Cagliostro carries on
26 July 2008 | by (NYC suburbs) – See all my reviews

An assistant professor (Lloyd Bochner) from Boston travels to France for his thesis on Cagliostro and purchases a mirror covered over with paint that once belonged to the evil magician. Back home, he scrapes away the paint and finds the diabolical prestidigitator waiting -and eager to get back to the world of the living...

In this far-fetched fantasy, Cagliostro (played with sinister glee by Henry Daniell) is able to hypnotize anyone gazing upon the mirror into leaving their body and entering its fourth dimension; he then inhabits the shell left behind to live life to the fullest by going on a serial killing spree. Marion Ross plays the professor's fiancée and at one point he proposes a toast to her saying "Happy Days!". One of Louis XVI's mistresses is trapped in the mirror to keep Cagliostro company while he waits for his next victim and the tale is very dark indeed with nearly the entire cast killed off in one way or another. One of the best in the series!
