It is worth seeing just for such a legendary cast!
31 January 2004 | by (Anchorage, Alaska) – See all my reviews

While this movie would not make the list of "Best Movies Ever Made," its cast makes it valuable to any buff of Classic Horror movies. I cannot understand why it is not offered on either VHS or DVD; as far as I know, it has never been made available and it is a great shame.
