Not even a little bit scary, but it's pretty funny, both intentionally and unintentionally. Great bitchy dialogue.
I’m definitely in favor of shudder adding more stuff of this vintage.
Uber creepy atmosphere and a plot that doesn't drag. Karloff is creepy and the set design is killer. The ending isn't quite as spectacular as the modern horror fan might like, but nevertheless a classic flick. Have a potato, kick back and give this one a watch.
Have a potato.
!! CLASSIC KARLOFF !!
