What there is, is great.
12 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

A shame that this series is partially missing as what there is, is outstanding.

I enjoyed the ones of "Dracula," "Frankenstein," and "Jewel of the Seven Stars" in particular.

The acting and writing easily compensate for the modest production values.

I recall seeing a couple of photos from the Dracula episode and feeling intrigued. Denholm Elliott made for a surprisingly effective vampire after I had inital concerns.
