"Cauldron of Blood," originally titled "Blind Man's Bluff" and known as "El Coleccionista de Cadaveres" in Mexico, is one of Boris Karloff's final films, released after this his death. Ironically, although Karloff was ill with emphysema, he got this role because Claude Reins was too ill to accept the part. Certainly not as bad as the final quartet of cheap horror films Karloff made for a Mexican producer in 1968, "Cauldron of Blood" is still a cheesy movie. I would recommend you check out one of Karloff's lesser known horror films from the 1930s like "The Black Room" instead.
It's a typical 60's cheesy euro technicolour horror feature but is visually very attractive and has an interesting score and a nice opening title sequence making it better than many films of this genre. The print quality is very good plus there's a bonus Karloff serial episode.

If you think this is bad, trying watching the last four "quickies" he did which were released posthumously.
