A fine collection of tales from the crypt. I might add some James Whale: THE OLD DARK HOUSE, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, or some Browning: FREAKS or DRACULA, or maybe DRACULA'S DAUGHTER by Whoever. maybe Bava's BLACK SUNDAY, maybe THE CHANGELING, maybe Vadim's BLOOD AND ROSES with Claude Renoir behind the camera, maybe the Kaufman INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, maybe some Lewton like THE BODY SNATCHER or I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, maybe the Siodmak SON OF DRACULA, and certainly Edgar Ulmer's BLACK CAT. Maybe Bette Davis and Lillian Gish being embalmed before our eyes in the atrocious WHALES OF AUGUST.

Maybe some tasty TV candy, like WHITECHAPEL or PENNY DREADFUL or THE SIGNAL-MAN.

Or maybe not. Who knows?

You gotta get one, you gotta you gotta!! Some of the wickedest Ealing comedies, including a bunch of Alastair Sim, are on Blu-ray only for region 2!

I was going to post a sacartisc comment but since I've found several ledgies who included this movie, I need to ask: Why is this among your faves? I recall it was so boring. I've read also the original novel author claimed to have been the first person to start laughing at the theater in which he saw the film. And William Friedkind said "It's just a stupid mess made by a dumb guy". Besides the general negative response (that I didn't read at the time I saw the movie), I found it really really bad and boring. Is there something I didn't see?
