Having not seen this for many years, if not decades, I throughly enjoyed this mid 60s Hammer horror. It has the cast of casts with both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in leading roles, although Lee is mainly used in the 2nd half of the film.
The film is directed by Hammers finest, Terence Fisher, who as far as I can tell never made a bad film. With an inimitable music score by James Bernard, and a good script this is a safe bet to buy, especially as its reletively cheap at the moment. The transfer is pretty good and the film is in widescreen. I'd certainly never seen it in widescreen before.
For me Peter Cushing dominates the film. He gives one of those effortless performances, where you think, well hes not doing very much really, but he is..... In the labatory, in court, just every scene hes in. Its a riveting performance as always!
On the downside, well not much really, I thought Christopher Lee was slightly miscast, and there are no extras to speak of.
