This does have some interesting photography, and the lighting and make-up (for the time) is well done. However do not be tempted by this. As a previous reviewer has stated the quality of the film and soundtrack is very poor.
There is some truly awful acting in this. I have never rated Bela Lugosi as an actor. He did Dracula first and in my view that is all that merits mention. Boris Karloff was the real actor of the early horror film era. Here though the rest of the cast are so awful that Lugosi's 'solid oak' performance is by comparison quite decent.
Really this is a film for completists, so only buy if you are sure. In its favour it is only 65 minutes long, but if you really must own this film I'd wait for a remastered version.
