Innkeeper:I'm sorry gentleman and lady, but it will be best for you to stay here tonight.
Ronnie - Englishman at Inn:Come now, my good man. You can't frighten us. We've been over your foul roads before.
Innkeeper:Please, you do not understand. It is not the road. It is the darkness. Here, our doors are protected with bat thorns.
Ronnie's Wife:What is with all this bat thorn business?
Innkeeper:It keeps them out. They're afraid of it, the demons of the castle.

Delightful!, 4 January 2003
Author: Ed from New York, NY

I haven't seen this film in quite a while but I found it very satisfying. I take issue with those especially who disliked the ending which I found absolutely right. Yes, Lionel gives his usual scenery-chewing performance as the "Von Helsing" character but it seems appropriate here.

*** out of ****
