Christopher Lee is excellent as the mute monster, but this is Cushing's film all the way.


Empire by Kim Newman

In its best scenes, it adds dynamism and British grit to a genre that had previously tried to get by on atmospherics and mood alone. It manages to be shocking without being especially frightening, and its virtues of performance and style remain striking.
