This is such an unexpected delight. Everyone knows about the musical at this point, but I had no idea how faithful it was to the original -- nor how hilarious this version is. I had such a great time with it!

Legacy aside, the black comedy and nasally speech of our lead doesn't help this movie age all that well. Humor and horror have changed drastically in the half century since this was released so if anything, it functions more as a time capsule that a film. Watch this film for the famous line, "Feed me." Watch this film for a young Jack Nicholson acting like a sadist in the dentist's office. Watch this film to see the origins of a classic horror concept. Do not watch this film for quality entertainment.

It met my expectations. It is a very good horror-comedy. It was a fair mix of silliness and horror. Totally recommend watching it if you need something slightly more tame to watch.

no offense to Roger Corman who is a legend in his rights, but this movie was a stinker. hasn't aged well in it's 62 years on this planet. Praise i'll give is for having a young Jack Nicholson in it. Really glad the remake came out, and turned this into a musical. much more watchable, and more fun.
