Compared to some versions, this one I thought was pretty good. The costumes were well done and it was done more in the classic vein of the story. Sure, it doesn't have Vincent Price ;-) but that didn't stop it from being well done and with a lot of emotion. (much better than the one with Frank Stallone!!)
