Christopher Lee boosts otherwise routine film, 16 October 2001
Author: b-rain (crowebb@excite.com) from atlanta, ga

Hammer delves into Russian history with Christopher Lee as the mysterious monk who worms his way into the royal family. Ignoring political aspects(The czar isn't even shown!), Rasputin is presented as a purely evil figure, the same as Dracula. Lee's over-the-top performance raises this a little above routine, but not much. Excellent production values though. Image Quality: Anchor Bay's dvd looks very good. The letter-boxed, anamorphic transfer is presented at a 2:1 aspect ratio, cropped slightly from the original 2.35:1 Sound: mono, acceptable quality Extras: The audio commentary, with Lee, Barbara Shelley and others, makes this disc worth getting. Very enjoyable and informative, with Lee being the obvious highlight
