    We just watched this film.
    Oh my Goodness!
    This was so much more than we had anticipated! The production value on this movie was incredible! Every actor came across as ‘Shakespearean’. The sets, the camera work, and the technicolor aspect of the Eastman color are beautiful. Not particularly ‘vampire-ey’, but a lovely bit of film-making.
    It comes across as being a ‘Hammer’ film. Perhaps this is a precursor to that studios style.
    Thanks for sharing!

        We followed this link to another ‘Hammer’-like production; ‘Horror Hotel’ with Christopher Lee. It is supposed to take place in New England, of the United States, but all of the British actors attempting to sound American, kept sliding back into sounding English. 🙂 Bless their hearts.
