Goofs

To give the impression of climbing down a long flight of stairs to the catacombs, Lugosi and Brent walk in circles around the same few steps. The effect is given away when their timing gets off and Brent, who's supposed to be ahead of Lugosi, is seen popping into frame behind him. See more »

Quotes

Count Montressor: Early in the war, when the Fascists were in full power, I had to give the property to a General Fortunato. Actually, Fortunato used to be a stable boy here, but he rose by devious means until he became one of Mussolini's favorites and after that a general.

Good Episode - Lugosi is Great
23 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tonight is the first time I've seen any of the "Suspense" series - and choose this one because of Bela Lugosi. If the rest of the shows anything close to this one then I would enjoy the entire series. This particular episode is worth watching.

Bela Lugosi is really great in this as Gen. Fortunato. He's always good no matter the film but here he really outdone himself - convincing. I also enjoyed watching Romney Brent as Count Montressor just as much as watching Lugosi. The two worked well together in this Edgar Allan Poe adaptation of A Cask of Amontillado.

While this is not 100% Poe's work - it is a good take on the 1846 short story. I enjoyed watching this and I think fans of suspense, thrillers and Bela Lugosi will enjoy watching too.

8/10
