Remarkable lighting and directing for such an old movie, I was always was interested in black and white. Seeing a lot of films of that era were poorly done.

Taking the time period into account, that was pretty damn fun.

The scares are way out of date, but the film's still packed full of funny, eccentric performances. More of a dark comedy than a 'horror' movie, at least by today's standards.
