Christopher Lee told online entertainment site 'Entertainment Asylum' that there were some movies of his that he'd never watch again. This one was undoubtedly one of them. The dialogue and plot are banal, and the background music is virtually nonexistent, meaning that the movie is full of long, pregnant pauses as actors stride into rooms to read their lines.
Nevertheless, Christopher Lee plays an excellent villain. In fact, when put up against Mel Ferrer's weak portrayal of concert pianist Stephen Orlac, it's impossible to avoid rooting for the bad guy.
This is a picture of British horror entertainment before Hammer came along. All I can say is, thank goodness for Hammer! Watch it for Lee's acting, Other than that, be prepared to laugh your head off.
