This classic science-fiction thriller from 1958 starring the king of horror Vincent Price has been misunderstood by many film critics around the world. Most people only like the 1986 remake starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. That was also a great movie but it wasn't even near as good as the original. Most people think that the original is cheesy, not knowing how good it really is. The original is an entertaining, suspenseful, and well written film. And the remake is an entertaining gorefest with great acting by Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum. Also, the original has one of the greatest movie endings of all time, which I'm not going to spoil for you. Vincent Price is great, as always, but he's not the only one who's great in this. The whole cast is excellent. The final unmasking scene is spectacular. That's the only thing I think is better in the remake than in the original: the special effects. Of course, the remake is from the 80's and the original is from the 50's. They didn't have those effects back then. But even if the original isn't filled with blood and gore, it's a classic that gets better with age.
