Magic Mountain
17 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly clever turn on Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, sort of like Thomas Mann meet Bram Stoker meet Edgar Allen Poe. I looked for Mann's name in the writing credits, not really expecting to see them, and didn't, nevertheless you might note the attendant that's supposed to watch while Lockhart is getting treated in the submersion tank is reading Der Zauberberg, well at least temporarily. A shout out of acknowledgment. A cameo for Mr Mann.

Otherwise just the best mad scientist movie that I've probably ever seen. Very well acted, photographed, and staged. Great scenery, and well stomach turning effects. A trap that catches the audience as well as Mr Lockhart.
