    I screened this over the weekend on my projection system and enjoyed it a lot. The sets are kind of low rent, but the acting isn't. Basil Rathbone in particular takes the script very seriously. But Carradine really hams it up with his Shakespearian schtick that he was famous for doing for tourists on Hollywood Blvd back in the day. Overall, I enjoyed it. When Tor came on the screen, I had to grab an image with my iPhone to use as a Facebook profile image.

    Chicago's Horror Host SVENGOOLIE riffed on this one back in the '90s. I bet that Rich Koz would love another shot at this one with the potential Hell's Kitchen/Chef Gordon Ramsay riffs, LOL!

    That Tor Johnson pic looks rather ominous, not unlike the Halloween Mask that was later inspired by his image!

    CHEERS! :)

    Do I add to my already HUGE BD/SD collection, or will the original SD hold up when upscaled?

    The blu-ray definitely looks better than the DVD. It's as good as it will ever look. I guess it depends on how much you like the movie.

    The DVD is full frame, no extras; the Blu is OAR 1.85:1, with a commentary and more. You know what to do. :)
