but this one falls way short of the work that went into Canal's blu ray releases of Dracula Prince of Darkness and Plague of the Zombies. From the very opening of the 20th Century Fox fanfare, this one sounded like something was very wrong. It, of course, sounds worse playing through a full theater system.

I can't believe Canel carelessly released it this way. There are even very noisy parts [like an old 78 rpm record] noticable here and there throughout the disc; and in writing this review I haven't yet listened to the audio commentaries or other extras. As for a replacement release--well I hope so. I've never been involved in having to request one. By the way this audio problem exists, to a lesser extent, on their same day release of The Mummy's Shroud.

Must concur with others re audio.....no depth whatsoever....very tinnie.... got my copy in a box set here in OZ....obviously an issue worldwide. DVD sounded great....WTF! Video is absolutely stunning for a film of this ilk. I know Blu-ray attempts to create the original cinema experience, but surely the sound wasn't this awful. Audio is listed as LPCM 2.0, but in fact it's Dolby mono with the DVD in Dolby stereo...try and figure that one out! Chow Chow for Now Now.

The decade old Anchor Bay release of this title on DVD has superior audio, that's all there is to it. This is not a sublte difference. There has been a tranfser error clearly. Please note the picture is superp,...stunning! I know we all appreciate any effort to get Hammer Films onto a consumer format that allows us to view the films in the highest quality possible. Whoever did the dvd authoring needs to make good on this. Hammer Films has paid for a product that is faulty. We know the Dracula Prince of Darkness Blu-ray had sync issues, it appears this is the same outfit that created that problem (and made good on it with a recall) so this is looking like a trend. Hammer Films/Amazon please take note and issue a recall.
