Critics reviews

The early scene in which Father Sandor warns our heroes away from Karlsbad and its mysterious castle couldn’t be more generically foreboding, yet it’s performed with such sincere gusto that you just can’t wait for these clueless toffs to stroll into that terrible matte painting and become DracSnacks. But while I recall quite liking Lee in Horror (made eight years earlier), he’s kind of embarrassing in this entirely silent incarnation.
