Review by Michael Faber (posted on 23-May-2007)

A marvel for it's time. A bit of fantasy noir. Quick pacing with delightfully campy, and energetic performances by Winwood and Rathbone. Gary Lockwood is at his most adorable and even Vampira gets scene or two to munch on. I've probably seen it 20 times and still get a kick out of it. Great fun. Wouldn't mind seeing a remake in the right hands.
