FINALLY! A GREAT PRINT OF THIS CLASSIC!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nightmare Castle (DVD)
This film haunted me for years as I saw it when I was 7 or 8 years old and the ending stuck with me for decades. I never knew the title of the film and I finally found it by chance a few years ago. Unfortunately, the battered prints of this film that were available didn't do it justice.
I bought this new re-mastered version hoping for the best and I was not disappointed. The print is extremely clean and looks fantastic with a few very minor glitches. This version runs one hour and 40 plus minutes! Which is considerably longer than any print I've ever seen.
The film is dripping with wonderful gothic atmosphere and filmed in glorious black and white. It's a great movie if your a fan of these creepy old horror film and this version also includes some interesting extras. A thirty minute interview with Barbara Steele, a 14 minute interview with the director and a couple of U.K. trailers for the film.
This film has never looked better and if you're a fan this is a must buy!

Thanks! Was wondering just how this edition was. I had the MADACY one and it is dreadful. Stay away from THAT one! I threw it in the garbage can already. llol
