    I found it to be a masterpiece, personally. Bizarre, sadistic, and original. The chemistry between the actors is miraculous. 8 years 5 months ago

    Surprisingly really good! The atmosphere steadily builds to a chilling creep factor, the chemistry between karloff and lugosi is perfect and the directing is pretty inspired at times - many of the shots and cuts felt modern and clever. It watches like a short story reads (if that makes sense lol). Worth the watch IMO. 3 years 2 months ago
