Such a strange, cool little film. Browning seemed to only make movies about oddballs or people pretending to be something they arent. This and some of his films with Lon Chaney fall into the latter category. I found the special fx to be actually quite good for the time, and Barrymore attacks the role with gusto, getting the most out of each word of dialogue. 4.5 stars, great film, just not much horror here really.
