Cushing, Lee & Hammer - Need I say more?
on 30 June 2017
Hammer's first bone fide horror (ahead of 1958's "Dracula") and all the elements - in front and behind the camera - are present and correct. Cushing is excellent but it's Lee's understated, and often underrated, performance that stands out. Again I really bought this for the Special Features (incl. the informative / entertaining audio commentary) and even though I'm not a Hammer fan it's still an enjoyable movie decades later.
